Ex-Screaming Trees main dude Mark Lanegan released his first album for Beggars Banquet last month in the form of the 15-track Bubblegum. Actually, the official release is from "Mark Lanegan Band", but he wrote all of the songs. Later this month, Mr. Lanegan will embark on quick, nine-date tour of the US. He'll warm up with solo performances in Chicago, Detroit, Philly and NYC before enlisting the help of a full band for shows along the West coast.
Beggars has a mini site that some of you might be interested in checking out. There's audio, video and a contest happening there. Peep it here.
