Mark Crozer, guitarist in the recently-reformed The Jesus & Mary Chain, founder of UK “supergroup” International Jetsetters and a solo singer/songwriter in his own right, has branched out with a new debut self-titled full-length from his new band, Mark Crozer & The Rels. The album, which promises to span the rock gamut from riff driven to surfy 60′s to psychedelia and direct, sweet ass pop (a “lighter JAMC” if you will), was recorded both in the US and UK, and will be released via Planting Seeds on September 18th.
The album follows Crozer’s recent time with The Jesus & Mary Chain, (including an appearance on the band’s recent studio track -“All Things Must Pass”(“Upside Down: The Best Of The Jesus And Mary Chain) and the band’s world tour). There are U.S. dates to come as well, the first of which are based in North Carolina, since the UK musician has recently moved to that fine state.
All songs written by Mark Crozer (SOCAN); except + by Mark Crozer & Jason Hart (ASCAP).
