Trampled By Turtles has announced the release date for their forthcoming sixth studio album, Alpenglow, on October 28th, 2022, from Thirty Tigers. Produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Alpenglow is named after the optical phenomenon that takes places when the sun casts a reddish glow across the mountains at dawn and dusk. The album opens with “It’s So Hard To Hold On”, and the single and video for it have been unveiled ahead of the album. Trampled by Turtles operate as a Rock band, but one that utilizes string instrumentation.

In the new song, the narrator “contemplates the passing of time and how imperative it is to savor it while you have it”. For the video, the group reached out to their fans and asked them to send in photos and videos of their experiences at Trampled By Turtles shows. The result is this joyful video for  “It’s So Hard To Hold On,” which only represents a mere fraction of what came in.

10 of the 11 tracks on Alpenglow were written by lead singer Dave Simonett. The Tweedy-penned “A Lifetime To Find” features “a simple back-and-forth dialogue with Death, which ends as one might expect”. Trampled By Turtles have also just announced a fall tour in support of Alpenglow.
