Tree Of Sores return to the fray, with their 2nd release, A Cry Of Despair, which follows on from their debut self-titled EP.

Hailing from Leeds, the band deal in epic, dark and ambient soundscapes moving from moments of sombre refelection to unrelenting nightmare. Forgoing the traditional verse/chorus/verse format, Tree Of Sores have opted for 1 song that weighs in at 28 minutes long, and features around 6 or 7 riffs or movements. For fans of Neurosis, Pelican and Wolves In The Throne Room.

Limited to 250 copies, this CD comes in a clear sleeve with a double-sided print that showcases the art of Black Uroborus. It is also available as pay-what-you-want download through Bandcamp, and the traditional digital outlets like Spotify, iTunes and Amazon.

Recorded and produced by Ross Halden at Ghost Town Studios (Rolo Tomassi, Castrovalva, Hawk Eyes), Leeds
Mastered by Jonny Teanby at Fragment Mastering
Main artwork and layout by Black Uroborus
Reverse background by Richard Thomas
Logo on reverse by Tony Shephard


Air on fire
Fall from the sky
Burning horizon
Steel hits the ground
Humanity perish
Thunder abound
Ground cracks open
Swallowing remains
Dancing on rooftops
Darkness prevails
