Cape Town, South Africa: crashing into our speakers like a ‘dozer in 2017 are the sounds of Treehouse Burning. We spoke with co-founding member Jesse Khun in January at the release of the Metalcore band’s debut single ‘Ledger’, and things have moved along swiftly since then; also with the assemblage of a full band for live shows coming soon. However, today’s focus falls on the latest single with ‘Overdose’, released via Ghost Killer Entertainment, and which is the title track to Treehouse Burning‘s forthcoming EP.
“We decided that this song should be the title-track to the EP as it will be looked back upon as the song which defined our sound. Me, Nathan and Richard all had important parts to play with writing and tweaking bits and pieces of it to get it to where we wanted it to be.” ~ Jesse Khun (guitar, Treehouse Burning)
Incidentally, the single also sports another guest from distant shores with Jonny McBee of USA’s metal-electronica act, The Browning, pairing up on vocals. Co-founders Jesse and Nathan couldn’t be more pleased.
“Its humbling and exciting to have the artist who influenced the song hop on the song for a couple parts. The demo version of this song was even placed in a folder called ‘The Browning Intro’, as it was originally intended as an intro song and inspired 100% by The Browning.” ~ Jesse Khun
With the momentum steadily on an increase, the band is itching to get onto the stage. Yesterday, Treehouse Burning announced it’s full live line-up which includes some significant ‘veteran’ names they have managed to attract to the project. Joshua Haller (drums), Gareth Ashton (bass), and joining Jesse as co-guitarist, Richard Poultney – all three members also currently with Reverse The Sands which is a finalist for the South African leg of the Wacken Metal Battle taking place in Johannesburg on May 6th – have been assembled to the cause.
