Here’s a concert tour announcement for a band that I will admit I am not too up on but as you know it’s impossible to be on point about every single band that is currently active. So please check out the press copy beneath the poster below.
The Press Release:
If These Trees Could Talk announces USA headlining tour with Driftoff, Spotlights, Alexander Turnquist; launches official/play-through video for “Earthcrawler” via GearGods.net. Instrumental post-rock outfit If These Trees Could Talk has announced a USA headlining tour in support of their new album, The Bones of a Dying World! Kicking off in August in NY. See below for all dates! Before the tour, If These Trees Could Talk will also play two special album release shows for The Bones of a Dying World in their home-state of Ohio; see below for details.
In anticipation of their upcoming performances, If These Trees Could Talk has launched a new official/play-through video for “Earthcrawler”, taken from The Bones of a Dying World.

Recorded over the past year at NE Meadow Studios in Akron, OH, The Bones of a Dying World was once again produced and engineered by the band’s own Zack Kelly (drums). Mixing duties were handled by Zack Kelly and Freddie DeMarco while the final master was completed by Alan Douches at West West Side Music. For the album artwork, If These Trees Could Talk called upon long-time designer Charlie Wagers, who worked with the band on their past two releases – Above the Earth, Below the Sky (2009) and Red Forest (2012). After four years of fine-tuning these audio and visual components, the quintet has now unleashed their Metal Blade Records debut upon the music world, with critics declaring: “the music If These Trees Could Talk are putting out now is some of the finest they’ve ever written” (MetalSucks.net).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t know about you readers but I am going to be sinking my teeth into this new album to see what the band is all about. I’ve said this to the readership on numerous occasions and honestly, it’s been such a statement that I’ve lost count. There is no time like the present to listen to a new and potentially exciting Metal band that you have never given a chance to before. Remember that you can do this while easily remaining loyal to the happenings in the Slayer camp or without missing a single tour that Five Finger Death Punch might be headlining. So what do you folks think about this tour announcement? Have you beaten me to the punch and are already aware about this group? If so please do tell. I’ll be looking forward to the comments that you leave below.
