Tricklebolt Release New Album: Live At The Drive In
At a time when little was possible because of COVID restrictions, the Dutch rock band Tricklebolt didn’t give up playing live.
In the summer of 2020, the band organized a special drive in concert in the leafy meadows at the foot of the Lemelerberg, The Netherlands. The unique show was recorded and the result ended up in the first drive in live album in the world.
The sold out show attracted a multicultural mix of bikers, farmers and hippies. Motorcycles, ’60s vans, flat cars, old timers and tractors entered the meadow celebrating the show with loud horns and heavy engine roars. The long-missed festival feeling was back and the euphoria rose to great heights.
Live at the Drive In is a soundtrack of an unreal time when little was possible, but hope always remained. Tricklebolt have joined forces with the Zwolle-based label Goomah Music, on which the album was released on August 13.
In addition to Vinyl and CD, the limited edition TRICKLEBOOK – filled with memorable moments, anecdotes and a personal insight into Tricklebolt’s existence and growing up – , is available in 100 copies.
