Trail of Dead & Baeble Bring You An Exclusive Art Show & Performance at Littlefield in Brooklyn 2/8!
This will be a very special engagement and the band’s only NYC area show until they return in April to kick off their co-headlining tour with Surfer Blood at Bowery Ballroom. This is a perfect opportunity for fans to catch the band in an intimate setting and get to view the incredible artwork of Trail’s own Conrad Keely. Not only will Keely be displaying original art from the new album, he’ll also be debuting two large scale paintings.
We hope to bring you an album review of Tao of the Dead soon so be checking back for that. The album also features unbelievable cover art (shown above) by Keely who brought characters and elements from previous album art to life through his graphic novella – created to accompany the release. When Keely co-founded the band with Jason Reece in 1994 he began discovering new ways to blend his love of art and music, mainly through the band’s album covers and CD booklets. The art has evolved over the years, but has always been in a Victorian style, with a more recent branch into what some people have categorized as Steampunk – a sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy that often draws from the Victorian era when steam power was used and the genre came into prominence during the 80’s and early 90’s.
To celebrate this incredible artwork and the band’s impressive new album …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead teamed up with Baeblemusic, Superball Music and Littlefield to put on this one time release date event.
