Humanist preps guest-filled debut (listen to “Shock Collar” ft. Dave Gahan)


Humanist, the rock project from guitarist and frequent Mark Lanegan collaborator Rob Marshall, will release its self-titled debut album on February 21 via Ignition. For it, Marshall has enlisted a ton of notable guest vocalists, including Mark Lanegan, Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), Mark Gardener (Ride), Carl Hancock Rux (David Holmes, Portishead), John Robb (The Membranes), Joel Cadbury (UNKLE), Ilse Maria, Ron Sexsmith and Jim Jones (The Jim Jones Revue, Thee Hypnotics). The new single and video is “Shock Collar” which features David Gahan who says, “It was a pleasure to be asked to be a part of Rob’s ‘Humanist’ project. Mark Lanegan asked me, and I liked the idea immediately…It’s a beast! I went for the vocal, with the visual of driving fast on an empty highway…We shot the video over a couple of days in New York, and it all came together.” Watch that below.

Marshall has announced Humanist UK tour dates for March. Those dates are listed, along with the full tracklist of the album, below.
