The Turtles have been working hard on a much anticipated new album in the northwoods of Minnesota, and just set out on a 34-city tour.  The Troubadour’s Road will be sure to feature a song off the new record when it is available.  Until then, check out their tour dates, and hit up a live-show.  It is just one of those things in life that needs to be experienced, and as you leave the venue, you will understand how you were just Trampled By Turtles.

These words find their place in the song, “Where Is My Mind,”

“With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there’s nothing in it
And you’ll ask yourself

Where is my mind

Way out in the water
See it swimmin’

I was swimmin’ in the Caribbean
Animals were hiding behind the rocks
Except the little fish
But they told me, he swears
Tryin’ to talk to me, coy koi.…”
