Mark Lanegan Band’s latest album ‘Gargoyle’, his tenth was released to wide critical acclaim and entered the UK chart at Number 22 on Friday.

To celebrate, here is a remix from Andrew Weatherall of the latest single ‘Beehive’:

Weatherall say’s of the remix, “I’ll be honest, when executing a remix usually the first thing to go is the vocal track. There are however exceptions. Mr Lanegan singing ‘lightning coming out of the speakers’ (or let’s face it Mr Lanegan singing full stop) is one of those exceptions.”

Critical acclaim for ‘Gargoyle’:

“Bringing diverse soundscapes and lyrical moods into a hugely enjoyable whole, Lanegan ascends to goth-synth perfection… A triumph.” MOJO – ★★★★★

“A bravura statement from an artist still sounding fresh three decades into his career.” The Observer – ★★★★★

“Think Depeche Mode at their darkest and pitch-shift Dave Gahan’s voice down an octave, and you’re close to the appeal of Gargoyle, Lanegan’s darkly compelling new album.”
Uncut – 8/10

“Glorious… Lanegan is in the form of his career.” The Guardian – ★★★★

“Gargoyle takes the electronic bedrock of its predecessor and kicks it up a notch.” Q – ★★★★

“Cinematic musical backdrops frame Lanegan’s voice in a noir landscape… Arguably Lanegan’s most accomplished album yet.” Louder Than War – 9/10

“Gargoyle picks up on the electro–noir of its predecessors… Lanegan is on daring and seductive form throughout.”
Classic Rock – 8/10

“Gargoyle has an early 80s UK electronic rock feel, with Lanegan’s rough vocal rasp sawing through musical timbres reminiscent of what was being played out at Manchester’s Factory.” The WIRE

“Another excellent album… While the imagery remains predominantly dark, there are glints of optimism and lightness of spirit peeking through some songs.” The I Paper – ★★★★

“Lanegan’s solo career has been consistently engaging, showcasing the artistic freedom of a man following his instincts.” Total Guitar – ★★★★

“A menacing Krautrock air pervades, with Nocturne a wonderful fog of driven reverb–heavy guitars, propulsive bass and Lanegan’s weathered vocals.” Long Live Vinyl – ★★★★

“A menacing Krautrock air pervades, with Nocturne a wonderful fog of reverby guitars, propellant bass and Lanegan’s weathered vocals.” Guitar & Bass – 9/10
