Listen to “Today I Walked Down To The Tree, Read A Book, And When I Was Done, I Went Back Inside”

Kal Marks are sharing their latest single “Today I Walked Down To The Tree, Read A Book, And When I Was Done, I Went Back Inside,” the gorgeous finale to their upcoming album Universal Care. FLOOD Magazine premiered the song, shared, “Despite vocalist Carl Shane’s frequent lapse into Black-Franciscan snarls throughout Care, “Today I Walked…” proves an apt handle for the climax to this profoundly bored apocalypse: When the music lilts, swells, then pummels, Shane remains unflapped, delivering each line with a matter-of-fact recitation. It’s heavy, bleak, and oddly cathartic
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 in 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.

“Kal Marks decided to get uncomfortable by reeling the noise in. They hit a sweet spot in the process.” – NPR Music
“a stressful, tightly-clenched fist, seven minutes worth of knotted energy and anxiety-inducing tension. It’s a massive, squalling tour de force for all the musicians involved, frantic and frenetic and more unconventional than anything Kal Marks has done.” – Stereogum
