…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead return with seventh album Tao of the Dead, band name still …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead

…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead are back! On February 8, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead are releasing Tao of the Dead through their own Richter Scale imprint, which was created to rescue the group from the tyranny of major label Interscope (responsible for releasing three of their albums, including the one you’ve all heard, Source Tags & Codes) with the release of 2009’s The Century of Self. We are told that Tao of the Dead, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead’s seventh album, sees …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead experimenting with producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Blonde Redhead, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), exemplified most obviously with a 15-minute track titled “Tao of the Dead Part 2.”

This sounds serious, readers. Not convinced? The first single off the album, due November 29, is called… “Summer Of All Dead Souls.” Uh, Debbie Downer alert? The tracklisting hasn’t been announced yet, but here are track titles that our undercover detectives think might be included:

- “Crying Souls, Never Again”
- “Save Yourself, For You Need It”
- “Dying Wishes (Invisible Cries)”
- “Wailing Wars”
- “Dead Eyes Burning”
- “Candles in a Dying Corpse”
- “Living Full of Dread Pt. II”
- “Melted Eyes”

Dates with and without Rival Schools coming soon.
