Of course Austin's own And You Will Know Us By The Trail Dead will be back at Emo's on Saturday. But what they are doing after that is pretty interesting, check it out....
[Trail of Dead]
Adult Swim's virtual death metal band Dethklok of the hit show Metalocalypse is gearing up for their college tour with ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. The show will be hitting several colleges, three of which are open to the public: University of New Mexico, UC Berkeley, and University of Colorado, Boulder.
Dethklok's Gorillaz-style show will feature a set-long animated projection of the virtual band performing while the actual live band (including legendary metal drummer Gene Hoglan of Death, Dark Angel, and Strapping Young Lad as well as Metalocalypse creator Brendon Small) playing behind. As if that's not enough reason to go to one of these shows, Guitar Hero III demos will be available for attendees.
