March 29, 2016 - Mark performs with 311

Got a chance to perform with my dear friends 311 for their annual 311 Day at the Smoothie King Arena in New Orleans on March 12. We played Fly, and a song Nick Hexum co-wrote with us called Stay On off of our self-titled record, for the first time live. That band is so good, and Nick and SA's harmonies took both songs to another level...it was truly an honor to share the stage with them.

Some of you may remember that 311 took us on our first big arena tour back in '97 in support of their record Transistor. Some band by the name of Incubus opened the show believe it or not, wonder whatever happened to them? 😜 A big up to everyone in the 311 organization, and especially to their fans, for being so welcoming and hospitable for the entire weekend!

September 4, 2014 - Mark McGrath is Happy to Wash the Stink Off '90s Nostalgia

For a guy whose better years are admittedly behind him, Mark McGrath isn't ready to leave the '90s behind just yet. For the past three years, he's spent his summers on the road taking advantage of the thirst for nostalgia with his Under the Sun tour. Playing with his hits with his contemporaries is a far cry from what Sugar Ray was at its inception.

January 11, 2014 - Buzz About Killer Karaoke.

September 16, 2013 - truTV Cues Up More Killer Karaoke, with New Host Mark McGrath

Network Orders Eight Episodes of Outrageous Singing Competition Series Slated to Return in Late 2013

It's time for aspiring singers to start warming up their vocal cords – not to mention their courage. truTV is bringing back Killer Karaoke, the outrageous singing competition series that challenges contestants to sing a hit song while enduring the most hilarious and unexpected physical challenges imaginable. The man putting the singers through the ringer will be new host Mark McGrath (Don't Forget the Lyrics!, Extra). truTV has ordered eight additional episodes of Killer Karaoke, bringing its first-season total to 16. Production on the new episodes is set to begin in October in Los Angeles.

Killer Karaoke, which the New York Times cheekily hailed as "the greatest show in television history," hits all the wrong notes in the best possible way. Each week on this twisted competition show, contestants attempt to sing songs while facing extreme and sometimes skin-crawling obstacles guaranteed to tap into their worst fears.

This year, Killer Karaoke is going to up the ante with a fresh, new format. Each episode's competition will begin with six contestants singing an opening number, after which they will be ranked based on a scoring system. The highest-ranking players will earn advantages throughout the show, such as deciding who goes first, picking their challenges and sometimes even choosing what obstacles their opponent will face. But the ultimate goal is winning over the audience, who will be voting throughout the competition.

When all is "sung and done," the top two contestants must face each other – as well as their biggest fears – in a final head-to-head battle. The singer with the highest score will then win the weekly cash prize of up to $10,000.

Inspired in part by Zodiak Media's international television hit Sing If You Can, truTV's Killer Karaoke created a great deal of buzz when it premiered in November 2012. The series is produced by Zodiak USA, with Tony Yates and James Rowley serving as executive producers.
