...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead Overview


…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead (often abbreviated as Trail of Dead) is an American art rock band from Austin, Texas. According to the band's website, their name is taken from an ancient Mayan ritual chant which shows a striking similarity to an ancient Egyptian chant. This explanation, however, is said to be merely an ongoing joke. The chief creative elements of the band are Jason Reece and Conrad Keely. The two switch between drumming and lead vocals and guitar, both on their records and during their shows. (On some songs, former bass player Neil Busch sang lead vocals). As of February 2009, the band has released six studio albums. Their sixth album, The Century of Self, was released on February 17, 2009.
