Indie Rock to Come to UW
August 23, 2011 — Chicago-based indie rock band Scattered Trees will perform a free concert at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 31, in the University of Wyoming Union Ballroom.
"Sympathy," the band's newest album, is a deeply personal and focused collection of songs that explore the intimacies of love and loss. After the tragic passing of his father, lead singer Nate Eiesland picked up his guitar and began penning songs dedicated to the memory of his father. Those songs later became tracks on Scattered Trees' newest album.
"I think the clarity of the record was forced upon me by the gravity of the situation and the subject matter," Eiesland said. "I don't think there was any way I could have written something off subject as far as the theme of the record is concerned."
