THE LONELY FOREST

with: Kisses, Summer Camp, The Tellers
THE LONELY FOREST is a band on the rise. Long regarded as an up-and-comer in the Pacific Northwest, the band recently collaborated with Death Cab For Cutie guitarist/producer Chris Walla to take the anthemic, poppy earnestness of Jimmy Eat World and transform it into a sound that's both playful and emotionally gripping. Hailing from the small town of Anacortes, Washington - singer/guitarist/keyboardist John Van Deusen, guitarist Tony Ruland, drummer Braydn Krueger and bassist Eric Sturgeon - are set to release their newest album Arrows on March 22 via Trans Records - Chris Walla’s newest imprint.
"The Lonely Forest proves to me," says Walla, "In a time full of throwbacks and references and meta-references, that nothing can beat a focused, bulletproof guitar rock band with amazing songs. I didn't start a label for nothing."
