At first blush, it seems like one of the many ridiculous and ridiculously entertaining lies ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead have told over their 17 years as a band, right up their with meeting as choirboys in church, their name being a Mayan reference, or the band hailing from Plano, TX. But it's no joke, no lie. In fact, ToD singer/guitarist Conrad Keely doesn't seem to do much joking anymore, so disgusted he is with the state of things. So when he says he lives in Cambodia now, and that the band's new sprawling, gorgeous, and powerful album Lost Songs, their eighth, (stream it here) was written and recorded in three weeks? Well, OK then.
