…And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead just announced three livestream events taking place this summer, starting with the July 31 US Live Set at 8 p.m. CST, followed by the Aug. 7 UK/EU Live Set at 8 p.m. GMT +1and ending with the Aug. 14 In the Studio set at 8 p.m. CST. The first two livestreams will be in conjunction with Safehouse here in Austin where the band will be performing in the same space they’ve been holding rehearsals, to give their fans an intimate glimpse into their current reality. The third and final livestream will take place on the sound stage of Mosaic Sound Collective, where …Trail of Dead recorded their 10th studio album, “X: The Godless Void and Other Stories,” which came out earlier this year.
After …Trail of Dead had to cut their 2020 tour short back in March due to COVID-19, they decided to host these livestreams to support the venues they played and were set to play this year by donating 20% of ticket sales to them. They’ve also created some exclusive merch for the event that will be available the same day as the stream and 20% of proceeds are going toward select US independent record stores including all 34 in the Coalition of Independent Music Stores along with several AIMS stores, notably End Of An Ear here in Austin, TX, Luna Music in Indianapolis, IN, Young Ones in Kutztown, PA and Daddy Kool in St. Petersburg, FL.
