Blitzen Trapper Share ‘Christmas Is Coming Soon’ Single


When most bands unveil a holiday song these days, they often share their own take on a popular and familiar tune. Portland, Oregon rockers Blitzen Trapper went a different route and penned a brand new holiday song that they have released as a “pay-what-you-want” download.

“Christmas Is Coming Soon” was written by founding member Eric Earley. “This is the only Christmas song I’ve ever written, sort of the Christmas song equivalent of a dark comedy,” said Earley. “We wanted to create a small way for our fans to pair with us in giving this holiday season through Mercy Corps which has been doing great work since 1979 helping people in need around the world.”

All proceeds will go directly to Mercy Corps, who’s mission is to alleviate suffering, poverty, and oppression by helping to build secure, productive and just communities in some of the toughest places in the world.
