...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead will mark their triumphant return to causing damage to your eardrums with the completion of their sixth full-length (and as yet untitled) album. The new disc is currently scheduled for release in January '09 on their own label imprint, Richter Scale Records. Their imprint is part of a label deal with Justice Records, who allow their artists to maintain the ownership and copyrights to their art and music.
The new album was recorded with their longtime friend Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Patty Griffin) and Chris "Frenchie" Smith (Sixteen Deluxe, Smog) at The Mob House and The Bubble. The tracks were then mixed by Chris Coady, who has worked with TV On The Radio and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. So who is ready for some ear-splitting anthemic rock?
As more information pops up on Trail Of Dead's upcoming new album, we will be sure to keep you posted.
