Like many bands in 2020, …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead started off the year full of ambition and unfettered by the harsh realities that were soon to settle in. In January Trail of Dead hit two major milestones, not only their twenty-fifth year together as a group but also the release of their tenth full-length X: The Godless Void and Other Stories. They were dead set on a two-month international tour after the release of The Godless Void… until their venue opportunities dissipated in the wake of COVID-19.
But jumping to today, Trail of Dead is about to kick off the first of three live streams at 8pm tonight with proceeds from this initial concert going to one of twenty venues the band was slated to perform at, including Austin’s own Mohawk. They’ll be following it up on August 7th with a stream for the UK and EU, and wrapping up the series on August 14th with a performance at Mosaic Sound Collective, where Trail of Dead tracked X. So help a venue with a little love and treat yourself with the complimentary title track of sorts for Trail of Dead’s latest, “Into the Godless Void”!
