Avantdale Bowling Club 'TREES' Album Release Tour Announced

Avantdale Bowling Club 'TREES' Album Release Tour Announced

Chris Cudby / Wednesday 24th August, 2022 12:12PM

Winner of the Taite Music Prize for Avantdale Bowling Club's 2018 self-titled debut album, Tom Scott thrills fans of his all-star Aotearoa hip hop / jazz project with the announcement of forthcoming second album TREES. Releasing on 7th October, the iconic Avondale rapper / producer / director will be celebrating ABC's four-years-in-the-making studio record with a nationwide launch tour in November and early December. Scott opened up about the challenges of following the massive success of ABC's kaleidoscopic first album over on his project's website — read his full open letter HERE (excerpted below) and preorder the vinyl LP edition over on Bandcamp HERE...

"I don’t think the next album will take 4 years. It might take longer (lol). It might never come. I might never write another album. My pen’s been kinda liking it on the screen play paper. Maybe I’m done with this act of my life. I don’t know. But this album is definitely done. And it’s out soon. And we're out. I can’t wait to take this thing on the road. New arrangements. New ideas. New-Years shows. All of that. Can’t fucking wait. For the people that have had my back all these years, this is for you. I hope this one still surprises you. I can’t really describe it without giving too much away. It’s different from the last one. Don't expect the same thing. This one's simpler. I had my bro Christoph El Truento at the desk for this one. We started out trynna adding more to it. But we ended up trynna chip more off. We were trynna rebel from the last one. This one might be the most political thing I’ve ever written. But it’s not about politics, exactly. And it’s not as personal as the last one. Or maybe it’s the most personal. I don’t know. It’s a new one." — Tom Scott
