The group is also pleased to announce a Fall headline tour in support of the release beginning onOct 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 withDeath Cab For Cutie, The Joy Formidable, Two Door Cinema Club and Minus the Bearas 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.
The band's previous album, Arrows, received overwhelming acclaim following its release on Trans Records/Atlantic Records. NPR called it "one of the best and most honest slices of pop music around," and the accolades continue to come in from the likes of SPIN, New York Magazine, Nylon, Teen Vogue, Alternative Press, Paste, and was featured on several year-end lists including NPR, Amazon and more.
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.
