...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead Videos
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead have one of the best band names, like, ever. They also rock, which is more important. We grabbed some quality time with bassist Autry Fulbright II to discuss the new album Lost Songs. He was quick, to the point and markedly entertaining with his answers. Just like a band dude should be.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Probably still doing music :/
Do you have non-music skills/hobbies/talents? If so, what are they?
I love to cook. It's really therapeutic.
Pick ONE song from Lost Songs and share a writing/recording story - something we'd ONLY know because you shared it with us! Something colorful, intimate.
The music for the song "Catatonic" was written nearly a decade ago for a different project and never used. It could've ended up on another band's record or even our previous one, as there was a rough demo recorded during The Tao of the Dead sessions.
You recorded the album in Germany - can you share a little about that experience? How was it being so far from home? Best thing about it? Worst? Any down time to enjoy the sites/scenes/sounds?
It was a nice experience to escape our element and focus on making the record, with this cultural divide. Jason and I had some stuff stolen, including at least a dozen demo songs that are now lost forever.
...AYWKUBTTOD are eight albums deep. What keeps this fresh + exciting for you?
Will you find Lost Songs?
