The Billboard
The Lonely Forest is an indie rock band from Anacortes, Washington. From the outset The Lonely Forest —singer/guitarist/keyboardist John Van Deusen, guitarist Tony Ruland, drummer Braydn Krueger, and bassist Eric Sturgeon— has been about inclusion. At its core, the music features Van Deusen’s soaring vocals and keyboard melodies wrapped tightly around Ruland’s expansive guitar anchored by a heavy yet nimble rhythm section. The contrast of brilliant pop songs featuring lyrics about spiritual longing wedded to an almost prog-rock sensibility appeals to a broad swath of listeners, from wide-eyed teenagers to jaded indie scenesters. Their first EP was released in September 2006. Regicide was released as a six track EP that was produced by Jack Endino of Seattle. Due to stomach ulcers, Ruland left the band shortly after the release of the EP in late 2006. Instead of adding a new guitarist, the band decided to focus on the driving piano of Van Deusen. The band's first full length album, Nuclear Winter, was released in August, 2007 to great acclaim in the Pacific Northwest. Ruland rejoined and the band sometime in 2008 after a full recovery. Not too much later the quartet released "We Sing The Body Electric!" on April 21, 2009. After expressing interest in the band, Chris Walla of Death Cab for Cutie released that The Lonely Forest was the first band to be signed to his new label, Trans.
