Earlier this summer, rock and roll collective Trigger Hippy announced their return from an extended four-year hiatus as well as a new lineup featuring founding members drummer Steve Gorman (Black Crowes) and bassist Nick Govrik, along with newcomers guitarist Ed Jurdi and vocalist Amber Woodhouse. Former members include Jackie Greene, Jimmy Herring, Joan Osborne, Audley Freed, and others.
Tigger Hippy is gearing up to release a new studio album, Full Circle & Then Some, due out on October 11th. The forthcoming LP will follow up the band’s 2014 self-titled debut LP. Premiered exclusively via JamBase, Trigger Hippy has shared the album’s lead single, “The Door”.
Nick Govrik shared his thoughts with JamBase on the new track. He explained,
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. 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.
