New Release: Trampled By Turtles – Life Is Good On The Open Road / Kelly’s Bar

Trampled By Turtles have announced the May 4th release of their long-awaited new album Life Is Good On The Open Road

After an indefinite hiatus, the group returns with their first new album in four years, consisting of 12 new songs that feature Trampled By Turtles’ signature blend of rock, folk, punk, country and their brand of progressive bluegrass. The group have also released the album’s opening track, the high-energy romp, Kelly’s Bar…

Led by the songwriting of lead singer Dave Simonett, the new songs touch on key elements from the entire spectrum of Trampled By Turtles body of work, while creating something that sounds fresh and invigorated. Simonett, and bandmates Erik Berry, Ryan Young, Dave Carroll, Tim Saxhaug and Eamonn McLain reunited at a cabin in the Minnesota woods to see if the special chemistry they once shared still existed. It did not take long for the magic to reveal itself with a renewed sense of purpose and the result shines brightly on Life Is Good On The Open Road

The band has also announced a Spring tour where they will play multiple nights in halls and headline major venues…
