ABOUT …TRAIL OF DEAD
. . . And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead’s explosive rock is defined by the push and pull of Conrad Keely’s epic mysticism and Jason Reece’s primal punk surge. However, when it came time to write the band’s new album, Lost Songs, the two songwriters weren’t even living in the same country: Keely had relocated to Cambodia while Reece remained in Austin, the band’s longtime homebase. Ultimately, the raw, guitar-driven urgency of Lost Songs was inspired by this physical and metaphorical disconnect. The album finds the band in classic rocking form, especially on standout track “Catatonic.”
