Austin punks …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”, 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 and the video for Tao’s “Summer of All Dead Souls” below.

We love The Belmont in Austin. We held our first SXSW party there two years ago but if you talk to Austinites, they’d all agree that the venue needed a bit of a makeover and upgrade. The Belmont celebrated their grand re-opening this past Saturday with Austin’s own …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead,.

Our photographer Jennifer Murtha was there to get some great photos of the band. Check them out below and head over to http://thebelmontaustin.com to see a list of their upcoming concerts.

The band just released their new album Tao of the Dead to great critical acclaim, inspiring Rolling Stone to declare it “…some of its strongest writing in years…breathless, genre-spanning ambition…” and SPIN to describe the album as “…thunderous melodic sprawl and cryptic musings on life and death perfectly fit the conceptual bill, with everything cranked to its natural extreme.” The band also just released the first music video for this album for the song “Summer of All Dead Souls” which Filter Magazine premiered online and you can check out here: Official Music Video “Summer Of All Dead Souls.”

Coming hot off a successful string of sold out dates on their co-headlining East Coast US tour with Surfer Blood, the band is ready to take their sized down and amped up 4-piece to the West Coast. The shows are sure to be full of high energy as the Philadelphia Inquirer noted at their recent show “These boys weren’t afraid to sweat as they ripped through an unfussy mix of taut punk and malingering prog rock.”

Pretty often at the Studio At Webster Hall, there’s a really cool free showcase. Tonight is another such occasion as Future Sounds Presents: The Rumble New York featuring Borrowed Eyes, Dead Sparrows and The Dirty Glamour. If you head over the show’s website, you can download a song from each band. Check out more info on the lineup below.

Borrowed Eyes and the Blood Red Road are a band that truly must be seen live to fully grasp the depths of their sound. Their soulful outlaw folk-fused bluesy southern rock amalgamation is easier heard than described, and the band puts on a hell of a show to say the least. Led by the charismatic frontman Danny Wood (formerly of …And You Will Know us by the Trail of Dead), Borrowed Eyes plays a blend of Americana, folk, and roots music with the intensity of a punk or metal band, and their passion for their style is apparent during the energetic jamming sections. Their sound is highly conceptual with a distinct vibe and theme, but stylistically never overthrows their music and its all around fun, soulful, and powerful breed of pure rock and roll. Look out for their new album later this year.

The Dead Sparrows are a New York City rock and roll band predominately based out of the Lower East Side. “Into the Nettles” is the latest release from the group and it slays. Recorded in a Bushwick, BK warehouse and mixed in the basement of an abandoned bar on in the LES, the album is 11 tracks of guts, guitars and vocals that make the girls toes curl.

The Dirty Glamour: The finest Lower East Side gutter rock, bred on the pure waters of the Gowanus Canal. Where the swamp meets the desert, where the slide meets the tambourine, where the electricity feeds the harmony. See them now, feel them later, ladies and gentlemen, the time has come.

Tonight July 14th 8PM
Ages 19+
The Studio @ Webster Hall
125 East 11th Street
