THE MARK OF CAIN 'Grey-11' New Single and Tour!

To celebrate the release of a new single, Grey-11, from 2012's Songs Of The Third & Fifth, The Mark Of Cain have announced their first national tour since March 2013. The tour will take in the usual hot spots and also includes a return to Newcastle (for the first time since 2002) and a trip to Hobart for the first time in almost 20 years.

Grey-11 is the third single from TMOC's much lauded 5th album Songs Of The Third & Fifth and features Henry Rollins - recently of Double J DJ fame - in a short spoken word piece. Says John Scott, frontman and song writer for TMOC of the collaboration:

I wrote about someone coming back from a bad conflict anywhere, and that the thought of coming back to their family or girlfriend or boyfriend is what kept them going thru Hell, only to find they've even betrayed by the very people they relied on - and who else would get that but Rollins who tours war zones and visits combat casualties in Europe and the US. He wrote a middle verse that was spoken and I'd designed would be something I did or he could do if interested, and it turned out he was interested. Rollins gets us, he knows our shit. When called he responded….. John Scott

The relationship between The Mark Of Cain and Henry Rollins started way back in 1990 when TMOC played support to Rollins Band in Adelaide and was fostered when Rollins mixed the band's breakout album Ill At Ease. Henry has continued to support TMOC so far as releasing their debut album Battlesick on his own 2.13.61 label and most recently playing the band on his weekly LA based radio show.

Grey-11 (edited version) will be released as a free download available to those already on The Mark Of Cain's mailing list and all new subscribers. Simply sign-up via http://www.tmoc.com.au/contact-us/ and the download will be sent on August 11th.

For these live appearances The Mark Of Cain will again comprise brothers John & Kim Scott with boy-wonder Eli Green again taking the honours behind the drum kit.

There's not a dull moment in the 80 minute set and every song is delivered with raw, no bullshit intensity and power. During the encore The Mark Of Cain really ram home just how good they are with a trio of their strongest songs. Battlesick is amazing, the repetitive and hypnotic droning bass propelling the song as John Scott spits out the lyrics and Green smacks the hell out of his kit. - InPress 2013

Melbourne two-piece King Of The North will appear as special guests at most shows with further support from Wollongong's Bruce, Brisbane's Turnpike, Perth's Scalphunter and Hobart's Captives.

Live outings from The Mark Of Cain are rare so it’s inevitable that when they do tour all shows sell-out. Be the first in line when tickets go on sale Friday August 15th.
