In support of their upcoming album American Goldwing, out September 13th on Sub Pop Records, Blitzen Trapper is excited to give fans a sneak peak by streaming their new album on Paste Magazine. Listen here.

Praised by The New York Times for flirting “with fuzz-tone riffs and proto-psychedelic Southern rock, diversifying a 1970s fixation” American Goldwing is “stubbornly engaging, filled with characters who drink and regret it, and struggle to understand their own decisions. Tucked amid the pastiche are good laments like [songs] “Taking It Easy Too Long,” a rueful self-evaluation, and ‘Love The Way You Walk Away,’ a brokenhearted shrug.”

Watch the brand new video for “Love The Way You Walk Away”.

Beginning October 7th in Petaluma, CA, Blitzen Trapper will embark on a six-week North America co-headlining tour with Dawes. Tour dates below.

Under The Radarraves, “Blitzen Trapper’s gnarled musical roots are so diverse and far-reaching that when they make a ‘back to their roots’ album such as American Goldwing it’s not a retread of past glories. Instead, [American Goldwing] is another delightful tinkering with the dusty engine of Americana music.” Guitar World adds “accessible and a melodic take on folk and country … [American Goldwing] sees Blitzen Trapper expanding their sound and subject matter, exploring American history and the bewildering nature of relationships.”
