On June 13th, 1996, Screaming Trees played at the Trocadero in Philadelphia! Screaming Trees emerged out Seattle in the late 1980s amongst fellow grunge pioneers Mudhoney, The Melvins, Soundgarden, and Green River, releasing their first four albums on SST Records before jumping to major label Epic Records in the 1990s.
In 1996, the band released their final studio album, “Dust.” Following this tour, the band went on hiatus for frontman Mark Lanegan to begin work on his third solo album, “Scraps At Midnight,” which was released in 1998. Thereafter, the band recorded a few demos in 1999 for their next studio album. However, the band ultimately disbanded in 2000.
