Trampled by Turtles stampede into 2018 with new album, tour

You might say that Trampled by Turtles are coming out of their shell. (I wouldn’t say that. Not ever. But you might.)

The Duluth folk/bluegrass outfit announced that they’ll release their new album, Life Is Good on the Open Road, on May 4. Not at all coincidentally, TBT will also play the Palace Theatre that night. And again on the night after that, which, as you calendar specialists will have already deduced, is May 5. They will then hit the road for three months, where, presumably, their lives will be good.

TBT haven’t released a new album since Wild Animals in 2014, and their performances went from few in 2016 to none in 2017, as frontman Dave Simonett concentrated on his Dead Man Winter project.

Tickets to the Palace shows go on sale tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 14, at 10 a.m. via eTix.com -- $25 for floor, $40 for balcony.

Want to hear a new Trampled by Turtles song called "Kelly's Bar"? That can be arranged.
