And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
The world’s most endeared art-rock mothertruckers ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead return to celebrate the release of their tenth album--X: The Godless Void and Other Stories - set for release on January 17,2020 via Superball Music in Europe and Dine Alone Records in North America. X: The Godless Void and Other Stories leans in and reaches forth….from the synth-orchestral swell of curtain-raiser “Opening Crescendo” that recalls Hanz Zimmer and Tangerine Dream to “All Who Wander”, a descending guitar-soaked high drama that simmers underlying despondance that crawls psychic. With a steady and consistent work ethic, the band has previously released 9 records and continues to charm the globe with a performance that channels a dichotomous blend of beauty and chaos. With a new line-up, AYWKUBTTOD has reverted to the live format of their earlier years, founding members Jason Reece and Conrad Keely alternating between drums and frontman duties--a musical partnership that dates back to their high school days. Appropriately, it all feels fresh as 2020 marks a 25 year anniversary for ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead. Autry are based in Austin, TX, Conrad is based in Cambodia and Jamie lives in LA.
Alex Henry Foster & the Long Shadows
Alex Henry Foster (AHF) is a Canadian musician, singer-songwriter, author, producer, and composer, best known as the frontman of Juno Awards nominee Post-Rock / Noise band Your Favorite Enemies (YFE).
Fierce human rights advocate, Foster has been a very active public speaker over the last decade, commenting on racism, the proliferation of street gangs – in the midst of which he spent his teenage years, the resurgence of populism and identity extremism amongst other things, as well as teaming up with Amnesty International for several campaigns. He also established the non-profit group Rock N Rights in 2004, initiating sensibilization awareness towards children soldiers, has created The Hope Project following the Japanese Tsunami of 2011, and most recently took part in the recent pressure on the Canadian authorities regarding Saudi blogger Raif Badawi.
Aside from having been among one of the first waves of writers to embrace the blogging medium back in 2006, Foster has been a recurrent contributor to the Japanese music mag BEEAST since 2015. He also published the book “A Journey Beyond Ourselves” in 2017 and launched the digital lifestyle mag The Eye View in early 2018.
Foster is also known for being a precursor of a new generation of independent artists/entrepreneurs, as he is not only the co-owner of the respected label “Hopeful Tragedy Records” along with his bandmate Jeff Beaulieu, but he is also the co-founder of the Upper Room studio located in a former Catholic church transformed in a multimedia complex and founded the conceptual creative group The Fabrik, from which bloomed several clothing collections as well as a special line of jewelry, Red Crown Crane, in collaboration with YFE’s keyboard player & art designer, Miss Isabel.
On November 9, 2018, Foster released a first solo music project, an intimate poetry essay about finding peace, faith and hope through the context of grief, depression, and distress. This album is the first project to be released within a new partnership venture established between his label Hopeful Tragedy Records and Sony Music Entertainment / The Orchard.
A real baseball fanatic and a counterculture kook, Foster is also the proud daddy of two dogs named Leonard and MacKaye… and likes to simply be called Alex.
