Dark Mark vs. Skeleton Joe is the collaborative duo of Mark Lanegan and Joe Cardamone of The Icarus Line. “The fact that it's not like anything either one of us have done before is what makes this so interesting for me,” says Lanegan. “When you have done as much stuff as Joe and I, you have to constantly search for the different and challenging to keep yourself engaged.” Joe adds, “I just wanted to make some instrumentals that I thought Mark’s voice would shine on, something hard with space for Mark to let go.”
The duo's debut 12" is out today and features two tracks: the especially gothy "Dark Mark Theme" and the near EBM/industrial "Skeleton Joe Manifesto." You can stream both sides of the 12" below and you can order the vinyl here.
