theMark are a difficult entity to describe. Known for their raw and chaotic live performances and original music, the Boston quintet has swept across the east coast and the internet, leaving fans and new friends in their wake.

Combining a rock sound, a punk attitude, and an experimental approach to songwriting, theMark has found it difficult to place their sound within any one genre and have heard comparisons across the musical spectrum. Their first full length album “The Catastrophist,” independently funded and released in May 2004, was widely praised for its intertwining guitar lines, incredible dancing bass, unique vocal style and memorable drum beats. Highlighted by poignant lyrics, infectious riffs, and catchy choruses, theMark let the music do the talking. In the live setting, audiences were thrilled by their manic energy and musical proficiency as well as an intense dedication to each and every listener.

In the beginning the group came together from states across the country—forming in 2002 as the five aligned in Boston, MA and began to create their signature sound with the release of their first CD/EP. Playing everywhere from basements to colleges to some of the most prestigious rock clubs in the region (such as The Middle East, TT the Bears, The Paradise, and The Avalon in Boston and The Knitting Factory and The Continental in NYC, etc), theMark have spread their music persistently and with great success in MA, NH, NY, ME, CT, RI, VT, NJ, and PA. They have also shared the stage with national acts like The Roots, Less Than Jake, New Found Glory and others.

With the release of their brand new CD/EP “Blackouts of Whitecaps” in September 2005, theMark have taken their unique sound to an all new level. Meticulously recorded and produced at the warehoused Magpie Sound Design in Dorchester, MA, listeners will be pleased to hear theMark’s most original piece of musical work to date.
