Can you believe that the upcoming Lost Songs album from …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead will be the band’s eighth? From listening to first single “Up To Infinity”, it sounds as if this could easily be off their first or second record or, at the very least, fit seamlessly into the tapestry of Source Tags & Codes. It’s a visceral, biting song that gives great hope for the rest of Lost Songs.
Dedicated to the recent Pussy Riot verdict and inspired by the Syrian Civil War, “Up To Infinity” is as hard and as poignant as it needs to be which is a lot. Head on over to Pitchfork to hear the exclusive stream.
Lost Songs will be released on October 23rd through Richter Scale/Superball Music.
