Sky Cries Mary Lyrics Follow
Sky Cries Mary is an American psych rock/cosmic music group from Seattle, Washington, formed in the late 1980s by Roderick Wolgamott and Ben Ireland.
Early band influences included European Industrial music bands like Einstürzende Neubauten, COIL, Test Department, and 1970’s glam/punk artists like Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie.
Notable band alumni include Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow of The Posies, vocalist Anisa Romero, Michael Cozzi Shriekback, Jon ‘Juano’ Davison (later of Yes and Glass Hammer), and Gordon Raphael (producer for The Strokes).
In 2016, founding members Wolgamott and Ireland premiered a new line up including Ron Nine (Love Battery) on guitar, and Kurt Danielson (TAD) on bass. They performed live at Sunset Tavern on November 26, 2016.
In 2017, the band co-wrote and digitally released ‘War Song’, a new single co-written by Wolgamott and Ron Nine. The band recorded several new songs, at Sound House with Jack Endino, who engineered Nirvana’s Bleach, and Soundgarden’s Badmotorfinger.
Later in 2017, Jack Endino along with Curt Eckman (The Walkabouts), and Kevin Whitworth (Love Battery) joined the group. In September 2017, they headlined at Psychfest in Seattle.
Together, the band recorded more songs, including re-releases of some very early Sky Cries Mary material.
A new album, Thieves and Sirens includes songs from their most recent collaborations and was released digitally in 2017.
A vinyl and CD release of Thieves and Sirens is expected in 2018 following live appearances in March and April.
