Yes, things have been quiet since the Texas shows in March, but we are working on new material ... schedule isn't finalized yet, but keep your ears peeled for new music late this year or early next ...
Things are quiet at the moment in VTrails-land, with life and other projects intervening most inconveniently. However, there has been a start made on some new tunes and vague plans are afoot, so watch this space ...
It took a bit longer than we planned, but new music is finally here. The album Chameleon Bones will be released on August 5, and the first single, OK is out now and available for free download, on this site or on Soundcloud. You can also check out the lyric video:

As I write, things are back to their natural order, with the band once again separated by the Pacific Ocean, after a great few weeks in Queensland where we played the First! Ever! live Valery Trails shows. Some more video may surface, but for now, here's proof at least that we actually managed to pull off this unlikely feat:
Thanks to the good folks of Brisbane, Nambour and Toowoomba (and those who came from further afield), it was great to meet you and make some noise for you. People of the US, hopefully we can bring some live VTrails action to your shores at some stage. People of other nations - honestly, it's going to be a bit tricky to get to you, but let us know if you have any ideas.
In honour of the inaugural live shows, we released a single - In Your Heart (from Buffalo Speedway), complete with two previously unreleased "B-sides". You can download it at our Bandcamp page: In Your Heart
Also check out the video, where we break our longstanding "no band members in music videos" policy:
Last but not least, work is well away on album number three, watch this space for further developments.
To celebrate album release day, I once again joined host Jeffrey Thames on Sound Awake on KPFT, chatting about the album and playing an acoustic version of Starsong. You can press play below to hear (skip forward to just after 13:00 to hear Starsong).
