The band’s European tour will see them perform the whole of 1999’s ‘Madonna’ album, a cult-favourite amongst fans. The band comments of the tour: “Madonna was our first stab at the bigger picture. We wanted to reach Europe and the UK with this album. We knew that it could communicate our ideas there and people would get it more than America. This album helped create so many friendships all over the world. The music resonated and we are still grateful that folks love this record.”

Speaking about the as yet untitled new album, a release date for which has not been set, the band added: “Fever visions of other worlds beyond our own and loosely tied to the human condition. This is our new document. This is our new testament. Our Bukowskian faded cities of dust.  The Haunter reaping lost souls.  The American void in to the godless void gazing to the firmament.  In other words… It’s a gawd damn Trail of Dead record recorded deep in the heart of Texas.”
