Born in 2013 as the solo project of singer/guitarist/pianist Marco Agiro (Le Mood, the Killing Floor), Marco With Love has quickly matured into a band that embodies the diversity, DIY work ethic, and true essence of rock ‘n roll. Fast, rough around the edges, and slightly twangy, their sound has been compared to the Kinks and the New York Dolls and the band has commanded enough of a fan base to open recently for artists including Courtney Barnett, Lindi Ortega, and Devo.
Produced by Agiro and Anthony “Rocky” Gallo (Yeasayer, Common, the XX), Promised Land goes between ferocious grit and honky tonk shuffle on three speedy tributes to freewheeling rock ‘n roll abandon. While the EP’s original compositions highlight the band’s ability to add creativity and a modern swagger to its influences, Marco With Love shows deference for its roots by closing the record with a faithful cover of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ rebellious anthem “Anything That’s Rock ‘N Roll.
“The boys of Marco play pure, unadulterated, rock that has drawn lofty comparisons to Tom Petty, The Kinks, and The Ramones.” -Ear to the Ground
