And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead announce a headlining North American tour kicking off July 26th at Jelly NYCâ€™s Summer Pool Party Series in Brooklyn, NY at the newly located 5,000 capacity Williamsburg Waterfront music venue. The tour also features performances at two major US music festivals: All Points West on August 1st and Austin City Limits on October 3rd. This announcement comes on the heels of the bandsâ€™ triumphant return from their wildly successful tour through Europe, Asia and Australia supporting the release of their new album The Century of Self, out now on Richter Scale/Justice Records.
The critically acclaimed album The Century of Self was released in February of 2009 on the bandâ€™s imprint Richter Scale Records and quickly became what many in the press have praised as the bandâ€™s return to form. SPIN awarded the album with a four star review, The New Yorker raved â€œâ€¦ferociousâ€¦a new brand of progressive rock infused with anarchic executionâ€¦â€ and Billboard proclaimed Trail of Dead â€œâ€¦has once again found its footing.â€ Following the albumâ€™s release, the band unleashed the music live on a coast to coast tour and The Washington Post described their set as â€œâ€¦glistening guitar arpeggios, epic dynamic shifts and yearning upward vocals.â€ The band wowed the masses each night of the tour which came to a close at the annual SXSW Music Festival in their hometown of Austin, TX. Trail of Dead ruled the week, playing show after show to rooms of packed fans and ended the festival headlining the SPIN Magazine Party in true â€¦Trail of Dead raucous fashion with a set which many are still talking about today.
Donâ€™t miss â€¦Trail of Dead when they play in a city near you. For the most up to date info and to learn about newly added shows, head over to http://www.myspace.com/trailofdead or www.trailofdead.org.
