Anacortes indie-pop outfit The Lonely Forest has officially signed with Chris Walla's Trans, his new imprint label with Atlantic Records, a deal that's been making its way through the rumor mills for a couple months now. Exciting? Very. Surprising? Nope. I've been waiting for this band to get a record deal since I first saw the wunderkind John Van Deusen play at a Bellingham coffeehouse five years ago. Congrats, finally!
Steven Dewall The Lonely Forest will play at Neumo's on March 2 in support of We Were Promised Jetpacks.
