Written in the haunted basement of a converted church and inspired by a ghostly apparition of Elvis, â€˜INVINCIBLE CRIMINALâ€™ is the newest full length from musical genius MARK MALLMAN. Available early this August on BADMAN RECORDING CO (My Morning Jacket, Starf*cker), it will feature longtime friend and HOLD STEADY singer CRAIG FINN contributing vocals on “You’re Never Alone in New Yorkâ€, and CLOUD CULT violinist SHANNON FRID duets on “In These Times of Harsh Economy”, a chilling ballad about John Dillenger’s Lady in Red, Anna Sage.
“In the past three years, I’ve tasted death one too many times to let a minute slip through my fingers anymore. Don’t be confused, the Invincible Criminal isn’t me, it’s time,â€ he says.
Mark Mallman is known as many things: The Fastest Piano in the Midwest, Ruby Isle front man, an insanely gifted performer who has toured the USA a staggering 23 times, the notable Mr Serious, and as the World Record holder for Longest Song Performed (Marathon 2 at 52 hrs!). First and foremost, Mark is an amazing songwriter who pens lyrics like an existentialist writer and as a must-see performer, he plays the piano with the type of ferocity that others take to playing an electric guitar leaving live audiences in awe at every single one of his shows.
