Explore the lost. Play in the dark.
It’s late. It’s dark. And it’s COLD.
But there’s a full moon out there, so we pack up our gear. Our van Moon Patrol is all juiced up. We’re off!
Destination? Middle of Nowheresville.
Tunes? ’80s and Classic Rock radio stations that buzz in and out as we roll from town to town.
Snacks? Sweet ‘n salty Gas Station grub. You treat yourself when you’re on the road.
The feels? A sort of jittery swirl deep in the belly. You know, because when you pull up on a dark gravel road that leads to a shadowy bulk of brick, wood, and weedy overgrowth…you get nervous. Too many Jason movies.
The purpose. Sometimes it feels like this country is falling apart. This is our own little way of putting some pieces back together.
DO WE USE PHOTOSHOP?
No HDR computery BS. No trays of toxic chemicals either. We just use those lights and stuff up there.

Then…one year later…Enter: Trapper Schoepp’s Primetime Illusion (out January 25, 2019). Not only did we help provide the art direction concept and shoot the artwork for the entire album, but Katie designed the whole thing too. Childhood Dream definitely unlocked. Pre-Order here ›
