Madeleine Black Loves You. It's true. The fact that you've even got this far and our reading this... honestly... you have no idea how much.
Based in Bristol UK Madeleine black have been gigging successfully and have developed a reputation for their tightly polished sound. Influenced by bands such as ‘Rise Against and ’36 Crazyfists’ they’ve been working hard to create songs that bridge the gap between Metal Core and Pop-punk. Specialising in energetic anthems you can rock out to, choruses you can sing along with and lyrics with layers of meaning.
Front man and lyricist Matt joined the band in 2011 after spotting an advert online, he almost didn’t get an audition as during their epic hunt for a new singer Madeleine Black had come across another Matt who was just awful. It was touch and go. On one hand they needed a singer. On the other they couldn’t go through the pain of re-auditioning the other guy. Lead guitarist’s Chris first words when Matt showed up to audition were “I’m so glad you’re not him.” Bassist Rob and Drummer Benedict agreed.
Matt was suitably confused.
Luckily they moved past this and into a practice room. There the Madeleine Black line up was completed; fuelled by a passion for rock and a healthy distrust of politics they’ve never looked back.
Since then Madeleine Black have been in the studio – feel free to listen for free online. The recordings give just a taste of the live show as it is there, at the gigs that Madeleine Black are most at home. Live and getting amongst it!
“Our goal is not just to get everyone having an awesome time but also to make people feel empowered. When we say ‘You have the power to be a force for righteous change!’ We mean it. We want people to leave our shows feeling supercharged; then go out and do something good.” – Matt
