Blitzen Trapper gears up for fall tour with Dawes by whittlin'

Having just released their new album American Goldwing, alt-country sextet Blitzen Trapper are hitting the road to tour with fellow folkies Dawes this October. Hailing from the grand city of Portland, Blitzen Trapper sound like a cross between Neil Young and Deer Tick, with a repertoire of acoustic, steady rockin’ tunes that stretches six albums deep. For those unfamiliar with their music, or fans who just need a quick refresher, both bands have also teamed up to release a free tour sampler, with three previously released tracks from each band.

By the way, tickets for the last two West Coast dates in Oregon and Los Angeles go on sale today.
