Texas post-hardcore noisemakers …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead will revisit their 2002 opus Source Tags and Codes in a headlining show at Underground Arts on March 26th. The band had made considerable buzz in the indie-punk underground in the late 90s and early 00s, touring with The Dismemberment Plan and Queens of the Stone Age, as well as releasing well-received independent albums like Madonna; on Source Tags, the band made its major label debut and its hardest hitting record up to that point.

The band has released five albums in the time since; on its most recent outing, 2012’s Lost Songs, the track “Up To Infinity” was dedicated to Russian activist musicians Pussy Riot. They are reportedly working on a sequel of sorts to 2011’s Tao of the Dead, so new materials may be in the cards at the Underground Arts show, in addition to a revisit of Source Tags.  Joining them are openers La Femme and Midnight Masses; get tickets and information at the XPN Concert Calendar and watch the music video for Source Tags’ “Relative Ways” below.

Showtime is 8PM. Ticket prices here
