...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead have announced the follow-up to last year's Tao of the Dead. Titled Lost Songs, the band's eighth full-length is out October 23 via Richter Scale/Superball Music. Check out a cut, "Up to Infinity" HERE, which the band has dedicated to Pussy Riot. Frontman Conrad Keely said:
"The music was inspired by the apathy to real world events that has plagued the independent music scene now for over a decade. "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."
To support the record, they're heading out on a fall tour, which includes a stop at Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest. Check out the dates below.
