THE MARK OF CAIN ‘TOUR OF DUTY’ 2015

The Mark Of Cain return to active service this November / December with their 2015 ‘Tour Of Duty’. The tour follows the bands return to live performance in 2013 following a seven year sabbatical from touring and an eleven year hiatus from recording via the release of the fifth album (and their fifth classic) Songs Of The Third And Fifth.

“The Mark of Cain’s fifth studio album sounds every bit as impactful and exciting as their first, which is no small feat given that 1989’s Battlesick is considered by many to be a classic. It’s the same old TMOC only leaner, meaner and amazingly after all these years, even more convincing. A career high point.” 4.5 stars Rolling Stone Magazine

Live too the band’s unique presence of brothers John and Kim Scott (on guitar / vocals and bass respectively) and young gun drummer Eli Green remains rock-solid, the band locked in with the same trademark intensity we have come to know and love (and be afraid of…)

There’s not a dull moment in the 80-minute set and every song is delivered with raw, no bullshit intensity and power. 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. LMA is both compelling and melancholy, and a scorching rendition of Point Man provides an awesome end to the show. – INPRESS MELBOURNE

Expect to hear material from right across the band’s 26 year recorded history, a history that has included collaborations and Australian firsts with Steve Albini, Henry Rollins, Franz Treichler, (The Young Gods), John Stanier (Helmet, Battles), Andy Gill (Gang Of Four) and more.

Its The Mark Of Cain, people, the best live band in the land. Don’t you dare miss it!
