About Trampled by Turtles
Hailing from Duluth,
Minnesota, Trampled by Turtles were originally conceived as a band on the side for Dave Simonett. In 2003, Simonett would
have his car broken into while it housed the majority of his instruments and gear. The only instrument left to Simonett would
be his acoustic guitar. Far from letting such a setback get to him, Simonett immediately began working towards a new ensemble
that would be forgiving of his lack of amplification – folk, bluegrass, and other related genres seemed an apt choice.
Having never attempted a bluegrass style before, Simonett surrounded himself with other bluegrass newcomers like bass player
and jam band legend Tim Saxhaug, fiddler and ex-drummer Ryan Young, Dave Carroll on the banjo, and Erik Barry on the mandolin.
Together, they began experimenting to develop a sound based on a frenetic tempo and rock stylings as well as folk and bluegrass.
from a Ghost Town would be Trampled by Turtles' first release, and would come out in 2004. The tradition-reliant bluegrass
community would at first be unsure of how to welcome these oddball bluegrass rockers, but the Turtles knew they were on to
something special. They would release two more albums based on their speedy signature sound: 2005's Blue Sky and the Devil
and 2007's Trouble. At long last in 2008, Trampled by Turtles' Duluth would completely win over the bluegrass community. Three
albums later, Trampled by Turtles is a fixture at the biggest concerts and festivals like Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot, and Coachella.
It would take a while for Trampled by Turtles to become established in the folk and bluegrass community,
but when they did they would be welcomed with open arms. Trampled by Turtle's first seriously successful album would be Duluth
from 2008. It would be this album where their unique, punk-like interpretation of bluegrass would start to shine through.
Their following album, 2010's Palomino, would rise even higher to top the bluegrass chart. This album's breakneck style would
be exemplified by the rousing and raging "Wait So Long." After Palomino, the stellar Stars and Satellites would be a huge
success, and would remain at the top of the bluegrass charts in both 2012 and 2013. Stars and Satellites would also be Trampled
by Turtles first album to make the Top 40 in the Billboard 200, and it would showcase their furious, finger-picked contemporary
concerns while tempering their fire with the breezier ballads like "The Calm and Crying Wind." The band's 2013 live album,
Live at First Avenue, would do very well at number two on the bluegrass charts. In 2014, Wild Animals would find its way to
the top thirty on the Billboard 200. This most recent album would demonstrate Trampled by Turtles' proven ability to constantly
evolve. Wild Animals would take a darker tone than their previous releases, and has a slower and more pensive ambience. While
the band has been noted for their workmanlike deftness of tone, this album would amp up the reverb for a delightfully ghostly
progression of the Turtles' style.
Trampled by Turtles' signature sound is a favorite on television
shows and movies. Their earnest and unstoppable melodies have been featured on programs such as Squidbillies and The Deadliest
Catch. They would also be featured via their track "Alone" on The Way Way Back, a movie that would be released in 2013. The
band would first appear on national television on The Late Show with David Letterman in April of 2012, and they would return
to the show in July of 2014.
