The Mark Of Cain Announce First Tour In Six Years

The Mark of Cain’s first national tour in six years will take place as planned in March.
In addition to their appearance at the Golden Plains Festival in Meredith, Victoria, on March 10, the band will play five shows – in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Coolangatta, Perth and their hometown of Adelaide.
The tour looked to be in doubt due to drummer John Stanier’s touring commitments with the Mike Patton-fronted Tomahawk, who are touring for Soundwave in February/March. Speaking to FasterLouder last week, frontman John Scott said there may come a time when Stanier – who also plays in Battles – could no longer tour with the band.
“John and I have discussed this many times,” Scott said. “He’s said, ‘There may come a time when I can’t support the band in shows’, which would be a great pity. And any time in the past when I’ve said, ‘Shit, I wanna tour and it’s not able to happen’, he’s made sure that he’s available. But it’s always been a friendship where he’s said, ‘You know, there may be a time when I can’t do it.’”
The tour is in support of Songs Of The Third and Fifth, The Mark Of Cain’s fifth studio LP. The album was recorded in Adelaide over a two-year period with frontman John Scott and Feel Presents’ Tim Pittman producing. It’s out tomorrow (November 2). More details here.
