Athens psych-rock band New Madrid Announces New Tour

Published on Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Athens psych-rock band New Madrid has been a regular part of the touring circuit, logging over 175 performances in 2014 alone. 2015 looks to be no different, as the group already has almost two months of dates booked beginning on January 23rd. New Madrid is currently supporting their sophomore effort Sunswimmer, which came out last February via Normaltown Records. The entire effort is currently available to stream via Bandcamp, which I have embedded below. Sunswimmer’s sound is an appealing one, as while the emphasis is often on sprawled out melodies that suck the listener in with their layer, there are some moments where the sound suddenly kicks up in intensity and hits with some heavier fuzzed out riffs. I’ll be checking out the performance at DC9 on February 18th, which also features performances from local artists Go Cozy and Witch Coast, and I can’t wait to get lost in these hazy melodies in a live setting. Check out the full list of dates below to see if New Madrid is coming your way.
