Brian Marquis, former guitarist of Boston hardcore outfit Therefore I Am and recent lighting strike survivor, has signed a deal with Equal Vision Records (currently home to the likes of We Came As Romans and Glass Cloud) as a solo artist.

“I am extremely excited to be teaming up with Equal Vision Records for my first solo full length. I feel confident that they know where I'm coming from and are genuinely excited about where I'm headed with my new music,” says Marquis. “Having played music for a while now in different scenarios, one of the most important things to me now, is working with people who are just as passionate about what they do as I am about my music. It's that enthusiasm and foresight that make me proud to be a part of the EVR family.”

Marquis will release his debut solo full-length album, Blood & Spirits, on May 13, following his trek on the UK Acoustic Basement Tour with Geoff Ricky and Koji. The new album was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with producer Doug Grean (Tim McGraw, Stone Temple Pilots). You can check out the full tracklisting for the album below.

The singer was recently announced for the 2014 Vans Warped Tour, where he will be playing the Acoustic Basement Stage.
