Kal Marks

Boston indie rockers Kal Marks will be releasing their first official full length album, Life Is Murder, next week (9/17) via Exploding In Sound/Sophomore Lounge/Midnight Werewolf, but they've now made the entire thing available to stream ahead of its release. Like we said, it's a great mix of '90s-style loud rock and weirder, Modest Mouse-y indie, and you can check it out (via Stereogum) below.

Kal Marks also have a ton of tour dates this year, including one in NYC on October 10 at Shea Stadium with a great lineup of LVL UP, Palehound, and Frankie Cosmos. The flyer for that show is below. Kal Marks also have two CMJ shows scheduled, including one at Cameo on 10/17 and the Exploding In Sound showcase at Silent Barn on 10/19 with Bad History Month, Grass Is Green, Ovlov, Palehound, Pile, Porches, Speedy Ortiz, and Two Inch Astronaut.

You can also catch Palehound and Frankie Cosmos together even sooner when they play Silent Barn on September 17, making for a great night of anti-folk-inspired indie.

All Kal Marks dates are listed, along with the album stream, below...
