Chris Walla signs The Lonely Forest

The Lonely Forest are the first band to sign to Chris Walla’s new label Trans, an imprint on Atlantic. “I’ve been lucky enough to make records with tons of phenomenal bands, and I’ve considered [starting a label] a number of different times,” Walla says. “I don’t know—is it oversimplified to say it’s them and it just makes sense? This wouldn’t be happening if it weren’t for the Lonely Forest. They’re a phenomenal band. I’ve been following my nose for so many years, doing the things that felt like the right thing to do. And this time the answer was yes.”

I've seen a lot of amazing things come from Chris Walla, and I trust his instinct on this one. After listening to a couple of their songs on Myspace I am really excited about this partnership and I think it's going to lead to great things on both sides. Check out their song We Sing In Time below and catch a few more on their Myspace page.
