Marillion’s Mark Kelly announces first album of his solo project ‘Marathon’

Releases first single ‘Amelia’ ‘Mark Kelly’s Marathon’ to be released November 27th

Mark Kelly, keyboarder of progressive rock flagship Marillion, had something in his pipeline for over 30 years – the result: a brand-new prog-rock project called “Mark Kelly’s Marathon” which will be released on November 27th.

Together with Guy Vickers, Oliver M. Smith (vocalist), Pete “Woody” Wood (guitar,) John Cordy (guitar), Henry Rogers (drums) and his nephew Conal Kelly (bass), Mark Kelly turned his vision into reality. Marillion bandmate Steve Rothery also joined the band and contributed the lead guitar to the song “Puppets”.

During the Marillion Couch Convention last weekend, Mark Kelly first introduced his loyal fans to this new project after releasing the first single “Amelia” on Friday.

The Couch Convention also marked the date of the premiere of the official video to the song which has been filmed at the Real World Studios, studio of no other than Peter Gabriel himself.

“Mark Kelly’s Marathon” will be available as a Limited and Numbered CD+DVD Digipak (incl. the Marathon “Real World Session”), LP Gatefold, CD Digipak and Digital on November 27th, 2020 on earMUSIC.
