After spending the better part of the past decade pursuing academia, former Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin is poised to reclaim the drum throne with his new band, Big High. The band is slated to release its self-titled debut album on June 15 on Martin’s own Fast Horse Recordings. The disc also features R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, with whom Martin played in his instrumental band, Tuatara. In addition, Martin has announced that he will release his fifth solo album some time this winter.
