Trail Of Dead to play 2 UK shows

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead have confirmed two standalone UK shows in May.

The Texan troupe will appear at the Temples festival pre-party at the Marble Factory in Bristol on May 28, then they’ll play the Camden Rocks festival in London on May 30.

Their live activities continue to support last year’s album IX, launched via Superball Music. They recently said of the follow-up to 2012’s Lost Songs: “This transmission is here to transport and ruin you. It is the release of your mortal coil.

“Just let the rain wash it away from the mountains, down to the sea, wash it away, blow it all away and check this moment out.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
