Screaming Trees Dig Up Unreleased Grunge Rock Songs


Screaming Trees co-founder launches record label

With all the hoopla surrounding Nirvana’s 20th anniversary of, Nevermind, it should come as no surprise that other grunge rock stars are getting some extra attention. Now, Van Conner, co-founder of ‘80s and ‘90s alternative rock band Screaming Trees, and VALIS are launching a new record label, Strange Earth Records, which has partnered with the American wing of Germany’s Finetunes Digital Media Services.

The label will serve as “a hub for independent bands that have dedicated their lives to making great music,” according to a release, and feature “access to distribution for independent or unsigned bands.” Releases will encompass singles, EPs and full-length records and videos that will be available via all the major online music shops, plus the label has plans for vinyl releases and distribution. New music as well as never-before-heard tunes from yesterday will be featured.

Strange Earth Records will release music from Microdot Gnome on Oct. 21. Microdot Gnome, of course, features Screaming Trees co-founder, guitarist and songwriter Gary Lee Conner, and Van’s brother. Other upcoming releases include tracks from The Legend of Bigfoot, Vaporland and, yes, Screaming Trees’, Bitter Dregs, the latter featuring previously unreleased tracks.
