So. In case you have not yet noticed, we are releasing a record on July 29th. It’s the first-ever official Doomtree Crew record, eight years in the making. It’s pretty good, too. Scratch that; it’s pretty really good. You can already preorder it directly from the Doomtree store, which guarantees that you’ll receive it on (or before) the 29th. Hells yeah. We are … Read More
This weekend Doomtree will be playing a mega-set at Grand Old Day in St. Paul. We’ll be at the Onion Stage from 3:15 to 5:00, so you’ll probably hear Traveling Dunk Tank three or four times. There aren’t many opportunities to see Doomtree with your mom, your dog, and your baby, so I’d recommend strapping on the fanny pack and hitting … Read More
Despite our continued insistence that this mp3 crap is merely a fad, we have relented and are pleased to announce that Doomtree False Hopes is now available from itunes (among other places). Now when you only want one DTR song you won’t have to wait for us to mail you a tiny CD. Amazing. We’ll continue to make new releases and old stuff … Read More
What up though. We’re keeping on with the myspace new/rare/bad innundation. It’s been fun, and should continue to be until we’re left with only the bad. Despite what you think, you’re not going to want to hear the bad about as much as you don’t want to view the footage of your own conception (which we will also not upload out … Read More
Yesterday marked the release the brand new album by our homies-for-life the Plastic Constellations. It’s a masterpiece, brother. Cop it now. We couldn’t be more excited to help these dudes celebrate their new baby and impending collapse this Saturday at First Avenue. The whole damn Doomtree crew will bring the ruckus, with additional ruckus to be brought by the Millionth Word (MK Larada’s … Read More
Tonight (Friday) the one and only KRS-ONE hits Minneapolis for a show at Trocaderos. The opening acts are nothing to shake a stick at either: Kanser, Muja, Truthmaze, B-Girl All Stars and more. But we’re particularly pleased to inform you that our own Dessa has teamed up with Maria Isa, Sha Cage and Indigo to form First Ladies of the Word, an … Read More
Over the coming weeks, Doomtree will start occasionally putting new, unreleased, and extremely rare songs on our myspace page for limited periods of time. Could be for a day, could be for an hour. Who knows? (We do.) And we’re only occasionally going to announce it. So it’s pretty much up to you; if you want it, come and get it.

In case we hadn’t mentioned it, SXSW was dope. And what exactly was the dopest part? Body shots with Michael Stipe? Kelsey Grammer quietly singing the outro to Frasier over and over by himself at a hotel lobby piano? No and no. I think it’s safe to say that cooling out with Fab 5 Freddy was proooobably the highlight. Check it.
