I AM PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE UPCOMING RELEASE OF MY VERY OWN RECORD, DISTORTED HYMNS!!!

Alone Records, a fantastic record label based out of Spain, will be issuing Distorted Hymns on CD/Vinyl/Download on November 3rd on their Bonehouse Records imprint!

I wrote 11 new songs for Distorted Hymns with some very special guests.

First up, my old friends, Ron & Russell Mael of Sparks contribute to two tracks on the record: “Abra Cadaver” and “Blind, Emerald Eyes.” 

The lovely Lisa Ronson, daughter of the legendary Mick Ronson (guitarist for David Bowie), does a smashing duet with me on “I Got Your Back.”

My old band mate and good friend, Henry Rollins sings on “Arrogant Girl” and it will rip your head off!

Musician/actor, Jason Schwartzman, star of tons of great tunes and films, contributes cowbell, that’s right, COWBELL to my song, “Don’t Taser Me, Bro!”

Record producer/engineer for Queen and ELO, Mack, did a phenomenal mix of my song, “I Want More”.

Brian Kehew, known for his work with The Moog Cookbook, The Who and author of Recording The Beatles, did some splendid guitar/keyboard work.

Finally, my band mates in my new band, The Gemini Thieves: my brother, Stephan Junca (Billy Talbot Band- of Neil Young’s Crazy Horse fame) played drums and Erik Colvin (Neuromance) played guitar and keyboards respectively.

I WILL ALSO BE TOURING IN SPAIN STARTING IN LATE OCTOBER WITH MY NEW BAND, THE GEMINI THIEVES! I had a blast touring in Spain many times with Mother Superior and it will be great to return.

Marcus Blake & the Gemini Thieves’ Electric Deco Tour starts in late October and continues through November with a stop on Nov. 3rd at the Serie Z Festival in Jerez de la Fronteria: https://www.facebook.com/SerieZFestival . Tickets are on sale now!
