A few months back we teamed up with our friends ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead
to give the band's seventh record, Tao Of The Dead
, the kind of boisterous release day party it truly deserved. Quite simply, it's an extraordinary record; one our own Derrick Wiest asserted was "one of their most engaging albums to date". A celebration was obviously in order.
And so the band, our camera crew, and a flock of their closest 400 fans crammed into the back room of Littlefield in South Brooklyn for an exclusive release day performance/shoot of songs new and old, taking in some of the incredible artwork ToD's Conrad Keely also had on display for fans to check out ahead of the show.
We'll be releasing the video of the band's full performance next week. Until then, we'd like to whet your appetite with some of our conversation with both Keely and band-mate Jason Reece. It's an intriguing look at the band, their new album, and some of the motivations that drive both of these prolific artists. Have a look and be sure to return to the site next week when we unleash the band's full performance.
