2000 Trees 2015: Alkaline Trio to headline


2000 Trees 2015

So there you have it! Illinois punk rock legends Alkaline Trio will headline the Mainstage on Saturday night, closing what looks to be another spectacular few days at Upcote Farm on the outskirts of Cheltenham.

Last night searching Alkaline Trio and 2000 Trees on twitter returned one solitary result, I don’t know if this guy had simply guessed and had no idea he was right or… well the alternative doesn’t bear mentioning!

It’s a bit of a different story now! Tickets will be sold out crazy soon, their fanbase is as dedicated as any out there and with good cause. They haven’t been able to release an album without it being declared a classic of whichever genre they’ve chosen to fit in at that moment.

During the middle part of their career, they did go a bit pop punk, not that there’s anything wrong with that but those fans of their original output were rewarded with albums harking back to their roots once the new decade hit.

You can probably be assured that this will be a whirlwind tour of their 19 year & 8 album career as they’re not here promoting a new album they just want a place at the best party of the year like everyone else. However, it should also be noted at the end of last year they played their two most highly revered albums Crimson & Good Mourning BACK TO BACK. Which, I mean… I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up but just- imagine that.

I mean I’ve put some of their best songs down the bottom for you to check out but I haven’t even mentioned Private Eye or Stupid Kid I mean, if you don’t know this band you’re in for a hell of a ride and if you do you’re going to get some of your wildest dreams realised this summer.
