TVD Ticket and Vinyl Giveaway: Trampled by Turtles at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 9/13

Just recently Trampled by Turtles released their ironically named album Wild Animals

Maybe it’s not so ironic… but the album marks the seventh release for the Minnesota-based band. Refusing to be defined by a singular genre, the five-piece has been blending elements of various genres, forming a different, hybrid sound that continues to evolve with each new release. Wild Animals, according to the band’s official bio, “is the sound of a band at the peak of their potential, strengthened from a decade together, winning some and losing some, but growing none-the-less.”

Adding to the fun and excitement of Wild Animals, Trampled by Turtles will be among the many bands playing at this year’s Route 29 Revue hosted at the Merriweather Post Pavilion on Saturday, September 13. The other bands that will be featured in the revue are Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Iron and Wine, The Devil Makes Three, Guster, and Hurray For The Riff Raff.

Want to go? We have a pair of lawn tickets to give away! But wait, there’s more… the winner will also receive an autographed vinyl copy of Wild Animals.

Different from the recording process of their previous album, Stars and Satellites (2012), Trampled by Turtles worked with producer Alan Sparhawk, offering a new outlook on recording and creating songs for the band.

The end result? An album that shows the depth and growth of the band.

As aforementioned, Trampled by Turtles is among the bands playing at this year’s Route 29 Revue. In addition to this MPP show, the band is going on tour. Their international fall tour will take the Minnesota-natives across the U.S. and Europe.

Tour dates can be viewed on their official site.

Enter to win a pair of lawn tickets to see Trampled by Turtles at this year’s Route 29 Revue AND a signed vinyl copy of TBT’s Wild Animals by leaving a comment below naming your favorite animal-named or animal-based song. I’m going with Heart’s “Barracuda.”

A winner will be chosen on Friday, 9/12. Tickets are still available for purchase.
