Described as “one of the most innovative of their era,” iconic Canadian artists Martha and the Muffins have announced the release of their new album, Marthology: In and Outtakes — available November 5th!
Groundbreaking from inception, Martha and the Muffins formed during the early days of Toronto’s punk / new wave / art pop scene in 1977. They were the first Canadian band to sign to a UK label, recording their debut, Metro Music, at England’s The Manor Studio, and would go on to tour and receive more than three decades worth of critical acclaim worldwide.
Founding members Martha Johnson and Mark Gane revisited their extensive archives recently, selecting 12 rare or never-before-heard singles, B-sides, and unreleased songs for what has ultimately become Marthology: In and Outtakes — their ninth album, and first in eleven years.
Spanning 35 years of recordings, the 12-track compilation includes previously limited releases of “Summer Of Song,” “Big Day,” and “Do You Ever Wonder,” as well as the 30th anniversary version of JUNO-winning single, “Echo Beach.” In addition, the CD includes the bonus track, “I Am Vertical!”, a demo recorded in 1988 but never released.
Marthology: In and Outtakes is available November 5th, 2021.
