And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead – So Divided

The rather pleasantly named …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead is I guess an art rock band best known for its heavy yet anthemic music. They’ve been frequently compared to bands such as Sonic Youth, The Who and Unwound.

They have gained notoriety for destroying their equipment during performances, a tradition associated with The Who, Nirvana, and many other bands.

According to the band’s website, their name is taken from an ancient Mayan ritual chant. However, this explanation is said to be merely an ongoing joke.

The lead single from the album was the track “Wasted State of Mind”, though no music video was made for it. A video was created for the song “Naked Sun,” but with no input whatsoever from the band.

The artist-uncredited cover of Guided by Voices’ “Gold Heart Mountain Top Queen Directory” has been criticized for granting the lush arrangement that was previously only delicately implied in its former “four-track glory” on the GBV album Bee Thousand. Though the song is not properly credited to Robert Pollard or Guided by Voices, the lyrics for the song are omitted, somewhat implying that it is not an …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead original.
