Arbouretum Announce US Winter Tour With Endless Boogie

Arbouretum are thrilled to announce their 2011 Winter tour with fellow indie rock guitar heros, Endless Boogie. They will start out celebrating the release of their epic new LP The Gathering in their hometown of Baltimore, Maryland on February 13th. From there, they will be traveling to the west coast to in support of their highly anticipated new new album. Don't worry east coast, they will be there soon!

The Gathering has garnered early support from Pitchfork, NPR, The Fader, The NME and Stereogum. In November, Arbouretum released new album details and a live video for "When Delivery Comes".  While Pitchfork broke the news of the new LP and premiered the video, both The Fader and NPR picked up the news, posted the new acoustic video, and set the tone for this truly amazing album.
In December, Stereogum premiered their debut single, “Destroying To Save” and raved about its “gorgeous guitar sound and stately vintage psych pacing.” And on the other side of the pond, UK's The NME and premiered the single in their Top 10 Daily Download.
From the truly poetic opener "The White Bird", to the amazing cover of The Highwaymen's "Highwayman", Arbouretum have really delivered a masterpiece of epic proportions. The "Song of the Nile" was a collaboration between Rob Wilson and lead singer/guitarist Dave Heumann; “the song talks about someone on a mythical hero quest who seems to go through all these scenarios quite by accident." The Gathering takes the listener on a journey filled with a plethora of imagery and narrative context lifted from the Gnostic myth of "The Song of The Pearl".


The Gathering, was to a large extent, inspired by The Red Book by Carl Jung, or more specifically, Jung’s pursuit of the inner images that led to the book’s writing. Dave Heumann has long been a fan of experiences that surpass comprehension and describe the numinous. The narrative of “losing one’s way and finding it again” resonated deeply and it was in this context that the songs that comprise The Gathering came to be.  The attention to detail in recording and in writing, in concert with the performance, result in the other-worldly experience of The Gathering.

Boogie Matrix Mechanism

Started in 2005, Boogie Matrix Mechanism released their debut album "Glass Candy" over Halloween 2006. They give the audience an eclectic mix of Jam psychedelia, hip hop, blues, reggae, funk n more. This seven piece band gives the audience not just funked out grooves or trippy space, but also some strong messages through the lyrics and entertaining opportunities through crowd participation.

bmmOut of Toledo, OH this jam band is bringing a positive vibe with an original mix of styles that few if any are doing today. Through a mutual friend, Brian Bell AKA 'Mainstream' and Bob Maltby, met in the fall of 2003. Immediately they started making music. Mainstream's innovative, often politically based, occasionally psychedelic induced lyrics mixed with Bob's funked out bass riffs along with some added drumming started a simple first band. However after the drummers exit from the band Brian and Bob started reevaluating the seriousness of their musical goals and moved from the trio format to create more of an acoustic sound with Bob playing rhythm guitar instead of bass. Looking for percussion/bass/whatever, in December 2004 Brian ran into an old friend Ben Durham whose band, Blind Sighted, had just broken up. His addition on bass along with his drummer Eric Lowden laid down a strong foundation for Boogie Matrix Mechanism. A short search for a keyboardist led to Jim Kahmann out of Toledo. Soon after came the addition of lead guitarist John Kuntz into the mix and finally, in November of 2005, Eric's close friend Aaron Armstrong was added in on percussion and the evolution of Boogie Matrix Mechanism continues........

Boogie Matrix independently released their first album "Glass Candy" on Halloween 2006 . Then independently released their second album "Animated Reality" in the spring of 2008 and are now playing shows around Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania. They are interested in expanding their range and playing in as many different places as possible. In the past three summers they have played festivals such as Columbia Gas Ribs by the River 2006 and 2007 in Promenade Park in downtown Toledo, Indiana Jam Bash 2006, The Chaffee Gathering 2007 and Shamy Bash 2007 and 2008, Hookahville 29, Rhythmfest 3 and Gratefulfest 9.
