Please The Trees is psychedelic rock band from the Czech Republic. They have been following intuitively the trail of inspiration for ten years now. Their live reputation precedes them, and what a reputation it is: an all enveloping, intense and soulful sound that puts pretenders in their place. The band received Czech Grammy award for the best alternative record of 2012 with their third album A Forest Affair (Starcastic Records) recorded in California, produced by Jonathan Burnside. Past tours of hundreds of shows included Europe, UK, USA and Israel. Fourth studio record called Carp came out at Starcastic Records in September 2015. The album was recorded with Chris Koltay at High Bias Recordings, Detroit during the band’s fourth self organised US tour. After the release the album gets ravishing reviews and receives APOLLO – Czech Critics Choice Music Awards for best record of 2015. In the Summer of 2015 PTT open for Robert Plant And The Sensational Space Shifters and tour Europe as opening act with Two Gallants. In October 2016 the band returns to tour US and Canada for another month long tour, organized by Leafy Green booking agency (which represents also Swans, Mudhoney, Kid Kongo and others). During this tour the band records to be the fifth yet untitled full lenght album with Brandon Eggleston at Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco.
