the lonely forest

Anacortes, WA based rock band The Lonely Forest are excited to announce they will release their new album Adding Up the Wasted Hours on October 8 via Trans / Chop Shop Records. Adding Up the Wasted Hours was recorded by Death Cab For Cutiemember Chris Walla. The album includes 11 new songs, including the track “Warm/Happy” which you can download free at the link below. Said the band of the first new song they’ve released in a few years, “Warm/Happy, lyrically, is a self-assuring song. I think artists can have a hard time connecting with people outside of their art…which is where the chorus line “We hate to relate so we synthesize, we’re warm and happy” comes from. Our music is what bridges that gap and helps us communicate.”

The group is also pleased to announce a Fall headline tour in support of the release beginning on Oct 10 in Nampa, ID; hitting numerous markets through November including Los Angeles, New York City, and more. Having spent most of 2011 and 2012 on the road, including outings with Death Cab For Cutie, The Joy Formidable, Two Door Cinema Club and Minus the Bear as well as a show-stopping set at Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival, which saw them playing to thousands of people on the festival’s main stage, this will be the band’s first proper headlining tour. For the band’s full itinerary, please see below.

From the outset The Lonely Forest -singer/guitarist/keyboardist John Van Deusen, guitarist Tony Ruland, drummer Braydn Krueger, and bassist Eric Sturgeon- has been about inclusion. In 2005, a raucous garage session inspired the guys (Braydn, Tony, and Eric) to join forces with Van Deusen’s piano-pop. As grows their fanbase, The Lonely Forest’s music is continually expanding and evolving. At its core, the music features Van Deusen’s soaring vocals and keyboard melodies wrapped tightly around Ruland’s expansive guitar anchored by a heavy yet nimble rhythm section.
