FIRST LISTEN: NOISEY DEBUTS THE MARCUS KING BAND’S NEW ALBUM CAROLINA CONFESSIONS, OUT FRIDAY

The Marcus King Band - Carolina Confessions

Ahead of this Friday’s album release, Noisey has shared a stream of The Marcus King Band’s highly anticipated new album Carolina Confessions (Fantasy Records). Produced by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton), Carolina Confessions finds Marcus hitting a new creative peak as he grapples with the complications of family, forgiveness, mental health and new-found freedom. 

Noisey writer Will Schube hails the Southern gothic epic as “astounding and triumphant, a gut-punch and nut-kick,” and you can stream it in full at VICE‘s site: LINK

Turning to producer Dave Cobb and recorded in Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, Carolina Confessions showcases Marcus’ dazzling songwriting ability as well as his matchless guitar chops reinforcing the band’s emergence as one of the most exciting new arrivals in American music.

From their recent searing performance on CONAN to their Top 10 placement at Americana radio, the past several weeks alone foretold Marcus’ rise as he graduates from “one of music’s next great guitarists” (Washington Post) to a distinctive, emotionally cutting songwriting presence.

This week, the band breaks from their buzzed about sold-out headlining tour to stage their destination music festival, The Marcus King Band Family Reunion in Black Mountain, North Carolina. Scheduled for this Friday and Saturday, October 5th and 6th, the festival will feature sets from The Revivalists, Nikki Lane, Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Chuck Leavell (Allman Brothers, Rolling Stones), and more.

Praise for The Marcus King Band

“A Southern rocker in the classic sense, evoking memories of the soul-singing Gregg Allman one minute and his guitar-god brother, Duane, the next.” 

Rolling Stone

“Tenacious and vulnerable…The next time someone says to you that rock is dead, tell them to look no further than this King.” – NPR Music / World Cafe

“Marcus King has well established himself as a six-string hotshot with hundreds of incendiary live performances” – Billboard

“One of the most promising young musicians to emerge in recent years.” – San Diego Union Tribune
