PIST to support Elephant Tree in London

February 19, 2020

Just announced: our lads PIST will be special guests to Elephant Tree at the latter's album launch show at Oslo in Hackney on 24th April.

We are rather fond of Elephant Tree here at APF Records. Jack and Pete from that band provide vocals on PIST's "Strangle The Sun", which appears on the album Hailz - available to buy in our shop.

Elephant Tree are signed to Holy Roar Records, who we love as well. ET's new album Habits is stunning (yep... we've heard it). It's out in April and available to pre-order from https://elephanttreeband.bandcamp.com/
