Jade Tree turns 25 this year. Founded in 1990 by Tim Owen and Darren Walters in Wilmington, Delaware, the label rapidly established itself as an important musical taste maker, discovering and releasing records for such luminaries as The Promise Ring, Jets To Brazil, Fucked Up, Lifetime, Pedro the Lion, Cap'n Jazz, Kid Dynamite, Swiz, Owls, Paint it Black, Strike Anywhere, From Ashes Rise, Joan of Arc, Young Widows, and Avail among others. We're preparing for a busy 2015 and many exciting announcements will be made in the coming months. The label recently released the debut LP from Philadelphia's menacing, muscular Dark Blue and a new EP from Florida's rising indie-darlings You Blew It! while preparing for a new album from the reunited Spraynard.
