Kal Marks bring Universal Care to tour (2018)

Kal Marks release their new album, Universal Care, on February 23 release via Exploding In Sound Records.
Kal Marks will bring Universal Care to a town near you this Spring, with dates kicking off in March and a full U.S. tour to follow in April and May. All dates can be found below. In addition to their upcoming tour, the band are in desperate need of a new van and have launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund their new ride. Nearly half way to their goal, the band are offering everything from records and shirts to personal guitar, bass, and drum lessons, and the power to change the band’s name..
Universal Care is about asking questions and seeking answers during a tumultuous time for the band and the world. The future of the band was unclear following their last album, and Universal Care is a response to those strange and uncertain times. Recorded at Boston’s Mad Oak Studios with Miranda Serra G and mastered by James Plotkin (Old Man Gloom, Windhand, Thou), it’s a heavy record that spans the spectrum of Kal Marks’ dynamic sound from hazy folk to blistering noise rock, a reflection of Carl Shane’s (guitar/vocals) spirit and emotions. The album is a reaction to the death of a close friend, but it’s also a reflection of the seriously dark times in our country. The band are baring their souls and taking chances, creating their most compelling album in the process.
