Trampled By Turtles new record on the way

Probably my favorite touring bluegrass band these days, Trampled By Turtles, will release their new record Stars & Satellites on April 10th.  They played a bunch of great new songs at their sold-out Bowery Ballroom show last November.  This show, more than any show I've seen since moving to NYC, was overrun by assholes.  Kind of strange considering that Trampled presents heartfelt bluegrass tunes, and that the band is some of the nicest, most un-broey guys I've met.  It was the audience I'd expect at a Skrillex concert where Foster the People opened, not a bluegrass show.  Regardless, all signs point to Trampled moving up in the world, as their next NYC performance will find them at Webster Hall on April 17th.  There'll certainly be a little more room at this venue to avoid some of the stranger characters in the diverse fanbase these guys are drawing.  Check out the album preview bellow, or head over to Amazon where a few of Trampled's albums are still going for $5 downloads.   

Pre-order Stars and Satellites here.  

Shameless plug, here's a video I shot of Trampled ripping at my former radio station, KHOL:
