TRACKING: ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - "Catatonic"

 

SOUNDS LIKE: At The Drive-In, Sparta, Sonic Youth
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE: Austin punks return with a politically charged video for their menacing new single

Make your own assumptions as to whom Rich Dobney may or may not be a parody of, it could be any politican really, but it seems like he's probably not who he really claims to be.  Lighting stogies with money, having a rendezvous in the bathroom.. is this really what he should be doing instead of doing things that would be beneficial to the American people?

This happens to be the premise for the recently released clip for "Catatonic", the raging new single from Austin's ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead.  As the lead single from their upcoming album Lost Songs, the one thing that isn't lost is their love of rock and roll. Anthemic guitars are amidst the equally anthemic shouts and screams of longtime members Conrad Keeley & Jason Reece.  Lost Songs, their 8th studio album (and no, it isn't a collection of outtakes), will be out October 23rd.
