…AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD have announced their return to Australia in August 2015 to perform shows celebrating their 20th anniversary in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.


Trail of Dead formed as a quartet in late 1994, with key members Conrad Keely and Jason Reece remaining the staple of the band’s lineup ever since. The third of their nine studio albums SOURCE TAGS AND CODES was released in 2002 to extensive critical acclaim. The band’s latest record IX was released in late 2014 to rave reviews for their renewed approach to invigorating, expansive and experimental rock.


The band’s 20th anniversary tour has been traversing the world throughout 2015 with headline dates and festivals across North America and Europe and the shows will feature a wide selection of tracks from across the band’s incredible back catalogue.


Joining Trail of Dead for all Australian shows are art-rock legends THE RED PAINTINGS who return for a national tour for the first time in 2 years. After a stunning set supporting Mogwai at this year’s Adelaide Festival, the band will continue their ambitious world tour in support of ‘The Revolution Is Never Coming’ with a triumphant homecoming tour.


Having toured together in North America, The Red Paintings’ live art show often featured Trail’s Conrad Keely (himself an accomplished visual artist) painting on stage during their sets. Expect potential further collaborations on this rare art-rock showcase across the country.


‘IX’ is out now through Superball Music.
