One of my favorite bands, Austin’s ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, are set to release their new album Lost Songs on October 22nd via Richter Scale. The album promises to be an overtly political statement. Conrad Keely and Jason Reece will again be joined by Autry Fulbright and Jamie Miller, who helped on the band last record, Tao Of The Dead.
Today we can share lead cut, 'Up To Infinity,' which the band recently dedicated to Pussy Riot. Check it out below alongside some words from Conrad Keely.
"Hello, we are ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead. This is our eighth album, it was recorded this summer in Hannover, Germany. The music was inspired by the apathy to real world events that has plagued the independent music scene now for over a decade. The first preview of our album, entitled “Up To Infinity”, is about the Syrian civil war. 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".
"We would like to also dedicate this song to Pussy Riot."
