Can you tell we’re excited? If like us, you were a 90’s kid and going through your teenage rebellion phase and/or just getting into rock at the time (well I mean anyone really, but like that’s our experience), you’re guaranteed to remember US alt-rockers Madina Lake. I mean come on they were EVERYWHERE! (Which is a good thing honest!)
Well in 2007, they released their debut album on RoadRunner Records From Them, Through Us, To You, which featured some of their most famous singles including Here I Stand, House Of Cards and One Last Kiss. It was a sad time when in 2013, the band disbanded, however as you should be aware, this year is 2017, which if you do the maths correctly, marks TEN years since the record. Well the maths was done correctly and guess what, Madina Lake are back to celebrate the decade since the record!
Vocalist Nathan Leone said; “We’d always told ourselves that no matter what happens after we dissolved Madina, we have to get back together around the 10 year anniversary mark of ‘From Them, Through Us, To You’ and go back to England. I can’t imagine any of us believed we would actually do it but the stars have seemed to align perfectly and we can’t wait to play again.”
This made us happy but then we read further down the email and saw that they have announced they wil be appearing at Slam Dunk (all the more reason to go) AND some UK tour dates! (*does happy dance*)
Support for the three dates (please add more, we beg you! In fact, please come over and never leave okay? Thanks!) comes from Nottingham rockers Lacey;
Fri 26th May – LONDON Islington Academy
Tue 30th May – MANCHESTER Sound Control
Wed 31st May – GLASGOW King Tuts
