“The set is so exciting…”—NPR Music
“Trampled by Turtles mixes rhythmic banjos and guitars with lovelorn fiddles, creating a sound that seeps deeply into our pores and permeates our core until their riffs merge with our pulse.”—Washington Post

Wild Animals, the highly anticipated album from critically acclaimed Trampled by Turtles, will be released worldwide July 15 on Thirty Tigers. The new record was produced by the lead singer-songwriter of LowAlan Sparhawk, and recorded in the legendary Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, MN (Nirvana, Andrew Bird, The Jayhawks).
Of the new music Dave Simonett (guitar, vocals) notes, “We all tried to come into this thing extremely open-minded. How can we sound new to ourselves? I feel like the sound has changed and is changing, especially from Palomino to now. A lot of our reputation from even just a couple years ago was that we were this fast band, which we can do, and we do that. But this record focused a little bit more on other aspects of our playing together.”
The first single, “Are You Behind the Shining Star?,” and the Wild Animals vignette is streaming now at NPR’s “The Current” (Minnesota Public Radio): See below for full track listing.
Wild Animals follows 2012’s Stars and Satellites which garnered widespread praise—the album debuted Top 30 on the Billboard chart and the band performed on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Conan,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and “A Prairie Home Companion.” Trampled by Turtles’ massive touring schedule have kept them busy since then with various sold out runs and prime slots at festivals including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits Festival, Outside Lands, Sasquatch! Music Festival, Firefly Festival, Newport Folk Festival and many more.
Furthermore, Trampled by Turtles is excited to reveal their first annual Festival Palomino launching September 20 at Canterbury Parkjust outside of Minneapolis. Each act was selected by the band—the confirmed performers include The Head and the Heart, Low, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Field Report, Apache Relay, Erik Koskinen, plus more to come. The band has also confirmed nationwide headline dates to support the new release including a nearly sold out Red Rock Amphitheater appearance. See below for full routing details and visit the band’s website for more information on Festival Palomino:
Formed in Duluth, MN in 2003, Trampled by Turtles is Simonett, Tim Saxhaug (bass, vocals), Dave Carroll (banjo, vocals), Erik Berry and Ryan Young (fiddle).  Within the contained music scene of Duluth, the members of the band did their own time in punk and rock bands brandishing their electricity proudly before switching to acoustic instruments. While they never set out to be a bluegrass band, Trampled by Turtles employs many of the same traditional techniques of the genre, but their differences in influences and attack make for their unique sound. After spending years refining their live show and building fans via word of mouth, they released their debutPalomino to little fanfare out of the gates. The story quickly built and eventually the record spent over a year straight on the Billboard Heatseakers Chart.
