Marnie Stern @ Panchos in 2011 (more by John Yingling)

As seen on BrooklynVegan, Marnie Stern is gearing up for the release of her new album, The Chronicles of Marnia, which is due out on March 19 via Kill Rock Stars. ...Marnia is her first without usual skin basher Zach Hill (who's a little busy with his band Death Grips), and instead features the equally bombastic Kid Millions (of Oneida) on percussion. So far, she has revealed two album tracks, called "Year of the Glad" and "East Side Glory," both of which seem to be centered around songwriting rather than guitar heroics. Although that's true, Stern's output hasn't gotten any less bonkers. Take a listen to both of her new songs at the bottom of this post.

Marnie will be touring in support of her hilariously-titled forthcoming LP this spring. That tour hasn't been announced in full, but we're proud to be presenting her Chicago show at the Empty Bottle on April 17 with Roomrunner and Mayor Daley. Tickets go on sale TODAY (2/11) at noon CST.

All known Marnie Stern tour dates and a couple of streams from ...Marnia are below...
