, Staff

Blitzen Trapper have revealed plans to tour in support of a brand new album this fall. Just a couple of days before the release of VII, the Americana favorites will hit Boston for a show at Royale on Sunday, September 29. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at noon through Ticketmaster for $18.

VII, Blitzen Trapper’s appropriately titled seventh studio album, will hit stores on October 1. The new album follows 2011’s American Goldwing and marks their first release for Vagrant Records. Fans can get a taste of the new material with “Ever Loved Once”, which is streaming below.

“It has a certain hip-shaking funk to it,” said frontman Eric Earley of the forthcoming album in a recent interview with the Santa Barbara Independent. “I wanted to blend the smoky din of barroom honky-tonk with the backbeats of yesteryear and the laser-like intensity on an electric banjo.”
