An inimitable voice in popular American music and always a huge drawcard in Australia, Mark Lanegan will capitalise on the buzz created by his latest record Gargoyle with highly anticipated shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney this September.

Released last year, Gargoyle is Lanegan’s 10th solo studio album and sits proudly amongst a discography that winds its way from nascent grunge and stark acoustic balladry through serpentine guitar mastery, Krautrock experimentations, siren songs and jagged ocean-floor blues.

It’s a collection of records always proudly punctuated by something Pitchfork once touted as “one of the most potent voices of a generation”.

Gaining fame as the frontman of legendary Seattle rockers The Screaming Trees (a band heavily associated with the likes of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains), Lanegan’s turbulent personal life has always seemed to inform the brilliant output he can conjure.

Innovative, versatile and truly rare, his work has been profoundly influential on several generations of musicians. As a renowned collaborator, he has shared the studio with the likes of Moby, UNKLE, Warpaint, Massive Attack and Queens of the Stone Age and has also released records with Belle and Sebastian’s Isobel Campbell, Guns n’ Roses’ Duff McKagan and The Twilight Singers’ Greg Dulli, amongst a multitude of others.

Continuing in this spirit, Gargoyle was written with English musician Rob Marshall and long time cohort and producer Alain Johannes. Tracks like Beehive and Emperor startle in showcasing new musical sides of Lanegan.

Rolling along with familiar psychedelic rhythms, they dabble with almost cheery vocals. Are they a mirage? Who knows? One thing is for sure - they’ll make for one hell of a live show.

No stranger to Australian audiences, Mark Lanegan never fails to delight both long time followers and curious new devotees. His voice, once described as “scratchy as a three-day beard yet as supple and pliable as moccasin leather” is essential.
