We highly suggest being barefoot for Tree Blood's fall tour. The band is heading west in September and given “Toe Cancer”'s refrain of “this little piggy went all the way home”, a barefoot romp session of toe-counting and wiggling should happen in each living room the band graces.
Tree Blood is Simon Brooks and Colin Wilkinson, two pop punkers from Minneapolis. The duo recorded its self-titled debut EP for MJ MJ Records in one sweeping take of unfiltered madness. Are they channeling ancient haunts of beer-fueld, basement recording sessions a, la The 'Mats' Hootenanny? Hell to the fucking, yeah! Though Tree Blood is cranked up considerably higher and pissier, like a frost bitten Titus Andronicus. This is the band that can pull into Anywhere, USA, plug in and send teenagers (and journos in the twilight of their 20s) into a hormonal frenzy of sweat and bliss, aka our new favorite band.
