Heavyweights The Mark Of Cain return to Australian stages with a national tour in November and December, including a two-night stand in hometown Adelaide to raise money for a cancer charity.

“Having lost family members, friends and work colleagues to cancer in the past, I thought it was time to personally do something about cancer - not only to raise awareness, but also to do something directly to help fund cancer research,” TMOC singer-songwriter John Scott said. “As everyone knows, cancer doesn’t discriminate and we are all potentially only a doctor’s appointment away from hearing those life changing words."

The Adelaide charity dates (November 25 and December 2) for the Cancer Council are at the Enigma Bar. Scott will also ride in the Beat Cancer team in the Tour Down Under cycling event in January 2016. 

Despite the best intenmtion of playing more regularly, the national tour will be TMOC’s first since their 2013 and ’14 runs to promote their critical-fave “Songs Of The Third And Fifth” album.

Local acts Subtract S and InWoods will join The Mark Of Cain on the respective Adelaide shows. Elsewhere TMOC will be joined by a legion of some of the country’s best heavy hitters including Thorax, Making, Batpiss and Greig. Tickets for all shows go on-sale Monday 21st September.
