Winnipeg rock band, The Watchmen have announced that they are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their platinum certified sophomore album ‘In The Trees’. The band announced that the September 16th release of a two disc deluxe edition of the album will be available!
The first disc will include ‘In The Trees’ in its remastered form, and also includes some never-before-heard demos of album outtakes. Disc two will include glimpses from the band’s beginning with demos from the fall of 1993 when Pete Loewen was still on bass as well as the first demo sessions following the recruitment of new bassist Tizzard.
But that’s not all, in support of the release, The Watchmen have also released some live dates, including a double shot at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto September 18th and 19th, Mavericks in Ottawa September 20th and more throughout 2014.
On top of all this exciting news, fans would also be on the lookout for “Uncovered: The Story of The Watchmen” this September. This is Toronto-based author Vanessa Azzoli’s writing debut (Eternal Cavalier Press), which combines extensive research and unfettered access to the band to tell the story of The Watchmen’s twenty-plus years on the road – captivating and genuine.
