Born from a stage production of its musical/rock opera, Blitzen Trapper’s new album release Wild & Reckless hones in on a bygone era of the band’s hometown of Portland with a Sci-Fi love story. The title track recalls the energy of youth. Blitzen Trapper mined their lyrical storytelling and Oregonian roots to create a story for the stage that fuses the energy of a rock concert with the imaginative possibility of the theater. Wild and Reckless traces the unforgettable tale of two kids on the run, in a futuristic vision of Portland’s past.

Blitzen Trapper finished up a tour in support of their most recent album with two shows at their hometown of Portland’s Doug Fir Lounge. During the shows, the alt country outfit played Neil Young’s iconic album ‘Harvest’ in its entirety. Blitzen Trapper will release ‘Live Harvest,’ a limited edition LP documenting that show, for Record Store Day .

“I think we all knew the record before we even tried to play it, [it] came natural,” frontman Eric Earley says. “It’s one of those records that takes us to that place of comfort and nostalgia like the ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ or a Chevy Impala. It just feels good to play.”
