And Also the Trees is a post-punk / gothic rock band formed in 1979 in Worcestershire, UK. The group started in the dawn of the 1980s in Inkberrow, a small village in Worcestershire, far in the countryside. They never had the pressure to move to London. Inspired by the ideology of a still-developing post-punk movement, the band was influenced almost exclusively by the landscape and history of the rural environment that surrounded them. A home demo tape was sent to The Cure which led to a friendship between both bands.
