THE MARCUS KING BAND SHARES THE EPIC “GOODBYE CAROLINA,” A NEW TRACK FROM THEIR FORTHCOMING ‘CAROLINA CONFESSIONS’ LP

The Marcus King Band - Carolina Confessions

MARCUS KING BAND FAMILY REUNION RETURNS TO NORTH CAROLINA OCT 5-6

AFTER BAND’S MONTH-LONG RUN OF 14 SOLD-OUT SHOWS

Today, The Marcus King Band releases “Goodbye Carolina,” the final instant grat track off ‘Carolina Confessions’, a stirring demonstration of how the 22-year-old bandleader and songwriter has become so much more than “one of music’s next great guitarists” (Washington Post). Grappling with the suicide of a close friend, the six-minute epic delves deep into themes of guilt and absolution and the solace that only escape can provide. Watch the video here. ‘Carolina Confessions’, the band’s third full length album, will be released on October 5th, 2018 via Fantasy Records.

Detailing the compelling story behind the song, Relix says “it’s on “another level, setting the tone for an emotion-packed offering featuring soaring vocals and guitar.”

Recorded at Nashville’s RCA Studio A and produced by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton), ‘Carolina Confessions’ has already earned The Marcus King Band new fans in Conan O’Brien, NPR Music, Billboard, and Rolling Stone, who called their recent late-night TV debut “revelatory.” Watch “Where I’m Headed” live on Conan here.

Currently on a month-long streak of 14 sold out dates – including their first-ever headlining stops in LA (two nights at Troubadour), San Francisco (Great American Music Hall), and San Diego (Belly Up) – The Marcus King Band will level up to bigger ballrooms and theatres in the coming months. As World Cafe’s Bruce Warren affirms, “the next time someone says to you that rock is dead, tell them to look no further than this King.”

On October 5th and 6th, The Marcus King Band will celebrate the album’s release in North Carolina with the second iteration of their own destination music festival and benefit, The Marcus King Band Family Reunion. Curated by King himself, the weekend brings The Revivalists, Nikki Lane, Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Chuck Leavell (Allman Brothers, Rolling Stones), and many more to Black Mountain’s Pisgah Brewing Company.
