“The Boxer” is Mark Seymour’s 11th solo studio album, and the fifth to be credited to Mark Seymour & The Undertow, featuring Cameron McKenzie on guitars, John Favaro on bass, and Peter Maslen on drums, with special guest Cameron Bruce on keys.

“We’ve thrown everything at these songs,” Mark says. “Portraits of women, men, urban decay. Life in a landscape of uncertainty. And love, of course. You can never abandon that. After all, beyond despair, there is nothing else.”

Celebrating a remarkable 50 years, the Mushroom Group is thrilled to present this new album from Mark Seymour, a songwriter who has been a part of their family for over 40 years. Dean McLachlan, Bloodlines Managing Director, expresses his honour, stating, “The Boxer is, in my humble opinion, his finest hour.”

Intriguingly, Mark Seymour draws inspiration for “The Boxer” from a newfound love for boxing. The album is a collection of songs that delve into portraits of women, men, urban decay, and life in a landscape of uncertainty. Love, an ever-present theme in Mark’s work, is explored with a profound depth. As Mark puts it, “After all, beyond despair, there is nothing else.”

Contrary to what one might expect, there are no angry songs on this record, reflecting Mark’s lessons from his recent venture into boxing. “Boxing taught me how to let go of anger and find self-respect,” he shares.
