    Marmaduke Duke are a conceptual rock duo from Ayrshire, Scotland, comprising Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro and JP Reid of Sucioperro. Within the band, the pair perform under the pseudonyms The Atmosphere and The Dragon. According to Neil, the band, and its albums, are "based on a trilogy of unreleased manuscripts that a friend of ours bought to this country a few years ago. We're really just working to soundtrack those stories."

    To date, the band have released two studio albums, with their second, Duke Pandemonium, achieving commercial success in the United Kingdom. The album entered the UK Albums Chart at #14.

    Background and Studio Albums
    Beginnings and The Magnificent Duke
    Marmaduke Duke reputedly formed in 2003. However, prior recording and touring commitments to their own respective bands meant that it took until 2005 for the band's first album - an 18 track album named The Magnificent Duke, and presented as a triptych of discs - to be released.

    Duke Pandemonium
    Duke Pandemonium, the band's second studio album, was released on May 11, 2009.

    In Duke Pandemonium, the band adopted a more synthesiser based approach - a radical departure from their previous musical direction, and reflected in the style of two tracks ("Silhouettes" and "Everybody Dance") previewed on their web site prior to the album's launch. During live performances, again prior to the album's release, the band also performed the tracks "Erotic Robotic", "Music Show" and "Heartburn", confirming their inclusion on the then-forthcoming album.

    The album was originally scheduled for release in late 2006, and a three track sampler CD was distributed to magazines and radio stations in spring 2006. However, due to the touring and recording commitments of Biffy Clyro, and the intervention of 14th Floor Records, the decision was made to postpone the album's release until Marmaduke Duke could actually tour and promote the new record. In late 2008, it was announced that Duke Pandemonium was to be released through 14th Floor Records (an imprint of Warner Music UK) in April 2009, preceded by two singles; 'Kid Gloves' (2 March 2009) and 'Rubber Lover' (April 2009).
