Exclusive Song: …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead

Hear "Ascending," a standout track off the Texan art-rock band's 4-star album, three weeks in advance of its release!

On February 17 …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead will return with their best album in years, The Century of Self — and you can hear one its top tracks right here, right now!

Opening with a wall of colliding guitar melodies and thunderous drums, “Ascending” picks up where 2002’s art- and alt-rock masterpiece Source Tags & Codes left off, complete with marching band drums and pirate-like battle chants, bolstered by vocals from Brooklyn psych-rock crazies Dragons of Zynth: “After the war / We left the dead on the shore / But their screams and cries / Still haunt us wherever we go.”

Stream the track below. Then leave your thoughts in the comments section.
