Mark is headed to Europe for some shows (including a few with Dan Sartain, as well as Dum Dum Girls). It will be his first time in Europe on tour as the one-man band 'BBQ' since maybe 2006 (?), and certainly his first tour there since the release of the now-out-of-print '$' album.
By the end of 2011, expect to hear roughly 30 new songs. They will be released on two staggered albums by In The Red Records (Los Angeles), as well as on a few 7" records.
Among the many, many new hit originals are cover version of songs by Ultravox, Lee Maye, Gene Vincent, The Stains and some others.
Special guest musicians include Jared Swilley and Cole Alexander of The Black Lips, King Khan, Erin from The Spits, Danny from the Gories, and some other folks.
One new song, 'Calloused Hands', is already available at www.marksultan.com,
while more will be added randomly as time goes on.
The updated site includes a 60+ song player of Mark's works over the years, as well as videos and other crap.
