AndYouWillKnowUsByTheTrailOfDeadLostSongsAnd You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead are arguably the most consistent alternative rock band of all time. Formed back in 1995, the two members that formed the band have never delivered an album that you can fob off. All of their eight studio projects have delivered their unique sound at the highest level mixing apocolyptic guitar punk with rock and roll at the highest level and then stripping it down to melodic undertones big enough to fill a desert.

This endless quest that Jason Reece and Conrad Keely have been on since meeting in Hawaii all those years ago, through non-stop touring, smashing equiptment and giving their all at every show brings us to today’s unveiling of their new video for ‘Lost Songs‘. It was filmed over six weeks on three continents in nearly twenty countries proving just how much this band put into their quest to share their music. It’s the title track from their new album featuring two minutes of rolling drums and lost souls and even though it may not be the strongest song on the album, it’s a perfect introduction before hearing the mammoth ‘Catatonic’ that you can hear below.

The record was dedicated to Pussy Riot when released last year, pick it up here and support this band as they have supported our ears superbly for years.

Tune of Day: Trail of Dead – Summer Of All Dead Souls

...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
The 5-piece with the best band name in independent music scene, ..And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead may be on their 7th album but in that time they have never once delivered a long player that doesn’t get rinsed in this office.

Most bands curl up and churn out drivel on at least one or two records throughout a career that last this long but Trail of Dead seem to be in a league of their own on every record and have mastered the indie rock scene that was once built by the likes of Sonic Youth and co.

The new album Tao of the Dead storms into gear with new single Summer Of All Dead Souls, today’s track of the day purely because it captures everything that AYWKUBTTOD are about; amazing melodies, heartfelt lyrics, orchestral brilliance and a certain anthemic joy that only comes with Conrad Keely and
Jason Reece’ own brand of guitar led genius.

Look out for the new album, we will review it in full next week. It was recorded in 10 days and is arguably their best recording since their debut back in 2008. Listen to this and scout it out.
