THE BIG BEAT Song of the Week: Mark Lanegan Band – ‘Nocturne’

Kind of a no-brainer this week with the featured track. The one-time, um, Screaming Tree announced a new record (Gargoyle, due April 28) that features contributions from Josh Homme and Greg Dulli and shared a growly, awesome track from the forthcoming release. He has some tour dates lined up, but as of right now, they’re all in the UK. We hope to see him soon here in the States.

And now, for the rest of this week’s program…
