On Tuesday 2nd October, alternative rock stars MARK LANEGAN AND DUKE GARWOOD team up at Komedia Bath for an evening of spectral, sinewy rock/blues music “for anyone who’s long since left the crossroads”.
Celebrating the release of their second album ‘With Animals’, rock/blues stars Mark Lanegan and
Duke Garwood will be hitting Komedia Bath this October as part of their brand new UK tour!
Having established themselves as passionate, talented solo artists, Mark Lanegan and Duke Garwood joined forces for 2013’s debut album ‘Black Pudding’. Now, in celebration of their new album ‘With Animals’ (releasing 24th August), the duo are embarking on a brand new UK tour, hitting Komedia Bath this October.
Known for their spectral, sinewy musical style, the band describe their work as “soul music for anyone who’s long since left the crossroads”, with songs which are as much about the spaces between notes as the heartfelt melodies and stunning guitar-work.
“Over the years, we’ve recorded together and apart. This time, I started this record alone, with many animals as company,” says Garwood. “It flowed, I set to work and out it came. Our music is instinct, there is not much talking about it, just creating. I think that if you are at peace with your work, and feeling it right, it flows, and can feel ‘easy’. Music isn’t meant to be hard. Though sometimes it can burn you to ashes. Making music for a singer, so they can inhabit it with a song means hitting the right soul buttons. There is no hit without a miss. It is a healing record, for us the makers, and for the listeners. It grows natural. We are gardeners of sonic feelings.”
While ‘Black Pudding’ put Garwood’s mercurial guitar centre stage, ‘With Animals’ is constructed from a different set of tools. Analogue and dust flecked, it sounds like Lanegan and Garwood have been holed up in a ’60s recording studio while the apocalypse rages outside. Tracks sit on loops that sounds like they’re straight out of There’s a Riot Goin On while sparse melodies nod in the direction of British electronic producers like Burial or Boards of Canada. which is not to say it sounds like any of those things – this is a weird world all of their own design.
