WR224: Hearing Trees

...so for whatever reason, everyone is releasing new albums in April and May. In order to accommodate all of the great local bands who have been getting in touch to talk about their new releases, we've had to do some unconventional interviews, including this one, with Hearing Trees bassist Seamus Hamilton-Pattison. It's a conversation from a coffee shop inside a bookstore. Hearing Trees will be releasing their new three-song EP, Puppets, on April 12 at The Park Theatre.

Dave talks about his experiences (as a native dude) with racism, punk rock longevity and more! ...
