New Blitzen Trapper EP on Tuesday!


As its title would lead one to believe, the Black River Killer EP contains the disturbing and great song “Black River Killer” from Blitzen Trapper’s excellent Sept. ‘08 full-length album Furr (check the video here, it’s really great). What is perhaps less evident from the title is that it also contains 6 more songs that have been, up to now, only available as a CDR that Blitzen Trapper has been selling at their live performances for the past year or so.

Pick it up right here.

Thank you.

Portlandesque on the new Blitzen Trapper “Black River Killer” video


The remarkably industrious lads in Blitzen Trapper just recently wrapped up work on a video for the song “Black River Killer” from their album Furr. We’ve seen this video and it’s really great. In the very near future, we’ll be doing all we can to try to show this video to you as well. But, in the meantime, you can read some behind-the-scenes stuff from someone down in Portland who has also seen it, and evidently both helped to make some props for the video and appears in the thing as an extra! There’s a Portlandesque post on the making of Blitzen Trapper’s “Black River Killer” video here. Read it!

In related news, we have plans to release a 7-song “Black River Killer” EP this summer. More on that shortly…

Blitzen Trapper T-Shirts


I’ve got an awesome idea! Why don’t you show everyone you see just how much you love Blitzen Trapper by purchasing a t-shirt and then wearing it? Well, if you choose to comply with my really great idea, we have two brand new designs to choose from.
