The Saddest Landscape will be heading into the studio this weekend to begin work on its first full-length record since 2003. The band is currently weighing its label options but the record should see a late Summer / early Fall 2010 release.
You might not know who The Saddest Landscape is but you should. Originally formed in 2002, the Boston-based trio quickly made a name for itself in the screamo underground with multiple releases and splits with greats like The Pine and Funeral Diner.
After being dormant for 2006 and 2007, the band reconvened to play a few European shows in 2008, which would eventually lead to The Saddest Landscape’s reemergence in 2009 and the band’s first new release since 2005, a split 7″ with Trophy Scars on Bear Records. Also of note, in the Winter of 09 the band released a 2xLP vinyl discography, All Is Apologized For. All Is Forgiven., on its own Cover Your Heart Records.
The Saddest Landscape is also excited to announce Just Say No! Records will be releasing a split 9″ (yes, 9″!) with the great Pianos Become The Teeth this summer. The band will contribute songs to “Connections Vol II” as well, which is an international compilation from Sweden’s Moment of Collapse featuring six bands from six different countries.
And if that wasn’t enough, The Saddest Landscape will be heading back to Europe in June. Among the dates to be announced, the band will be playing the legendary Cry Me A River Festival in Germany.
