With direct collaboration with Chris Walla of Death Cab for Cutie, they have solidified themselves as indie up-and-comers of the Upper Northwest reminiscent of Bleed American era Jimmy Eat World that NPR dubbed as having “a sound that’s both playful and emotionally gripping.”
The Lonely Forest
 
“For The Lonely Forest, the inspiration behind their new album, Adding Up The Wasted Hours, out now on Chop Shop Records, initially came from paintings commissioned by the band. After touring extensively behind their 2011 album Arrows with bands Death Cab For Cutie and Minus the Bear, the Washington State indie rock band returned home and began writing songs with a specific intention in mind. “We had the paintings for the album art done before we wrote everything so we were playing off the artwork a lot,” Tony says. “We wanted it all to be a complete piece. On the last record we purposely used broad strokes, and on this record we purposely mixed that all up.”

The fourpiece, who initially formed back in 2005 during a garage session, wrote 26 songs during the writing process, all playing off the idea of time wasted – for better or worse. After the release of Arrows, which earned the No. 14 slot on Amazon’s “Best Albums of 2011” and was featured heavily on NPR, The Lonely Forest left major label Atlantic Records, leaving them in limbo when it came to recording a follow-up album. The band, who feel that the new disc is largely a breakup album, were also focused on the idea of squandered time in their own lives, whether on tour or in relationships.”
