Trigger Hippy Shares ‘The Door’ Single & Tour Dates: Exclusive Premiere


Trigger Hippy will return this fall with a new lineup and a new release, Full Circle & Then Some, which comes out on October 11. Today, JamBase is pleased to premiere a new track from the record, “The Door.”

“It’s not a song that reinvents the wheel, it’s a song about what everyone has lived through — or that everyone thinks about in one way or another,” bassist and principal songwriter Nick Govrik told JamBase. “If you’ve been in relationships with people — and that could be romantic, platonic, family, business, whatever — you find people who won’t let themselves make decisions, or say, ‘I’m not allowed to be happy because of x, y, z,’ you know? Life keeps moving.”

First launched in the mid-2000s as a casual jam among Govrik, former The Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, and other Nashville-based musicians, Trigger Hippy officially debuted in 2009 with Jimmy Herring and Audley Freed in the lineup. Other incarnations included Jackie Greene, Tom Bukovac, and Joan Osborne. The crackling current band combines Gorman and Govrik with guitarist/singer Ed Jurdi (Band of Heathens) and singer and saxophonist Amber Woodhouse.

Trigger Hippy will perform in Nashville on October 11. The band will then tour in November, beginning on November 2 in Woodstock, New York. The tour continues on November 3 in Jersey City, New Jersey followed by a show in New York City on November 5. Trigger Hippy then heads to Ardmore, Pennsylvania on November 6 and Norfolk, Connecticut on November 7. Boston will host the band for a performance on November 8. A run through the Midwest starts November 13 in Madison, Wisconsin. The tour wraps with shows on November 14 in Milwaukee, on November 15 in Chicago and on November 16 in Minneapolis.
