KickStarter for "Friends & Enemies" - The NEW Full Length Record!

Howdy, Ya’ll!

Wanted to let you know that we have officially launched our KickStarter campaign for “Friends & Enemies”, which is our NEW Full Length record, scheduled to release at the end of October!

KickStarter Campaigns are cool, because they allow you to be a part of the process of successfully funding this project to completion! You can do anything from pre-order the CD, to spend a day fly-fishing with Duane Mark, or even get the guitar that started it all!!!

Please visit www.kickstarter.ihateduanemark.com to check it out… and make sure tell your friends about it, after you have pre-ordered your copy! Know that we are thankful for your partnership and we can’t do this without you!

Hate me later, Friends & Enemies!

Another 4th on the Books...

Good morning, Ya'll!

It's back to work, America... or at least it is for me. But before I go off on how hard I have to work to make you people happy, I need to thank everybody that came out to Mission Tobacco Lounge on Wednesday night... I had WAY too much fun and I'm pretty sure a few of you did too!

I have a tour to finish booking and it's kicking my butt! In the beginning of August I'll be in:

Las Vegas, NV Salt Lake City, UT Cheyenne, WY Ft. Collins, CO Denver, CO Colorado Springs, CO Albuquerque, NM Flagstaff, AZ Barstow, CA

If you live in one of these cities and know of a great venue or want to host a house show, let me know! I have some of the shows already booked and soon I'll let you know where they'll be.

Thank you all for your love (or hate) and support... means the world to me! Oh, and remind me to tell you about the single we'll be releasing later this month! I'll see you on the road soon...

Hate me later, Friends and Enemies!

Pressing up new demos...

Not gonna make a big deal about it, but if anyone is interested, we'll ship a demo anywhere in the U.S. for a flat $5.00

You can put the money in my paypal.com account by entering the email address ihateduanemark@gmail.com in the "To:" box and selecting the "I'm paying for goods or services" option. Hit send... once you get to the next screen, scroll down and put "Demo CD" in the Subject line, along with your shipping address in the Message box... then hit the "Send Money" button one more time!

All done! We'll ship that booger to you as fast as we can!!!

This will hold you over until we release our single next month and the full length record this fall!!!

Hate me later, Friends and Enemies!

Too much fun in the California sun!

Howdy, All!

It was a busy week or so... Saturday, played at Killer B's BBQ and Bar - Santa Barbara... Sunday, played at Sculpterra Winery - Paso Robles... Monday, played at Bon Temps Creole Cafe - San Luis Obispo... Tuesday, did that thing people call a job, then rehearsed with the Copper Kings... Wednesday, played at Mission Tobacco Lounge in Riverside, with my favorite band ever (Reverend Red)... Thursday, did that thing people call a job again, then rehearsed with the Copper Kings... Friday, in the studio working on the new record (Twanger Studios)... Saturday, played at Gustos Bar in Barstow... Sunday, back in the studio for more torture!!!

Keep our friend, who is still in ICU, in your thoughts and prayers... especially his loved ones.

Before I sign out, I wanna throw out a BIG thanks to Matt Graham of Reverend Red... he has filled in as the drummer for the Copper Kings at the last few shows and done an AMAZAZING job!!!

So if you feel like I'm ignoring you, it's simply because you weren't at any of my shows!!! Come out next time, instead of sitting at home on Facebook!

Hate me later, Friends and Enemies!

Show in Scottdale. AZ tonight!

Playing at the Rogue Bar in Scottsdale tonight with Reverend Red and Instant Hobo! Come on out!!!

New Record - Drum Tracking!!!

Howdy Everyone!

The excitement at the Duane Mark Foundation is high as a kite!!! Today officially marked the start of tracking the new record!

Drums, drums, drums... and Eric was an ANIMAL!!! I mean, these drums are so big, I'm pretty sure they came in from Texas!

I'm ready to get this thing into your ears, minds, and hearts... it's is definitely our best work yet! Until then...

Hate me later, Friends and Enemies!
