...And You Will Know Us: New Album in 2011


new single
The core members of ...And You Will Know us By The Trail of DeadConrad Keely and Jason Reece – return with their seventh longplayer titled Tao of the Dead on February 8th, 2011 in North America, February 7th in the UK and Europe and February 4th in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The new album pays faithful homage to Pink Floyd, Rush, Steppenwolf, and Neu!, and in order to retrace their musical steps, the band enlisted long-time friend Chris "Frenchie" Smith (producer of the band's seminal 1998 self-titled LP). The band also experimented with celebrated indie producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blonde Redhead) on a 15 minute opus titled "Tao of the Dead Part 2."

To kick things off …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead are releasing the first single off the album, "Summer Of All Dead Souls," on November 29.

Formed in late 1994 by singers/guitarists/drummers Conrad Keely and Jason Reece, Trail of Dead has evolved over the years, expanding their line-up while still being creatively driven by the founding members. Friends since childhood, Keely and Reece started playing music in the indie rock town of Olympia, WA and eventually relocated to Austin, TX where they started …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead.

The band will of course be touring in support of the new album, kicking things off in Europe at the end of March on a co-headlining tour with Rival Schools and then heading out in the US at the end of April – dates to be announced shortly.
