Blitzen Trapper Release New EP, Video

Blitzen Trapper have released (yesterday to be precise) the "Thirsty Man" EP & video, from their seventh studio album appropriately titled VII. Accompanying the title track are two non-album exclusives - "The Prophet" and "Plenty of Thrills". The video was directed by fellow Portland native Robbie Augspurger. "This video had a mind of it's own, taking us into dark territory as usual", says frontman and principal songwriter Eric Earley. "Nothing like a bright red high heel phone to make you long for the days of land lines and speed of light travel."  Head here to see the new video.
