File this one under oh so very appropriate. In anticipation of their soon to be released album The Century of Self
on their own Richter Scale record label, ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of the Dead
have announced plans to blaze a...err, trail...across the US in support of the February 17th release. The tour will commense 2 days after that release on the 19th in Dallas and send the band rollicking round the country from NYC's Bowery Ballroom, to Slim's out in 'Frisco. Tour dates below. For more info on the album, we turn to the word for word diagnosis from the band's PR hand...
"The Century of Self was produced and mixed by Chris Coady (TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Grizzly Bear) at his DNA Studio in NYC's East Village. The album was recorded Spring 2008 in Austin, TX with Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Patty Griffin) at The Mob House and Chris Frenchie Smith (Sixteen Deluxe, Smog, Jet) at The Bubble. Featuring vocal contributions from Yeasayer and Dragons of Zynth, Trail of Dead's sixth full-length is a return to their indie roots while showing the progression the band has made since its inception in 1994."
