Giving Tree Band To Release “Vacilador” October 2nd + Free Download

Crooked Creek Records and The Giving Tree Band are proud to announce the October 2nd release of Vacilador, the Chicago area seven-piece’s fourth full-length studio album. It has been a busy spring and summer for the boys as they found themselves criss-crossing the country to play many a folk and rock festival, and toured extensively in June and July with Joe Purdy. They also won the attention of the Grateful Dead’s management, as well as Dead fans across the country with their cover of “Brown Eyed Woman.” Their performance video for the cover was impressive enough to lead The Dead’s management to play it before an April 19th mass screening of the ’89 Grateful Dead concert at Alpine Valley at over 550 movie theatres nation wide. The Giving Tree Band will tour throughout the rest of August, September, and October in the lead up to the album’s release. (Upcoming tour dates below. More TBA soon.)

For an early preview of what’s to come on the album Giving Tree Band fans can stream and download the first single for free at American Songwriter Magazine

Apart from their sound, The Giving Tree Band also turns heads with their unique approach to rock and roll – one that is healthy and earth conscious. All the members of the GTB have embraced a vegan lifestyle, and the band is also widely considered to be one of the “greenest” bands around, and are known for extraordinary environmental stewardship which includes custom instruments made from naturally fallen trees and reclaimed woods, biodiesel tours, affinity for biking and camping, 100% recycled packaging of all CD’s, carbon neutral album production, and donating as much as 50% of sales to eco-friendly charities.
