Jade Tree Records Signs The Spirit of the Beehive

BrooklynVegan Shares Music Video for “You Are Arrived”

Jade Tree Records is excited to welcome Philadelphia’s The Spirit of the Beehive to their roster, who will head into the studio in early 2016 to record their debut LP for Jade Tree.  BrooklynVegan announced the signing today alongside the premiere of a music video for their song “You Are Arrived (But You’ve Been Cheated)” from their latest EP, which shares the same title. More comparable to a well-crafted mixtape of moments in time than a product of polished regurgitation, the EP as well as their self-titled debut LP were both co-released by Ice Age Records and Ranch Records.

Watch “You Are Arrived (But You’ve Been Cheated)”
Offering a wide sonic palette within every song, The Spirit of the Beehive has created pop rock rhythms and sweet melodies that support dolefully sung detachment and are paired with crushingly heavy noise rock, crafted perfectly to necessitate repeat listens. The band often alters their songs when performing live to fit the personal experience of the show itself; such obsession with mood has proven to be one of their most prevalent strengths.Stereogum affirmed, “The Spirit Of The Beehive’s self-titled debut is the kind of murky, densely layered record that is richly rewarding on repeat listens, and one that deserves a much wider audience than it has right now.”

The Summer of 2015 saw the band ambitiously crossing the United States with fellow vibe titans Amanda X. They will embark on a tour that begins today in support of The Hotelier, Oso Oso & Runaway Brother with a stop in Gainesville at Fest 14 (all tour dates below).

Current members are Zack Schwartz (guitar and vocals), Pat Conaboy (drums), Justin Fox (guitar and keyboard), Tim Jordan (guitar), and Rivka Ravede (bass and vocals).
