Fuzz-science fiction rockers SKRAECKOEDLAN are prepared for the international release of their debut album “Äppelträdet” (The Apple Tree) on 12th of October. Since its initial release 2011 in Sweden, “Äppelträdet” has been a gem hard to find. When the album was first released it reignited and marked the start of the modern Swedish stoner scene. Now, the record will be released through The Sign Records on CD and vinyl with world wide distribution.
Originally recorded in 2010 at Truckfighters’ Studio Bombshelter, “Äppelträdet” will once again see the light of day this fall, when it returns as a 180g transparent green vinyl housed in a single sleeve cover with updated artwork. A CD version with the original artwork will also be available, both versions featuring the ten seeds that grow to be the Apple Tree.
Also emerging anew are SKRAECKOEDLAN themselves. While still singing in their native tongue, telling stories about mythological beings and cosmic wonders, and having just come out of hiatus, the band recently made the transition from quartet to trio. The as of now three-piece shares the following words concerning the reprint:
“The reissue of ‘Äppelträdet’ is, in a somewhat allegorical sense, a celebration of what has been and to a certain extent of what still is, but it also serves as a kind of bridge to what will be. These are our roots and they grow deep.”
