Song Premiere: Trampled By Turtles - "Alone"

January 24, 2012  |  10:30am

Minnesota quintet Trampled By Turtles is what happens when members of various punk and rock bands get together to start a bluegrass group. Originally forming in 2003, the band channeled their punk-inspired energy into acoustic instrumentation—including acoustic guitar, banjo and fiddle—which resulted in 2010’s widely praised Palomino and a devoted live following.

On April 10, Trampled By Turtles will release their forthcoming album, Stars and Satellites via Thirty Tigers/RED. Recording the album live in such a unique atmosphere—a log home called “Soleil Pines” outside of Duluth, Minnesota—helped capture the band’s dynamics.

According to singer/vocalist Dave Simonett, “We wanted to make a record that breathes.” He continued, “musically we wanted to step out of our comfort zone…This record is all about going inward.”

Check the the first single “Alone,” the album trailer and tour dates below.
