New Release & Tour: The Handsome Family – Through The Trees / Weightless Again

Back in 1998, The Handsome Family released one of the finest Americana records of all time, in the form of Through The Trees. Since then, the husband and wife duo of Brett and Rennie Sparks have continued to provide sensational pieces of work, from Singing Bones – which featured what would become the hugely-popular True Detective title theme, Far From Any Road – to 2016’s glorious record Unseen

Now, the duo have announced a special 20th Anniversary edition of Through The Trees, released on 9th March. The release will include a sky blue-coloured vinyl, alongside an exclusive Invisible Trees bonus CD, comprising of 15 tracks of “out-takes, live performances and bickering”

To celebrate the release, The Handsome Family have unveiled a new video for their triumphant track, Weightless Again…

The duo are also set to play the entirety of Through The Trees on their forthcoming tour…
