And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead 

Wednesday, April 27, at The Granada.

When And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead was in Lawrence promoting Source Tags and Codes, the band destroyed its equipment before the show was even over. That album was pure adrenaline, and the mayhem fit the music. The band, however, scales back the recklessness on the new Worlds Apart. Instead of noisy feedback and throaty screams, orchestral interludes interrupt spiraling guitar riffs, amounting to something that's more prog than postpunk. The rebellious anger is still there, though. We're so fucked these days/We don't know who to hate and who to praise singer Conrad Keely reflects on "Worlds Apart." Even though Trail of Dead seems to have matured, fans should expect a performance no less chaotic than the previous frenzy -- but probably easier on the equipment.
