Biography

Throughout the course of their 12-year existence, Lake Trout has consistently defied genres within the
music industry. The Baltimore five-piece has displayed a unique, multi-dimensional blend of rock,
creating ambient soundscapes over ferocious rhythms that channel psychedelia, industrial and modern
indie rock.

Reinventing their sound from record-to-record has been the calling card of this group of diversely

influenced musicians. Lake Trout’s most recent album, Not Them, You, is their second record for Palm
Pictures. The album, produced by Tony Doogan (Mogwai, the Delgados) and Dave Fridmann (The
Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev), has garnered phenomenal reviews. Both London’s Guardian and Urb
gave the CD 4 out of 5 stars, and Big Cheese called the album “near flawless.” The album is start-to-
finish, a masterpiece of emotion and depth.

To fully grasp the ingenuity of this band you must see them live. Alchemists of mood and emotion,
Lake Trout push the limits of both intensity and volume. According to The Village Voice, “the Baltimore
collective are stunningly ferocious space-sculptors capable of realigning your polarities.” The Tripwire
says “Watching them was like chewing on an extremely tasty piece of gum whose flavor regenerates
itself in spurts and waves at random intervals.”
