Where are you?

Dear Blitzen Trapper,

I bought and downloaded all your records now. Thanx for the Cd's you sent me. But... Where is BLITZEN TRAPPER? No more tours, no Schedule, no Tweets, no news?  I know from your "Melkweg" Amsterdam concert in nov2010 that a new record is coming up. 

I also downloaded the Itunes "live Sessions" but this was a little, little bit disappointing. Missed the drive and the audience. Something like the great atmosphere in "de Melkweg". The live sessions are somehow too polished , i guess. The songs are beautiful and Black Mountain Killer in a different key and chord handling is great! So the live sessions are great other "studio-like" songs. 

So, please release a pure LIVE album/download!

Thanx to my friend Rob L. He invited me to your concert!

okko, I agree.  Would love to hear some updates from the band.  While you're waiting for new material and a possible proper live album, try downloading some shows from Archive.org.  Here's a great recent show:

...and here's a great earlier show from 2007, with several great old tunes:

Enjoy.

Trapper Team

The guys have been posting some updates on Twitter, which you can see here:

This one gives a pretty good idea of what they're up to:

"we are separately in/at: home, studio, Amsterdam, Bergen."

Sounds like Marty played a solo show in Portland the other day too.

In general, the guys have been touring their butts off in 2010, so I imagine they're taking it fairly easy right now.

I should probably also add the latest tweet to the front page of the site here, since not everyone follows Twitter.

Thanx Matt,

i should have seen the tweets. Just have to "unfriend" some people i follow. It's a mess all those messages...

You're absolutly right. The guys should take some rest.
