Conrad Keely has been fronting …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead for just about two decades, and he’s finally embarking on a solo career. I’m surprised it took this long! Keely will release his solo debut, Original Machines, at the beginning of next year. The songs for the record were written while traveling primarily through Cambodia, where he currently lives, and on tour with Trail Of Dead, setting up a makeshift recording studio in the back of their tour bus. Today, he’s shared the subdued, stripped back “In Words Of A Not So Famous Man” as the lead single. Check it out below, plus see some headlining solo UK dates over the next few days.
