Continuing their steady climb to prominence from modest Northwest roots, The Lonely Forest unveils its Trans Records label debut Arrows, on March 22. The album release follows a year filled with recording, touring and the release of the band’s eponymous digital-only EP.
Trans Records is the new label headed by Chris Walla, guitarist and producer for Grammy-nominated rock band Death Cab for Cutie, who found The Lonely Forest’s music so compelling he made the band his label’s very first signing. Walla produced and engineered Arrows at Sound City studio in Los Angeles, Tiny Telephone in San Francisco and his own, Portland-based studio, Alberta Court. He also mixed three tracks–“Be Everything,” “Turn Off This Song And Go Outside” and “I Don’t Want To Live There.” The balance of the album was mixed by John Goodmanson (Girls, Nada Surf, Weezer).
