IF THESE TREES COULD TALK – Exclusive “Earth Crawler” In-Studio Playthrough

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. To kick it off, they’re releasing this exclusive to Gear Gods playthrough of their haunting song “Earth Crawler”.

Starting off in August in NY, the trek also features Driftoff, Spotlights, and Alexander Turnquist as support. See below for all dates!

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). Purchase The Bones of a Dying World in various formats here.

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
