The Void and Beyond

By: Laurie Gallardo

Despite impressions perhaps indicating otherwise, your Austin Music Minute host is not prone to much sentimentality. But it’s so cool and badass to note that …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead played their very first show in 1995. And, thanks to what looked and felt like a cyclone of boundless energy, the band soon developed a reputation for these pulse-racing performances that might have resulted in a few damaged instruments. Maybe a bloody nose? Or not.

But that’s the energy that their music called for, reined in, conjured up from its expansive, guitar-laden depths. Now, Trail of Dead’s tenth album in 25 years comes out this Friday, X: The Godless Void and Other Stories –  as melodic as it is atmospheric and tremendous. They’re ushering in another Trail of Dead chapter of fantastic, atmospheric adventure.

Before they head out on tour Friday, you have the chance to see Trail of Dead at their album release show tonight at The Far Out Lounge, 8504 S. Congress Ave. The night gets started right with an opening set by longtime AMM fave Think No Think. Doors at 7 p.m. This one comes very recommended.
