Major label expatriates and rogue rockers …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead announce a national US tour in support of their highly anticipated full-length – The Century of Self – out February 17th, 2009 on the band’s Richter Scale Records imprint on Justice Records. The tour kicks off on the 19th of February at the Granada Theater in Dallas, TX. Fresh on the heels of the album’s release, it will take the Austin musicians coast to coast to perform at notable venues including the Bowery Ballroom in NYC and Slim’s in San Francisco.
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.
