Blitzen Trapper Releases ‘Masonic Temple Microdose #1’ Single
Blitzen Trapper announced the album in early May and shared the lead single, “Magical Thinking.” The Portland, Oregon-based band followed it today with “Masonic Temple Microdose #1,” which frontman Eric Earley spoke about in a statement.
“This song is about American apathy and the nihilism that emerges from the bogus idea that complete personal freedom should be man’s ultimate goal, when in fact man’s ultimate goal should be ecological balance, all things follow from this,” Earley said. “Comedy and horror combine on this track, teenagers dropping acid in a masonic temple at the end of the empire, the American consumptive death-drive laid bare as a desire for extinction.”
“Masonic Temple Microdose #1” arrived with an accompanying music video, premiered by Consequence Of Sound. Watch it below:
