[STRAIGHT TO PRINT] …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead to Release Tao Of The Dead in February 2011.

Wednesday, 10 November 2010

Revealing secrets of their longevity, the core members of …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead – Conrad Keely and Jason Reece – are back with their seventh long-player.  Aptly titled, Tao Of The Dead, …Trail of Dead (also lovingly known to some as the band that won't die) come back yet again with a surprisingly forceful yet sophisticated new album that evokes a refreshing nostalgia (paying faithful homage to Pink Floyd, Rush, Steppenwolf, and Neu!…yes NEU!).  To retrace their musical steps, the band enlisted long-time friend Chris "Frenchie" Smith (producer of the band's seminal 1998 self-titled LP) to find that blistering sound that pricked up critics ears twelve years ago. We find them also experimenting with celebrated indie producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blonde Redhead) on a fifteen-minute opus titled "Tao of the Dead Part 2." The immediacy of this new album is not to be missed and picks up where 2009's Century of Self left hardcore fans wondering “what's next?”

To kick things off the label will be releasing the first single off the album – “Summer Of All Dead Souls” on November 29.

…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead return with Tao Of The Dead – their seventh full-length Studio album – on February 8, 2011 on Richter Scale Records/Superballmusic in North America.
