The Mountain Goats Share New Single Off Upcoming Album “Mark on You”

The Mountain Goats share “Mark on You,” a vengeance fantasy and the final single from their anticipated upcoming new album Bleed Out, out August 19th on Merge Records. Bleed Out, produced by Bully’s Alicia Bognanno, is a cinematic experience inspired by action movies from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Of the song, John Darnielle says, “‘Mark on You’ was the point where I knew where I was going in the writing of the album: songs with physical situations and palpable threats, something visceral for the tail end of lockdown. Producer Alicia Bognanno ran wild on this one, one of the first ones I sent her; she shapes the sound with an intensely sick riff over the chorus, teasing out the extensions and expanding the blasting surface. Sickest Wurster beat, all pocket no seams. Enjoy!”

The Mountain Goats are hitting the road on a full-band US fall tour that kicks off in late August, with Europe and the UK shows in November.
