Check Out: Mark Lanegan Band – “The Gravedigger’s Song”

Advertisement

    As previously reported, Mark Lanegan Band returns in February with Blues Funeral, the group’s first LP since 2004’s Bubblegum. Recorded with Alain Johannes in Hollywood, CA, the 12-track effort includes familiar faces like that of Josh Homme, Greg Dulli, and Jack Irons. Our first hymn from the wake is the aptly titled “The Gravedigger’s Song”, which actually sounds more like old school Queens of the Stone Age than the actual band has in years. It chugs along with some sewer-stained guitar lines, and the surrounding instrumentation is straight out of highway rock ‘n’ roll. Check it out below, in addition to the LP’s tracklist and next year’s overseas tour dates. There’s aplenty.

    Blues Funeral is out February 7th via 4AD. Pre-order your own copy on CD or vinyl.
