    For fans of Portland’s Blitzen Trapper, there is plenty of reasons to wade into the water on the band’s side of the creek these days. First and foremost, the band has recently bagged themselves a slew of prize winning dates this winter/spring. By the looks of these beauties, the forthcoming trek will be the band’s biggest catch yet. Kicking off February 22nd in Seattle, the band will hit up just about every major touring market in North America through April. Not only that, but they’ll also share the stage with Fleet Foxes, Grand Archives, Menomena, Dr. Dog, Man Man, Mohjongg, and Matt Pond PA at various stops along the way.

    In addition to such a lengthy plot of dates, the Blitzen boys have also announced they have two EPs up for grabs as well. While one such release will only be available by buying direct at the band’s merch table, the other is available now on I-Tunes. Full details below. – David Pitz
