THE MARK OF CAIN - GREY-11 TOUR
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.
