MADINA LAKE ANNOUNCES FINAL EP & FAREWELLTOUR
Madina Lake has officially announced plans fora final EP and a "Farewell UK Tour". Tentatively titled "Buena Fortuna", the band is expecting a Fall release to coincide with the tour which kicks off in September. Front man Nathan Leone says "It's been a majestic run and we couldn't be happier or more grateful for everything we've been able to accomplish as Madina Lake". He went on to add "that as sad as it is to be closing this chapter, we're much more excited to open the next one".
"Buena Fortuna: marks the bands 5th release in almost 10 years together. Debut LP, "From Them Through Us to You" introduced an ambitious trilogy concept which continued with 2009's "Attics to Eden" and concluded with 2011's "World War III". In 2012 Madina Lake released a book that spelled out the underlying storyline binding each record called "Lila the Divine Game".
After almost 5 years on the road, the Chicago based band was forced on hiatus in 2010 when bassist Matthew Leone was nearly beaten to death intervening in a domestic dispute. "We'd toured relentlessly before Matthew's incident and ever since, we decided to cut back dramatically to ensure his full recovery."
In 2011, guitarist Mateo Camargo briefly left the band for personal reasons but returned for 2012's "Lila the Divine" tour in the UK. "Buena Fortuna" which translates to "good luck" in Italian promises to be an "elegant" finale to the band's tenure and they plan to announce new endeavours shortly.
