…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead Tomorrow in Brooklyn

April 29th, 2015

Austin, Texas, prog-punkers …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead—Conrad Keely (vocals and guitar), Jason Reece (drums and vocals), Autry Fulbright (bass and vocals) and Jamie Miller (guitar and drums)—are currently out on the road in support of their ninth album, the aptly titled IX (stream it below), which was released last year to plenty of love. According to NME, “Themed around death and loss, IX sees the Texans at their most focused and thrilling. Portentous song titles and elemental imagery abound as ‘The Doomsday Book’ ushers in an opening sequence whose howling guitar and thunderstorm drumming recalls the promise of the Austin band’s early days.” You can see …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead (above, performing “The Dragon Queen” for KUTX FM) live when they play late night on Friday at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Montreal six-piece Your Favorite Enemies and Austin quintet Boyfrndz open the show.
