Tea Leaf Green: New Album, National Tour

TEA LEAF GREEN’S NEW ALBUM IN THE WAKE
TO BE RELEASED ON MAY 14

San Francisco’s Tea Leaf Green return with their most personal collection yet of brawny but hooky classic rock ’n’ roll. In the Wake, out May 14, 2013 on Greenhouse Records, distributed by Thirty Tigers, will be followed by a national tour of major U.S. cities, which will include album performances in its entirety.

After suffering personal tragedy and bonding together creatively — allowing for each member to meaningfully contribute to the songwriting process — TLG produced a career-defining album. In the Wake has all the hallmarks of their acclaimed 17-year body of work, but it’s imbued with an emotionally rich cathartic power.

More so than anything in their earlier catalog, In the Wake presents what the considerable collective talent in Tea Leaf Green is capable of, letting solo spotlights dim in order to illuminate the greater being that emerges when the members’ arms are linked.

“One goal with this album was to focus not on who was playing what but to do everything we could to simply make the best songs and the best record,” says Cochrane McMillan. “It’s not all the individual’s ego. It’s Tea Leaf Green’s ego. We tried to tap into something larger. That’s a beautiful, poetic thing to say, but practically we all still have egos and butt heads, but what came out of this process was something we all really and truly could agree upon. We really did move as one large school of fish.”
