Blitzen Trapper will release a new album, Destroyer of the Void, June 8th on Sub Pop.

"During two distant and brief breaks from the band's near-incessant touring for Furr--one in January 2009 and the other in January 2010--Earley and a few of his bandmates entered the attic studio of the lauded Portland musician and studio engineer who had recorded Furr standouts "Lady on the Water" and "Black River Killer," Mike Coykendall (Bright Eyes, M Ward, She & Him). In those two winters, in that old attic, Coykendall worked with Earley to bring life to these songs, including material the songwriter had been working on for years, most notably the piano ballad "Sadie." The producer wasn't the only local luminary to fill out the album. Preternatural musical siblings Peter Broderick (Horse Feathers, Efterklang) and Heather Woods Broderick (Efterklang) wrote the album's string arrangements, while folk standout Alela Diane lent her angelic vocals to the duet "The Tree."" - Sub Pop

They don't look pretentious at all.

Finally, a band uglier than Wilco.

I dig blitzen trapper alot but this new track sounds lame as hell. They've been on the cusp of 'adult contemporary' since Furr and it seems like this new one is the tipping point...

BV commentor's are typically the biggest douche bags & they don't buy music anyway, so why should this band care what you think... they'll still be playing music for a living when you are serving coffee to them

Awww, poor Mr. Itchybeard!

The loans seem to be essential for guys, which are willing to start their company. In fact, it is easy to get a short term loan.
