Dead Confederate is an American alternative rock band formed in Augusta, Georgia and based in Athens, Georgia. The band's sound has been described as a mix of alternative country, psychedelic rock and grunge, and has drawn comparisons to Nirvana and My Morning Jacket.The alternative rock bands that ruined music in the 1990s, which are still influential for all the new fans they drug back underground, had a habit of filling their major label debuts with one or two insanely catchy but empty songs wrapped in unlistenable fluff.With “In the Marrow,” it’s like Dead Confederate went back two decades and wiped all that grunge, all the post-punk, away, leaving just the band’s influences, Nirvana and Dinosaur Jr., as an example.Dead Confederate’s latest makes it feel like the late ’90s never happened, that punk never broke, that Cobain never killed himself. They hadn’t technically gone anywhere, but “In the Marrow” makes a writer throw up his hands and say, “Thank God, they’re back.”

This edition of the album contains the single version of "Cat Food" and it's B-side "Groon" as additional tracks, presenting, for the 1st time, King Crimson's studio recordings of the period on one CD.
