Recorded in an isolated farmhouse in the German countryside, St. Beaufort‘s love of storytelling explores new territory on this new album. The band returns to their roots. They explore legends close to Joe’s home in the American Southwest and color this movement by expanding on their core sound with waves of orchestrated instrumentation, such as fiddle, horn, or bassoon. Lyrically, day to day themes of a desk jobs are juxtaposed against the harsh background of desert prospecting and the constant drive westward. Dramatic tales are brought into the harsh light of loss experienced by the story’s sideline characters. The album tells a story of greed and conflict, of immigrants and natives, of searchers and dreamers. A multitude of precarious paths lie ahead of every quest, but while there is a darkness at times, the album questions the fatalistic view and eventually points to hope. Trails & Guns was produced by Tomás Peralta and mixed and mastered at Candy Bomber Studio in Berlin. The album will be released on Blue Whale Records (digital/CD/vinyl).
