...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
…AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD have announced new shows to coincide with their 20th anniversary tour of Australia in August 2015.
In addition to the already-announced Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth shows, they will return to play Adelaide for the first time in 13 years (since their 2002 co-headline tour with Mogwai). They will also return to New Zealand for the first time in 6 years, playing shows in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.
Trail of Dead formed as a quartet in late 1994, with key members Conrad Keely and Jason Reece remaining the staple of the band's lineup ever since. The third of their nine studio albums SOURCE TAGS AND CODES was released in 2002 to extensive critical acclaim (and a 10/10 Pitchfork review). The band's latest record IX has been released in Australia to coincide with the tour and displays their invigorating and influential approach towards expansive and experimental rock.
The band's 20th anniversary tour has been traversing the world throughout 2015 with headline dates and festivals across North America and Europe and the shows will feature a wide selection of tracks from across the band's incredible back catalogue.
Joining Trail of Dead for all Australian shows are art-rock legends THE RED PAINTINGS who return for a national Australian tour for the first time in 2 years. After a stunning set supporting Mogwai at this year's Adelaide Festival, the band will continue their ambitious world tour in support of debut album 'The Revolution Is Never Coming' with their first New Zealand shows in 9 years, since their debut international shows playing sold out dates alongside The Dresden Dolls in 2006.
Having toured together in North America, The Red Paintings' live art show often featured Trail's Conrad Keely (himself an accomplished visual artist) painting on stage during their sets. Expect further collaborations on this rare art-rock showcase across the continents.
'IX' is out now in Australia through Superball Music.
