ALBUM BIO: MARK SEYMOUR & THE UNDERTOW – ROLL BACK THE STONE 1985 – 2016 [LIBERATION MUSIC] (OUT FRIDAY 24 MARCH 2017)
MARK SEYMOUR & THE UNDERTOW
ROLL BACK THE STONE
1985 – 2016
Out 24 March 2017 through Liberation Music
“Roll back the Stone” was recorded over three nights in June 2016, in the Scrap Museum at Bakehouse studios Richmond, Victoria, Australia.
There are twenty four songs here, gleaned from thirty years of writing. Chosen for their structure and storytelling power, these are the ones that have stood up, beginning in 1985 to the current album ‘Mayday’ which was released last year. These twenty four essentially comprise the current set list, although there are a further six or seven we simply couldn’t cover on the night…
It is also a way to introduce the band, the ‘Undertow’ who have an uncanny knack of sounding big when there are only four on stage.
Together we plot a course through the rooms and halls of Australia, juggling this ever expanding list…
And by way of answering the question I’m sometimes asked when I’m waiting to pay for the petrol or standing at the check out,
“Didn’t you use to be in a band or whatever?”
“So.. what do you do now??”
Well, here’s the reveal…
