CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Trampled by Turtles will be performing at the Riverbend Festival 2016 on Sunday, June 12.

Trampled By Turtles formed in 2003 in Duluth, Minnesota. From their beginnings on the Midwestern festival circuit, they have reached new heights with each album. The release of 2012’s Stars And Satellites saw the band play to more fans than ever, sell close to 100,000 albums, make their first national television appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman, and have their first concert feature, Live at First Avenue, broadcast on Palladia. This year, the band will once again headline Red Rocks Amphitheatre in addition to holding their second annual Festival Palomino in the fall.

On Wild Animals, Trampled by Turtles’ seventh studio album, themes of impermanence run deep, both lyrically and sonically. The quintet’s hybrid folk sound continues its evolution pushing the band further into the grey area between genres that defies pigeonholing. - bio from official website 

Trampled by Turtles will perform at the Coke Stage at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 12.
