Madina Lake is a quiet sleepy lakeside town perched in the valley of its guardian
mountains. Set in the 1950's, the town is lost and isolated from the rest of the world.
It’s a microcosm of a society, enriched with social, political and meta-physical nuances.
Its grounds are the setting for many strange occurrences. A place where lies, crimes and
deceit are buried by its inhabitants. Such a place compels a soundtrack...
Chicago’s Madina Lake is definitely not your run of the mill rock band. Hardworking
and dedicated from the start, they’ve always had their eyes on the goal of reaching
as many people with their music as possible. The identical twins, Nathan and Matthew
proved their dedication to their dream by competing and winning on the twins episode
of reality show FEAR FACTOR and turning their winnings into the demos that would get
them signed to Roadrunner. Since then the band has been tearing up the road, with
over 150 shows in 2006 opening for Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Paramore, Halifax, 10
Years, Gym Class Heroes and many more. Now after winning fans every night on stage,
the band is ready to expand their clan of “River People,” as their fans are called, with
their debut full length From Them, Through Us, To You. Produced and mixed by
punk/emo master Mark Trombino (Blink-182, Jimmy Eat World, Motion City Soundtrack,
Something Corporate), the album is full of catchy hooks that will draw the listener in,
where they will find an addictive album full of elaborate textures and layers. Never
ones to do anything the norm, the album’s themes, artwork and the band’s website
all revolve around the story of Madina Lake, a fictional 1950’s town where a mysterious
disappearance has turned the town upside down.
