…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead on the verge of leaving some more grim trails with upcoming tour of North America

…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead on the verge of leaving some more grim trails with upcoming tour of North America

Though it’s undoubtedly more enjoyable if you do, you don’t need to actually see Trail of Dead to surmise the Trail of Dead live experience. An acquaintance with their recorded works leads to the following supposition: the Austin quartet ventures on stage, and so commences the breaking loose of all hell. The accumulation of energy threatens the structural integrity of the stage and/or building, and the accumulation of sweat leads to a stream two-inches deep flowing down to the audience, from upper plateau to lower. Wading, moshing, and possibly puking due to the sheer intensity of it all, fans don’t wonder if it’ll ever end, they wonder if they’ll survive to make it to the end. But so they do, assuming they can avoid any flying debris resulting from the band’s tendency to end things with a little equipment-trashing.

Sounds like fun though, no? Inhabitants of Asia and Australia just recently had the chance to experience this musical shitstorm firsthand, and now, the band has announced a series of dates in North America and Europe for right in the middle of summer — because something feels wrong about heading into a Trail of Dead show wearing a god damn parka.

Separately, as far as releases go, the band has a PledgeMusic campaign for their next EP Tao of the Dead Part III, tentatively due out September 24. And on July 9, Superball Music will be reissuing the following albums on 180g vinyl: Lost Songs, Tao of the Dead, The Century of Self, Madonna, and …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. Mortality doesn’t seem to be a question here.
