Trampled by Turtles preview new album in hometown show

"Wild Animals" by Trampled by Turtles

“Wild Animals” by Trampled by Turtles

Trampled by Turtles will unveil tracks from their new album “Wild Animals” at a show in Bayfront Park in TBT’s hometown of Duluth, Minnesota, this Saturday.

Christa Lawler previewed the Duluth Trampled by Turtles concert and album in this Wednesday feature in the Duluth News Tribune.

“Wild Animals” is due out July 15, though some tracks have found their way onto the airwaves of local radio stations. Northern Community Radio and KUMD have been playing the heck out of “Are You Behind the Shining Star?” This track shows an evolving sound from Trampled by Turtles. The bluegrass sound remains, but faintly; instead the songwriting and Dave Simonett’s soulful vocals take the lead.

Trampled by Turtles remains the standard-bearer of the Duluth and Minneapolis music scenes. But it’s clear they want to develop their sound to make a run at a bigger national audience.
