It’s hard to believe that …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead’s most critically acclaimed album, 2002’s Source Tags and Codes, is almost 10 years old. And yet, the band is still kicking. In fact, Superball Music has announced that it has signed a worldwide deal with Trail of Dead to release their next album along with the band’s own label, Richter Scale Records. Trail of Dead had already partnered up with Superball in the past to handle their European releases, so this announcement shouldn’t come as a complete shock.
Trail of Dead are currently working on their seventh studio album, which will be the follow-up to 2009’s The Century of Self. The album is due out in early 2011.
