good band, shitty name

 hank-unitard-guy

i was perpetually turned off by …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead because i thought only kids who straightened their hair and shopped at Hot Topic would listen to a band with such a name. but surprisingly, they don’t suck. Instead, they kind of kick ass with their haunting (yet catchy) melodies.

one of the guys (the two members switch off playing singer+lead guitarist/drummer for every show and recording) used to refurbish the mastheads of many of the fishing vessels that would dock in Olympia, Washington for extra cash along side Anton Newcombe of the Brian Jonestown Massacre.

so have a listen, take a gander, and remember kids: don’t judge a book by its cover.

 …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead-Wasted state of mind

 …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead-Life

it’s even annoying just to type the name more than once. jeez.
