It’s one thing for a band to get picked up by a label. It’s quite another, however, to be that label’s first band. The Lonely Forest, an indie-rock quartet from Anacortes, Wash., has that distinct honor when picked up by Trans, the new imprint label headed by Death Cab For Cutie guitarist Chris Walla. Their debut release for the label, The Lonely Forest EP, is a sneak peek at the full length (Aarows) due in early 2011. Gearing up for long fall tour runs with Margot & The Nuclear So & So’s and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, the band chats about Aarows‘ progress, being on the new label and where they find inspiration for their writing.
Give us an update on how Aarows is coming along.
Tony Ruland: Arrows is in the final mixing stages and soon to be mastered.
A lot of indie bands are scared off by labels these days – but you guys seem to be on quite an artist friendly one. Is it somewhat consoling to know that your label is run by a musician, and a successful one, at that?
TR: Absolutely! We love and trust Chris fully. We’re very lucky to be on such a unique label. Read more about Q&A with The Lonely Forest; Playing Black Cat, October 1 and The Drunken Unicorn, October 9 …
