Heavenly Recordings presents Gargoyle, the new album from the Mark Lanegan Band. The 10-track LP features guest appearances from long-time collaborators Josh Homme, Greg Dulli and Duke Garwood. The contributions of English musician Rob Marshall (who co-wrote six songs) fit perfectly with the direction Lanegan had been pondering: in essence, a more expansive progression from the moody Krautrock-influenced electronica textures of his two previous albums, Blues Funeral and Phantom Radio.

While sharing roots with its two predecessors, on Gargoyle there's a significant up-shift in the swaggering powerlode of such keynote songs as "Nocturne" and "Beehive," while the lyrics' tonal palette is more varied. The album title comes from a lyric in "Blue Blue Sea"  – "Gargoyle perched on gothic spire" – and was chosen for its hint of self-deprecation.

"I'm most proud of the songs that are atypical to stuff that I've done in the past," Lanegan says. "So I really like Old Swan, because it's an expression of positivity, which is completely anti-anything I've done before!"
