Marriages is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California that formed in 2012.[1] The band is composed of vocalist and guitarist Emma Ruth Rundle, bassist Greg Burns and drummer Andrew Clinco.[1]


Following the hiatus of Red Sparowes, two members of that band, Rundle (also formerly of the Nocturnes) and Burns (ex-Halifax Pier), formed Marriages.[2] The group recorded Kitsune EP with drummer Dave Clifford. It was released in 2012 on Sargent House,[1] followed by tours with Russian Circles and Chelsea Wolfe in 2012, and Deafheaven in 2013.[3][4] Clinco was brought in as a permanent member of the band, replacing Clifford.

In 2014, the group completed recording for their debut full-length album, Salome, while Rundle simultaneously recorded and released her solo debut Some Heavy Ocean (she has also recorded under the name the Headless Prince of Zolpidem).[5] Salome was released on April 7, 2015 by Sargent House,[6] preceded by a U.S. tour with Helms Alee and followed by a European tour with Wovenhand.[7]
