Mark Lanegan Band - Sad Lover

MARK LANEGAN BAND has rolled out his tour machine in support of his latest album, "Phantom Radio". The iconic alt rocker and his merry backing band has a bunch of dates for Europe, see below. According to a press release, this outing serves as LANEGANs first with a full band since mid-2012. Tomorrow he lands in Stockholm for a show at Debaser Strand. A show I sadly will miss as I off to Gothenburg for the first step in the "Swedish Eurovision machine" Melodifestivalen. But if you have nothing to do, go and see it I am almost sure it will be a magical evening.

MARK LANEGAN (born November 25, 1964) is an American alternative rock musician and singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Ellensburg, Washington, Lanegan began his musical career in 1984, forming the grunge band SCREAMING TREES with Gary Lee Conner, Van Conner and Mark Pickerel. During his time in the band, Lanegan also started a low-key solo career and released his first solo studio album, The Winding Sheet, in 1990. Since 1990, he has released a further six studio albums and has received critical recognition and moderate commercial success.

In an interview with The Quietus, Lanegan stated that he used a phone app called FunkBox to write the drum parts on some of the songs.

Todays tune "Sad Lover" is taken from the ninth studio album "Phantom Radio" is by MARK LANEGAN, performing as the "MARK LANEGAN BAND". It was released on October 21, 2014 on Vagrant Records.
