» Born into the Waves
Angeregt durch Konzertreisen nach Rumänien, Litauen, Japan und in die Ukraine in den letzten Jahren, erwuchs das Material des Albums ‘BORN INTO THE WAVES‘ aus vier Kompositionen des Gitarristen Justin Jones, die durch Liebeslieder aus aller Welt inspiriert waren.
Nach den erfolgreichen Veröffentlichungen ‘(Listen for) The Rag and Bone Man‘ (2007) und ‘Hunter not the Hunted‘ (2012) versprüht ‘BORN INTO THE WAVES‘ einen neuen, optimistischeren Geist und ermöglicht dem Sänger Simon Huw Jones eine größere Freiheit bei der Gestaltung seiner Texte:
"Das Album enthält keine traditionellen Liebeslieder, aber das Thema der Liebe als ein äußerst kraftvolles Gefühl steht im Zentrum des Albums und zieht sich wie ein roter Faden durch die Songs – hell strahlend und düster, belebend und zerstörerisch. Unsere Reisen und das jeweilige Gespür für die verschiedenen Orte waren hilfreich, die große Vielfalt des Themas ‚Liebe‘ intensiver zu ergründen, insbesondere als Gegenkraft zu einem Gefühl wie Hass."
Auch im 35. Jahr ihres Bestehens erfinden sich And Also The Trees wieder einmal neu und betreten auch bei anderen Projekten neue kreative Wege. 2015 arbeitete Justin Jones beispielsweise mit Marc Almond auf dessen Album ‘The Dancing Marquis‘ zusammen. Schlagzeuger Paul Hill trat erst kürzlich mit dem international einflussreichen deutschen Multimediakünstler John Bock in London auf. Simon Huw Jones arbeitete mit dem französischen Komponisten Olivier Mellano zusammen und steuerte den Gesang zu der ‚13 Guitars‘-Version einer Auftragsarbeit für das ‚Orchestre symphonique de Bretagne‘ bei. Darüber hinaus wird bald das zweite Album seines gemeinsamen Projektes mit Bernard Trontin von den Young Gods unter dem Bandnamen November erscheinen. Auf ‘BORN INTO THE WAVES‘ ist außerdem Adam Sherry als Gastsänger zu hören, der mit seiner Band A Dead Forest Index bereits gemeinsam mit den Savages und Chelsea Wolfe auf Tour war.
Das Album cover "Running with the wolves" entstammt der in Schottland lebenden niederländischen Folk-Künstlerin Anouk de Groot.

» Thank you Ian!
"Extraordinarily talented bassist Ian Jenkins, who joined AATT in 2004 was unable to play at the festival in Leiria due to an operation on a troublesome shoulder. He is now recovering but has decided that because of this injury and for other personal reasons he will not continue working with the band in the future. He has been amazing and of course we all wish him well for the future...."
Justin, Simon, Paul and Emer
Thank you for 11 'treefull great years.
All the best to you and fast & full recovery!
Meanwhile - work on the new album continues… being aiming for a Feb/March 2016 release with Ian already recorded most of the bass.

» 35th Anniversary Concert London
To celebrate their 35th anniversary And Also The Trees will perform a special concert in
The Garage, London on Fr. 24.04.2015
(Support: The Cesarians)
You can buy tickets here.
"This is probably our first band photo taken in 1979, before we had a name. We decided to call ourselves 'And also the trees' later that year but we have always considered our official formation date as January 12th 1980 when we played live for the first time at The Greig hall in Alcester, Warwickshire. So that makes this year our 35th and although we don't want to make a big deal out of it…to mark the event we have organized a few concerts where we will play a special set of songs drawn from throughout our history, starting at The Garage in London on April 24th and followed by the two shows in Tokyo in May."

» Brothers of the Trees
Justin and Simon Huw Jones have accepted an invitation to play at the intimate, underground venue - Studio 603 in Vevey, Switzerland on Sunday December 15th. It was the first time they have played together as a duo. Justin did play his electric guitar and the set was based around 'And also the trees' Songs including a new song and song versions. It was a unique experience to 40 people (sold out) - maybe a complete one off, or maybe the beginning of a new chapter for the 'Brothers of the trees'.
