Austin’s …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead are about to release their eighth full length, Lost Songs. The follow-up to last year’s solid Tao of the Dead, it appears to be more of that album’s raw back-to-basics post punk.
Lead single “Up To Infinity” has the massive hooks and soft/loud dynamic we’ve come to expect from these guys:
Frontman Conrad Keely told pitchfork the song is about the Syrian civil war but has been dedicated to imprisoned Russian punk band Pussy Riot, saying “We believe that tyranny and despotism suffered by any people, anywhere, is intolerable and should not be treated as an internal matter, but completely justifies intervention by the international community.”
Lost Songs arrives October 23rd on Richter Scale/Superball Music.
