…AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD – annunciano tre eventi in live-stream
…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead annunciano tre speciali eventi live-stream per quest’estate a causa dell’annullamento dei tour e degli eventi dal vivo. I tre eventi saranno caratterizzati da set da un’ora con setlist “by request” dei fan di tutto il mondo, alcuni classici e brani mai proposti live.
Di seguito gli orari dei tre streaming show:
31 luglio 2020 – 03:00; Live Set
7 agosto 2020 – 22:00; EU/UK Live Set
14 agosto 2020 – 03:00; Studio Set
Per lo show del 31 luglio la band donerà il 20% della vendita dei biglietti a tutti quei locali nella quale avrebbe dovuto suonare nel tour statunitense del 2020. Gli AYWKUBTTOD hanno creato del merchandise apposito disponibile dal giorno dello spettacolo. Il 20% del ricavato dello show del 14 agosto andrà invece in beneficenza ad alcuni negozi di dischi indipendenti degli States.
Disponibile il link dei tre live stream: www.trailofdead.com/livestream
I primi due spettacoli saranno gestiti da Safehouse di Austin, già host di numerosi live stream negli ultimi anni. Il terzo e ultimo show sarà registrato sul palco del Mosaic Sound Collective, la stessa location dove la band ha registrato l’ultimo album “X: The Godless Void and Other Stories” e gestito dallo stesso produttore del disco Charles Godfrey.
…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead came up with the plan for these livestreams when faced with the reality that touring in 2020 was no longer possible. Earlier this year the band released their critically acclaimed 10th studio album X: The Godless Void and Other Stories and embarked on what was going to be a year of touring to celebrate the new LP as well as their 25th anniversary. All this came to a grinding halt in mid-March and with the pandemic wreaking havoc in the US and beyond, Trail of Dead decided to create three full-band livestream performances for their fans that would also provide some financial assistance to the venues and record stores that have supported the band throughout their career and in 2020, when these folks most need it.
As mentioned, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead released their first new album in six years earlier this year, with the launch of ‘X: The Godless Void and Other Stories’. Watch the video for the track ‘Something Like This’ here: https://youtu.be/CTi2KG6jkjY
The new album received fantastic reactions from the press, with Louder Than War calling it “a real return to form”, while Prog Magazine said that “hugeness, at last, should beckon”. This comes ahead of a 26-date European tour that begins in France on the 9th February.

As they enter their 25th year together, Trail of Dead is back to their core with Keely and Reece at the helm and basing themselves in Austin where Reece has been holding it down since the band’s early days. Keely returned in 2018 after a five-year stint in Cambodia and earlier this year they took the band on the road for a 20th anniversary tour of 1999’s Madonna.

X: The Godless Void and Other Stories was produced by …Trail’s own Conrad Keely alongside engineer Charles Godfrey (Sinkane, of Montreal, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Work on the new album began in earnest in 2018 after Keely returned home to Austin following five years in Cambodia, rejoining fellow founding member Jason Reece. As a result, the album sees Keely detailing “the sadness of moving away from a place that I loved,” while also taking inspiration from Steven Pressfield’s book The War Of Art to face his own demons regarding the creative process. “I feel like I’m writing pop music,” he says, “it’s just not Top 20 pop. It’s the pop music I wish was on the radio, the pop music I would’ve grown up with.”
