Trail of Dead posts new song

Metalnews Power of
…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead are set to release their new album ‘IX’ in Europe on the 20th October and the US on 11th November and following last week’s debut of the track ‘The Ghost Within’, the band can now reveal another side to the album with ‘A Million Random Digits’. 

Head over here to check it out:

The band had this to say about the track:
“A Million Random Digits - the title stolen from a book I found on one of those shelves in a guest house where backpackers are supposed to leave a book when they take one. Fortunately I'm not a backpacker so I'm not obligated to leave anything if I take one - which is also how I got a copy of Balthazar Gracian's Art of Worldly Wisdom (in it Gracian recommends allowing yourself one vice, and mine is stealing useful things like books). The lyrics were inspired by the Viking series I'd recently watched on the History Channel -actually I watched a pirated copy (yet another vice) because we don't get the History Channel out here. I felt a sense of connection to the idea of the Northmen being away from family while going a-raiding, similar to being away from family while working on a record - you end up killing about the same amount of people as well.”

European fans can get this track along with ‘The Ghost Within’ instantly when they pre-order the album digitally here:

The band are also set to hit Europe on tour in November, and last week announced that a second night in London on the 18th November would see them play the entirety of seminal album ‘Source Tags & Codes’.

On this European run they will also be joined by Canada’s Your Favorite Enemies, as well as Midnight Masses, the band featuring Autry Fulbright & Jason Reece of …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead. Their debut album ‘Departures’ was released last month, and this tour will see their live debut in Europe. You can see the video for ‘Broken Mirror’ from Midnight Masses here:
