Before the internet had proven its worth, bands like …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead were the only glimpse post-rock kids had into the promise lands of Washington and Texas (where life was way cooler and more relevant than in say, Massachusetts, which was the 7th circle of hell). Fifteen years, seven albums, and dozens of imitators later, we’re happy to report that if the prog-rock vets have changed, they’re not showing it here. Preview track “Weight Of The Sun” is poppy, scream-filled, and fully subscribes to the power-murk-power formula Trail Of Dead made famous back in 1994. Fingers crossed for the rest of the album, Tao Of The Dead, which the band will promote via dates with Surfer Blood.
