The new album has been receiving fantastic reactions from the press, with Louder Than War calling it "a real return to form", while Prog Magazine said that "hugeness, at last, should beckon"
X: The Godless Void and Other Stories was produced by ...Trail's own Conrad Keely alongside engineer Charles Godfrey (Sinkane, of Montreal, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Work on the new album began in earnest in 2018 after Keely returned home to Austin following five years in Cambodia, rejoining fellow founding member Jason Reece. As a result, the album sees Keely detailing "the sadness of moving away from a place that I loved," while also taking inspiration from Steven Pressfield's book The War Of Art to face his own demons regarding the creative process. "I feel like I'm writing pop music," he says, "it's just not Top 20 pop. "It's the pop music I wish was on the radio, the pop music I would've grown up with."
