DOWNLOAD: Midnight Masses - Heaven (MP3)
"Oh Trail of Dead, you had me at the double drums. How do you prevent the incessant talking that goes on during shows? You play an intensely loud, ear-ringing set. Great energy from the crowd and the band. The new songs sounded great too and with the possible of exception of "Fields of Coal" all seemed to fit in nicely with their back catalogue." [Metro Distortion]"Brooklyn's Midnight Masses is the collaborative fruit of Autry Rene Fulbright and Jason Reece. Fulbright, a native of Atlanta, relocated to NYC in 2007 before joining noisy TV on the Radio cohorts Dragons of Zynth and clocking hours with Kanine indie rockers Shock Cinema. Reece, of course, mans the guitar in Austin, Texas' And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead. In Midnight Masses, the duo's songs are complimented by the work of Roger Sisters member Miyuki Furtago, Destiny Montague of Shock Cinema, Santogold touring guitarist Eric Rodgers, and Giselle Reiber."
Trail of Dead and Midnight Masses played Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday, and then Bowery Ballroom on Saturday (with The So So Glos), and are now on tour. More pictures from Saturday's show, TOD's setlist, and all tour dates, below...
