…And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead will return in 2009 with a brand new album, ‘The Century of Self’ due out on 23rd February and full UK tour. Freedom from their former record label has let the band create a work that they are proud of.

“The new songs are very personal,” says Conrad Keely. “Some of them are autobiographical. We’re building on everything we’ve ever done, looking back on our whole career and taking a lot inspiration from our early music. We continue to evolve the concept and try to incorporate new ideas. And there was no point on the record where we were trying to write songs you’d hear on commercial radio. We know that singles are driving the market, and we don’t care.”

15 Nottingham Rescue Rooms

16 Manchester Academy 3

17 Glasgow Oran Mor

19 Newcastle Academy
