...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead To Headline 2008 Fun Fun Fun Fest
According to TrailofDead.org (Trail of Dead's fansite), ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead will be headlining one of the days for this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest. Austin's third annual Fun Fun Fest will take place on the weekend of November 8-9 at Waterloo Park.
Singer Conrad Keeley had this to say about this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest.
"We co-headlined the Siren Festival with Death Cab for Cutie a few years ago, but other than that we haven't had many real oppurtunites to top a high-profile bill like this before. It's a bit comforting to know we can be out of the limelight for such an extended period of time and still have a certain amount of pull in the industry, especially away from Interscope. Obviously we'll be up for it. It's an oppurtunity to re-introduce ourselves to a larger, more open-minded audience. Who knows, this could turn out to be the catalyst for a new era in our careers."Trail of Dead are currently in the studio and looking to release a new album later this year. It's set to be the first release on the band's own, Justice Records imprint, Richter Scale Records.
"I mean, our friends Spoon headlined the festival in 2006 and then had a top 10 record. So how hard could it be?"
