Scattered Trees: New Album and Summer TourPosted by Kellielizabeth Caceres-Leighton
The Chicago’s local Scattered Trees is a band that started in 2003, disbanded a few years later due to its members being drawn to different parts of the country and then recently came back together after tragedy hit close to home in the life of frontman Nathan Eiesland. Dedicating their newest album Sympathy, to his recently deceased father, Eiesland definitely proves that he’s wearing his heart on his sleeve, a bold move that makes most great artists stand out from the rest. This album is more than moving and with the combination of the deeply haunting compassionate lyrics and the melancholic rhythms, it seems to express more honest emotion than I have seen in years.
Their latest single “Four Days Straight” which is available for download here on SSG,has proved to have nothing but great reviews everywhere. The official music video for the song (which was chosen from four different videos, all recorded by New York student Filmmakers who were casted by Roll Call Records), recently released last month and has helped to spark interest in new fans as well as promote ticket sales for their first ever US tour. Among their several stops along the United States, Scattered Trees promises to hit two Northwest Locations: The Sunset Tavern in Seattle 7/30 and Portland’s Douglas Fir Lounge the following day 7/31. Be sure to catch this band next month and support them by viewing their wonderfully directed videos featured on YouTube including recently released Star Wars themed one, and buying tickets to tour with the band Alternate Routes, if of course you are 21+ and over.
