MARK LANEGAN BAND – Back With Striking Single ‘NOCTURNE’ From Upcoming Album…

Fresh sonic impulses for your ears…




Eternal troubadour MARK LANEGAN and his band will release new album GARGOYLE
on 28th April via Heavenly Recordings. All details here. The 10-track LP features guest appearances from long-time collaborators Josh Homme, Greg Dulli and Duke Garwood.

In a press message Lanegan says about the new record: “I definitely feel like I’m a better songwriting than I was 15 years ago. I don’t know if I’m just kidding myself or what, but it’s definitely easier now to make something that is satisfying to me. Maybe I’m just easier on myself these days, but it’s definitely not as painful a process, and therefore I feel I’m better at it now. But part of the way that I stay interested in making music is by collaborating with other people. When I see things through somebody else’s perspective it’s more exciting than if I’m left to my own devices.”

Here’s first stunning single NOCTURNE

New LP ‘Gargoyle’ out 28th April…



Daydreaming before my PC screen my brain was just looking for a ‘Track Of The Day’ while Mark Lanegan Band was barking on the stereo in the back. No need to look further. Also I saw The Man playing live in Belgium last month. He still is the darkest blues rock crooner of all time. On ‘Sad Lover’ Lanegan turns up the speed. This mighty buzzing killer track was originally released on his 2014 vinyl-only EP ‘No Bells On Sunday’. The EP was later added as a bonus-cd to his most recent and excellent ‘Phantom Radio’ album.
Let’s Roll !…
