New Video from Blitzen Trapper - Girl In A Coat

Bliten Trapper’s newest video directed by Daniel Elkayam (Blitzen Trapper’s “Black River Killer” & “The Tree”) is a heartfelt and poignant video for American Golwing’s track, “Girl in a Coat”, which stars the band’s drummer Brian Koch and his grandfather, Arthur Koch. Brian Koch, who also wrote and produced the video, stated, "Four years ago I interviewed my grandfather at the age of 96 to talk about his life. I was struck by how, even though so much had become blurry, confused or completely fallen away from his memory, some things remained. Just shy of his 100th birthday, Daniel and I began to create a video from my grandfather’s perspective, blurring the boundaries of time and space in memory. “Girl In A Coat,” with its wearied narrative of retrospection, seemed the perfect match for the concept."



Blitzen Trapper are currently on a headline tour supporting American Goldwing and will immediately follow-up their late summer tour to act as main support for labelmates The Head and The Heart, for a tour that will begin on September 18th in Spokane, WA at Knitting Factory and wrap up October 10th in Eugene, OR at the McDonald Theatre. The band’s complete tour schedule is listed below.

Additionally, fans will be able to stream Blitzen Trapper’s upcoming set at the Newport Folk Fest on July 27th, via NPR.
 More details on that event available on the NPR website.

as is the pre-order option for the album on subpop.com for folks seeking to own Forever So on CD/LP.

Those of you that do pre-order early from subpop.com will also be the likely recipient of the subpop.com pre-order incentive of a Husky Tote Bag and the opportunity to take advantage of specially priced bundle offers of album + t-shirts. This tote bag thing is a while-supplies-last type of deal, so you should probably order now if your tote bag wants are feeling particularly feverish.

We’ve taken to the liberty of listing Husky’s full tour schedule below for you, so take a look, they may just be headed to a venue near you.
