My KUTX: …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead

Posted by on Jan 2, 2016

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead has had a momentous couple of years recently. In 2014, the Austin band released its ninth album–fittingly called IX–and celebrated twenty years together. Band members have come and gone over those two decades, but at the heart of the storm sits founding members Conrad Keely (singer and guitarist) and Jason Reece (drums, guitars, vocals).

This week on My KUTX, Jason is our guest DJ. A typical Trail of Dead song has a lot going on in it—punk, prog rock, a little bit of metal—so we thought it’d be interesting to hear the band’s influences. Listen in the player below.
