Ben Schneider conjured Lord Huron from the depths of Lake Huron during a trip to his family home in northern Michigan in 2010. Ancient memories, smoke over the moon and nights full of perilous laughter all bolstered the brew from which Lord Huron emerged. Ben brought Lord Huron back with him to Los Angeles, where strange young things are known to flourish, unhindered.

As the songs grew, so did the need for a band to play them. Answering the call ringing out from California, grand brethren from years past, friends and fellow Michiganders, Mark Barry, Miguel Briseno and Tom Renaud, left their respective paths, or bent each road to their own will, to reconvene out west. An old crew reformed in a new harbor.

After a pair of EPs, a debut album, Lonesome Dreams saw release in 2012. Tours followed that found the boys in blistering deserts, reveling in sinister paradises, wandering frozen coasts and lost among the hanging fog of bygone forests. Who can say but the soles of their shoes how far they travelled and how wide?

Trampled By Turtles

On Wild Animals, Trampled by Turtles’ seventh studio album, themes of impermanence run deep, both lyrically and sonically. The quintet’s hybrid folk sound continues its evolution pushing the band further into the grey area between genres that defies pigeonholing.

Wild Animals is the sound of a band at the peak of their potential, strengthened from a decade together, winning some and losing some, but growing none-the-less. The album captures the intense nature that goes with being alive, melding the universal and the personal.

Oregon Zoo Summer Concerts are presented by the Oregon College Savings Plan and Banfield Pet Hospital.

    I saw Lord Huron in Brooklyn years ago and it was the most amazing show. During one song they got down off the stage into the middle of the crowd and everyone sat on the floor in a circle singing along together. What I would give to see them again!

  4. Carolyn July 12, 2016 at 12:31 pm #

    These are two of my favorite bands + I’d love to surprise a friend who’s in town visiting with tickets!

  88. lorea August 5, 2016 at 11:40 am #

    Zoo concerts are the best. We’re so lucky to have small intimate venue. You can even get right up front and groove and that’s where I will be if I win!?!

  89. Ana Borel August 5, 2016 at 3:54 pm #

    Would LOVE to go :)

  90. Tarik August 5, 2016 at 5:00 pm #

    My girlfriend will very likely agree to marry me if I take her to a Lord Huron show. Please help.

  91. Mark August 6, 2016 at 4:35 pm #

    Would be great to see these guys play in the Zoo!

  92. Kylee August 6, 2016 at 4:36 pm #

    Zoooo concerts! Turtles, Hurons! Amazing!!

  93. Laura August 7, 2016 at 10:15 am #

    My friend and I love Trampled By Turtles! I grew up in Northern Minnesota and miss all this Minnesota music and the Current! Liz and I used to live in Minnesota and play them all the time, but never got to see these guys together. We’ve lived apart for years now and have finally been reunited and I cannot imagine a better celebration than this show.

  94. Christina C August 8, 2016 at 11:34 pm #

    I’d like the tickets to the Lord Huron Concert at the Zoo because it’s mine and my boyfriends favorite band thus far and it would be the perfect anniversary present for the two of us to enjoy. We have yet to attend a Zoo concert and I also believe this would be the perfect first concert at the Zoo!

    Hopefully my comment isn’t too late!

  95. Holly August 10, 2016 at 1:38 pm #

    Pooh, I missed the deadline? Love Lord Huron, any other ways to get tix? Looks like it’s sold out. Thx!!

  96. Dustin C. August 15, 2016 at 11:52 am #

    This would make for a great first concert for my kids, we live music!~!~

  97. Jake Cole August 17, 2016 at 5:49 pm #

    I would love to go to this show. I have always wanted to be trampled by turtles and meet a real lake Lord.

  98. Julie Cav August 18, 2016 at 7:18 pm #

    I’m a lady of the Great Lakes and Lord Huron is the H in HOMES.

  99. Ryan August 18, 2016 at 9:43 pm #

    Looking forward to doing this with my girlfriend after recently moving here!
