New EP „Reverberations Of A Gloomy Summer“

We will release a new EP on July 1, 2022 as a follow-up to our 2021 album „Summergloom“, which is already clearly recognizable as a twin release by its title „Reverberations Of A Gloomy Summer“. The 5 songs of the EP were all created in the course of the „Summergloom“ sessions, but didn’t find a place on the album for various reasons – be it because they were stylistically a bit out of the ordinary or because they weren’t finished in time. So „Reverberations Of A Gloomy Summer“ sounds a bit more experimental, versatile and stylistically freer than the last album.

With the Portishead cover „Sour Times“ and the two original compositions „Nothing More To Worry About“ and „Song Of Compassion“, there are also three bonus tracks on the CD version, which were previously only available as digital releases. All three tracks had already been released as digital singles in the run-up to the album „Summergloom“ to bridge the waiting time for the record. For the CD version, which thus contains 8 tracks, the mix and mastering were also reworked once again. The CD is exclusively available in the Winter Solitude Shop as well as soon in our Bandcamp-Shop!

The CD release party will take place on 30.06.2022 at the Junction Bar Berlin. At this show we will also present our new line-up for the first time.

New line-up

The Halo Trees are finally four musicians again. We welcome Nora Nünning on violin and Gabriel Wohlfahrt on bass as new members of the band.
On June 30th you can see them live for the first time, because we will play that night at Junction Bar in Berlin.

The Halo Trees singer Sascha has recorded a solo album, which will be released on July 1. Mansions In The Sea is the name of the project and it stands for quiet folk music. The first single including video was just released:

The Halo Trees: „Wanderlust“ video clip & „Summergloom“ vinyl out now!

Like so many bands these days, we had to wait a bit longer for the vinyl delivery of their latest album. While the CD and digital release of „Summergloom“ was already in early October 2021, the vinyl release was delayed to February 4, 2022 due to raw material delivery problems. The vinyl version is now available in D/AT/CH via retailers and for the rest of the world it can be ordered from our Bandcamp store.

For the belated release, we also spend a new video clip. The light-footed indie rock track „Wanderlust“, which has already been described by numerous fans and media representatives as their personal highlight of the album, has been accompanied by a video shot on Ibiza, which shows Sascha on a partly surreal trip that lives up to the album title „Summergloom“. Enjoy!

„Summergloom“ vinyl now available!

The time has finally come. After we had to wait since last summer (the pressing plant couldn’t keep the delivery time), the „Summergloom“ LPs have arrived now. The pre-orders have been shipped in the meantime and you can order the vinyl edition of „Summergloom“ in our Winter Solitude shop and our Bandcamp store. From February 04, 2022 the vinyl version will be available in German-speaking countries also via retailers (from other countries it’s best to order via Bandcamp). By the way, on this date we will also release a video clip for the song „Wanderlust“.

In der aktuellen Ausgabe des MusiX Magazins findet Ihr auch einen Beitrag über The Halo Trees.
Zitat daraus: „Neben den warmen Vocals macht die intensive Indie-Instrumentierung die Scheibe so speziell, film-noir-cineastisch und irgendwie sphärisch.“
Das Magazin liegt an 2.500 Kartenvorverkaufsstellen und flächendeckend in allen Media-Markt-Filialen aus. Wer es einfacher haben möchte, kann das Mag auch online als E-Paper lesen.

Sehr zu empfehlen ist die aktuelle Ausgabe des Classic Rock Magazins, und das nicht nur, weil ein Interview, Rezensionen und CD-Track von einer Band, deren Beitrag Ihr just in diesem Moment lest, darin zu finden ist 😉 Gibt’s am Kiosk und im gut sortierten Zeitschriftenhandel in Deutschland!
