Trampled By Turtles Reveal New Album Details, New Song, Tour Dates

Trampled by Turtles will release their highly anticipated new album Stars and Satellites on April 10 via Thirty Tigers/RED. Recorded in a log home outside of Duluth, MN called “Soleil Pines,” the group enlisted the help of engineer Tom Herbers (Low, Jayhawks) and churned out an album rich with four-part harmonies and infectious hooks and harmonies.

“We wanted to make a record that breathes,” says guitarist Dave Simonett. “Musically we wanted to step out of our comfort zone.”

The band will support the new album with a North American tour this spring. All tickets will be onsale via Trampled by Turtles’ Fan Club ticketing.

You can hear the first song off the new album, “Alone,” below. Also, check out a video from the band’s studio sessions.
