– Trampled by Turtles lead singer Dave Simonett will hit the road this spring in support of his upcoming album "Red Tail," out March 13 on Thirty Tigers.
"Red Tail" marks the first time that Simonett has recorded a collection of solo material under his own name. Simonett has previously released two albums under the Dead Man Winter moniker as a means to share and express the other side of his songwriting and artistry. His last album, "Furnace," came out in 2013.
While "Furnace" was a cathartic writing experience and documented a heavy time in his life (Simonett split from his wife), the new songs aren't necessarily connected to personal experiences. Hailing from northern Minnesota originally, Simonett draws inspiration from the outdoors using light, the seasons and natural imagery to create a mood.
