Lost In The Trees Announce SXSW Performances

The critically heralded musical collective Lost In The Trees will be appearing at the renowned South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas next week. The group will be playing in support of their much anticipated new album titled A Church That Fits Our Needs which is released on March 20th via Anti-.

The new record is an ambitious work inspired by loss and transformation. In the summer of 2009, the group's writer, composer and singer, Ari Picker, lost his artist mother when she took her own life. Picker has transformed the event into an evocative and moving musical tribute. Far from being a somber affair, the classically trained composer has utilized rhythm as its own emotional language, never losing the propulsive vitality of great rock and roll.

In addition to their appearances at SXSW, the band will playing a special performance at All Tomorrow's Parties UK by special invitation of Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum. The group will then head across North America.

"The band has a stage presence that is absolutely mesmerizing while boasting a catalog of songs that are both heart wrenching and beautiful." - Paste Magazine
