The Handsome Family Share New Video For Weightless Again, Ahead of Their Through The Trees 20th Anniversary Tour

Thursday, 22nd February 2018

The Handsome Family have created a rather wonderful new video for their absolute classic track, Weightless Again. Rennie spoke to Folk Radio to explain why:"For the twentieth Anniversary of Through the Trees I made a video of the first song on the record "Weightless Again". Maybe our most American song: it's about suicide, drug addiction, deforestation and Moby Dick as well as the great angst that only comes from the lack of real cream for coffee.  This video features all of the great musicians now playing with us live as well as some soft-shoe dance moves that Brett has been working on for twenty years. He’s either ready for the big top or the padded cell."On 9th March we'll be releasing a special anniversary edition of Through The Trees. It's presses on heavyweight blue vinyl and comes with a bonus 'Invisible Trees' CD, made up of Through The Trees era demos and live recordings. There are a handful left for sale through the Loose shop, or else we suggest you pick one up from your local record shop, or even better, buy one direct from the band on their Through The Trees Anniversary tour, which kick off next week.
