Screaming Trees were a grunge
band formed in Ellensburg, Washington in 1985. Their sound was a mix of 60's psychedelia
and punk rock
, and even though they were critically acclaimed by many, they never achieved the superstardom of their peers. Following the Dust tour, Screaming Trees took another hiatus. After a June 25th 2000 concert to celebrate the opening Seattle's Experience Music Project, the group unsurprisingly announced their official breakup.
