CORPUS CHRISTI — Mark Rogers, a 1992 graduate from Mission High School, is releasing his first EP titled Lifeless Touch on Aug. 23. Lifeless Touch will be available as a digital download from various music sites such as Amazon MP3, Rhapsody, Napster and iTunes among others.
His career in the music industry has progressed in behind-the-scenes roles, where he has worked as a stagehand, sound engineer and all around go-to tech person. While he still has the opportunity to record other artists, he has now ventured into the music scene himself.
After releasing a self-released single, Speed Demon, 18 months ago, which featured guest guitarists Zeke Brown of King’s Ransom on lead guitar and Dug Pinnick of King’s X on bass, Rogers has picked up the bass and lead guitars himself. Lifeless Touch features four songs written, performed, recorded, mixed produced and mastered all by Rogers.
