Jack Endino: Screaming Trees NOT dead yet.
The Screaming Trees were believed to have broken up, having not released anything since their '96 album Dust, and not being signed to any label. This belief was shared by Jack Endino, who was told by Trees drummer Barrett Martin that it was looking very unlikely that they (Screaming Trees) would do anything again.

triple cycle theory then got this e-mail from Jack:

guess what, I was wrong. just spoke to Barrett in LA and he says they
just recorded a new demo and are looking for a new deal. surprised
the hell out of me.

No word on when a contract will be signed or an album released, but at least we know they're still around.

Release date for Rockfords album moved up.
The self-titled debut album from the Rockfords, a band made up of ex-Hammerbox singer Carrie Akre, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, the Friel brothers Chris and Rick (Shadow, Goodness), and Danny Newcomb (also of Shadow and Goodness) has been moved up to February 1, 2000.
