Formed 1997 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina by Al Burian, Dave Laney and Ben Davis, MILEMARKER quickly gained recognition in the independent music scene for their explosive live shows and adventurous instrumentation. The band became known for its combination of post-hardcore punk with new wave electronics, and found a solid touring line-up. In 2009, guitarist Dave Laney moved to Hamburg and focused his musical energy into the band Auxes, while bassist Al Burian moved to Berlin to pursue literary and journalistic interests. A re-ignition of the band on German soil seemed inevitable. MILEMARKER returned to the stage in 2015 with Lena Kilkka on synth/vocals and Ezra Cale on drums.
