Death On Mars / Bio

First the music......

It would be easy to say that Death On Mars is the end result of drives from Encinitas to the cultural mecca of El Cajon. However, it's difficult to put into words the inspiration caused by such rich fields of creativity. Some songs got their legs from the now disbanded ..In Between Days.. and other songs came from Chuck and BJ working with friends in the studio trying to develop ideas that just didn't seem to work in the past. Easy right? Also with the addition of Mike and Robb in 2011 things are getting bigger, better and if possible a little stranger (but in a good way). With that being said we hope you like what you hear now and what comes out in the future.

As for the name.............

The name came from a biography on Echo and the Bunnymen. Ian McCulloch was asked what he thought of the Martian rovers finding what looked to be the remains of life on Mars. His reply was that it only proved that there was death on Mars. Also the phrase can be heard in a lyric from the Echo song "Too Young To Kneel" off of the Evergreen album.
