Propelling the entire world into a melodic vortex, Marquis of Vaudeville emits an extraordinary sound that spirals listeners on an utterly imaginative, musical merry-go-round. With imagination at its core, their theatrical flair intertwines progressive, carnival-esque, punk-cabaret stylings with timeworn elements of the old world and newfangled innovation. Dubbing their sound and style as “melodic mischief,” the band is thrilled to announce their forthcoming album, The Tragic Valentine will be out this Halloween, October 31st.
The band had this to say about the new record:
“The Tragic Valentine is essentially a tragic love story told through 13 songs – somewhat our own ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ with elements of mystery, magic, intrigue, & revolution. Although each song has an underlying theme that fits within the story, they also stand alone with their own individual meaning. The story ties in with the hourglass symbol that we’ve put together for the album cover (Artist: Senyphine). It represents love/loss, life/death, light/dark.”
Off the forthcoming album comes their new track, “The Dreaming”, which is a song depicting the human desire to find the love of one’s life veiled behind a telling of The Sandman. The band continues by stating:
“Picture two people, thousands of miles apart, staring up at the stars in the night sky and dreaming of finding one another, but never having met. Each knows the other is out there – but how to find them? This song is also a nod to the work of author Neil Gaiman and his series, The Sandman, which deals with bright-eyed Morpheus, creator & keeper of dreams, and his realm, The Dreaming, where all dreams dwell.”
