After the success of Claps For Caroline, Imminence Records has found the next big thing out of Hungary in the form of The Tumor Called Marla. The band blends male and female vocals in with ear-pleasing electronica post-hardcore to quickly catch the ear of whoever is listening. This blend has helped the band quickly grow their fanbase and catch the attention of Imminence Records. Male vocalist András Gerő had this to say on the signing, “It’s a great honor and also a positive feedback, because it means we’re doing something that is worth to be international. We really want all the people with ears to go in with hearts wide open to take in our thoughts.”
The band will be releasing their self-recorded label debut, entitled Trance, in late November with András speaking on the lyrical content of the EP by saying, “The main concept is about humanity, whose members are commuting from one extreme to the other like a pendulum, and that’s why they can’t find their place of peace. Usually people are attending to everything else instead of their hearts and soul. Trance is a five part story that we’d like to share with you in a modern, exciting, philosophical, and a disturbing atmosphere. The listeners can join us to take a deep trip underneath our minds.”
The band has recently released the music video for their second single of the EP, entitled “A Different Tension,” on YouTube. The music video followed the releases of the band’s debut single, “Mute,” that as released as a lyric video and a guitar playthrough. Going forward the band has several plans that they are working to set it motion with András explaining, “We’d really like to rock a lot of good places and to demonstrate an audiovisually stunning show for everyone. We’re also planning to record an LP in 2016, so we won’t stop for a minute after the EP has been released.”
About The Tumor Called Marla:
Forming in Budapest, Hungary in 2014 after male vocalist András Gerő’s last band Babes In The Wood broke up, The Tumor Called Marla was quickly filled out by female vocalist Anna Burai, bassist Geri Kneif, guitarist Attila Lauter, guitarist Krisztián Farkas, and drummer Roland Jegyinák. Their style of music blending electronica and post-hardcore together is an ear pleasing, foot tapping inducing final product that has quickly gained them a local following before catching the attention of Imminence Records. They would go on to announce their signing with the label in early October before releasing their debut EP, entitled Trance, on November 27th.
