Portland Oregon’s own, Blitzen Trapper, are pleased to announce a headlining tour run throughout the Midwest and Canada in support of their 8th album All Across This Land (Vagrant/BMG) that was released last October to rave reviews. Starting May 27th, the tour kicks off in Evans, GA where the band will be direct support for Willie Nelson before heading to the Northwest, followed by Canada and the Midwest. A full list of dates can be found below.

Blitzen Trapper recently stopped by Third Man Records in Nashville for a special show where Third Man recorded their live set direct-to-acetate. Recorded in the Third Man Blue Room, without overdubs or editing, the live performance audio was mixed in real time on a Rupert Neve 5008 console and instantly cut to vinyl by master cutter George Ingram using a 1953 Scully Lathe that previously churned out masters for Cincinnati’s legendary King Records. Legend has it that James Brown’s It’s A Man’s World was cut on this lathe among others.  Third Man is the only live venue in the world where artists can record their performances direct-to-acetate.

Before the tour and in celebration of Record Store Day, the band will be releasing their sophomore album, Field Rexx, which was originally self-released in 2005 on CD.  It’s the first time the album is available on vinyl and features 3 unreleased bonus tracks and a free download code.
