Eli Mardock Mardock To Release Debut Full-Length In July

Eli Mardock will release his full-length debut album, Everything Happens For The First Time Out, on July 9 via Paper Garden Records.  He recently premiered the track "Everything Is Good" from the album on Zimbio.

Having established himself as the vocalist of indie cult favorites Eagle Seagull (a band that Florence Welch championed and had toured with Tokyo Police Club and B-52’S), Eli Mardock’s penchant for dramatic and dream-like songs has earned him a legion of followers over the past decade. After the demise of that band, he released two highly regarded solo EPs (Feb 2013’s Hamburg and 2012’s NE Sorrow is Born). A video for the track “Cut Me Open” (off of NE Sorrow Is Born) helped the song receive over 18,000 digital downloads.

Mardock’s previously released EPs were the sole output of him playing all instruments and producing. With Everything Happens For The First Time, Mardock enlists the skills of former Eagle Seagull members, drummer Andrew Tyler (on six of the tracks) and keyboardist/violinist (as well as current wife) Carrie Butler. Mixing duties were also entrusted to Justin Gerrish (whose credits include Vampire Weekend and The Strokes).
