When Märvel came out of their last studio session for the critically acclaimed “In The Sunshine Factory”, the band had already started talking about the next project. The band wanted a break from the normal routine and also a quick follow up to “Sunshine…”. The idea to put together a second cover album was born even earlier, and being Märvel it couldn’t just be a straight forward here-are-some-rock-songs-we-like-that-you-all-heard-before-and-that-are-better-in-its-original-version cover album. It had to be something other, something a bit more weird. As a band that enjoys a lot of music from different genres, and that embraces the odd and the awkward, what better way to approach it than exposing some of their guilty pleasures in all its glory! And in doing so also showing that good songs are hidden everywhere, and stating that if you’re a person that can only appreciate music packaged as rock, here’s a package for you!
Now, all the songs on the album can not be considered guilty pleasures, some are probably so just right you don’t even know it yet, and some are at least bordering on cool. Some are just stuck in the wrong era. Nevertheless, the title sums up the gist.
The upcoming album is released by The Sign Records in the spring of 2019. The album’s titled ’Guilty Pleasures’ and contains 10 great songs that have all been given the Märvel rock ‘n’ roll upgrade. We know you like the tracks even if you perhaps don’t admit to it yet. The band is currently hosting a rock quiz on their facebook page counting down the days up until they expose their next GUILTY PLEASURE – with a new song released the first Friday in each month up until the album release. Märvel released their latest album ’At the Sunshine Factory’ in 2017 on The Sign Records. Before that the band have had successes with albums such as ’Warhawks of War’ (Killer Cobra Records), ’Hadal Zone Express’ (KCR) and ‘The Hills Have Eyes’ (KCR). The band is today one of the most popular rock ‘n’ roll experiences a stage can host in Scandinavia.
A guilty pleasure is something, such as a film, a television program or a piece of music, that one enjoys despite feeling that it is not generally held in high regard, or is seen as unusual or weird. For example, a person may secretly like a movie knowing that the movie is poorly made and generally seen as “not good.” (Märvelpedia)
