Rolling Stone Premieres Trail of Dead’s “Catatonic”

By on September 29, 2012

The quartet …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead premieres “Catatonic,” their second new song from their upcoming album Lost Songs, exclusively with ROLLING STONE and SPOTIFY today. Conrad from ToD about this track: “This song was originally called Catatonic Youth. It is a portrait of an over-privileged, dispassionate generation.” 

Song Premiere:
         . . . And You Will Know US by the Trail of Dead, ‘Catatonic’
‘We’re not trying to shove any sort of gospel down someone’s throat,’ says Jason Reece 
. . . And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead’s explosive indie-prog is defined by the push and pull of Conrad Keely’s epic mysticism and Jason Reece’s primal punk surge. But when it came time to write their eighth studio album, Lost Songs, the two songwriters weren’t even living in the same country: Reece remained in Austin, the band’s longtime home base, while Keely had relocated to Phnom Pehn, the vibrant capital city of Cambodia. Fittingly, the raw, guitar-driven urgency of Lost Songswas inspired by disconnect – mainly the juxtaposition of American cynicism with the cultural freedom Keely has experienced abroad…
