Trail of Dead to play album release party in NYC
The lucky folks in and around the NYC area get to see rockers ...And you will know us by the Trail of Dead perform and show off their artwork.
Big fan here so I am jealous for sure.
Trail of Dead band members Conrad Keely and Jason Reece have teamed up with Baeblemusic for an exclusive release date event at Littlefield in Brooklyn on February 8th to celebrate their seventh full-length studio album – Tao of the Dead (Superball Music).
It’s an opportunity for fans to catch the band in an intimate setting and get to view the incredible artwork of Trail’s own Conrad Keely. Not only will Keely be displaying original art from the new album, he’ll also be debuting two large scale paintings. Check out the official 'Tao Of The Dead' site.
Reports are that the album is "forceful" yet "sophisticated" on this new album.
Tao of the Dead also features unbelievable cover art by Keely who brought characters and elements from previous album art to life through his graphic novella – created to accompany the release. When Keely co-founded the band with Jason Reece in 1994 he began discovering new ways to blend his love of art and music, mainly through the band's album covers and CD booklets. The art has evolved over the years, but has always been in a Victorian style, with a more recent branch into what some people have categorized as Steampunk – a sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy that often draws from the Victorian era when steam power was used and the genre came into prominence during the 80’s and early 90’s.
To celebrate this incredible artwork and the band’s impressive new album …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead teamed up with Baeblemusic, Superball Music and Littlefield to put on this one time release date event.
