LA MADNESS is self described "INDIE GRIND BLUES" out of Minneapolis. With a signature style & live show reputation that “goes all the way,” they have taken the music world by the hair. With the release of their debut album entitled “Chances Are” (written by vocalist/guitarist Kurt Vatland) produced/engineered by Bryan Mengy (New Medicine) & mixed/mastered by Colt Leeb (Soul Asylum), La Madness has gone international with their new breed of indie rock, blues and alternative/grunge.
With highlighted performances at Whisky A Go Go/Hollywood, Club Moscow/Hollywood, House of Blues San Diego, 710 Beach Club/San Diego, Counts Vamp'd in Las Vegas, Herman's Hideaway/Denver, Joe's Grotto in Phoenix, Elbo Room in Chicago, as well as First Avenue-7th Street Entry, Cabooze, FineLine, Triple Rock Social Club, Varsity Theater & Pourhouse in Minneapolis, the band is cultivating a growing loyal fan base.

In October of 2013 the band released Episode #1 of their Rockumentary Series 'Going Mad' and their first music video 'Got Me Wrong (radio edit)' was selected as CityPages.com "Top 10 Must See MN Music Video". Their recent WHITEOUT TOUR started with a European leg (which included a performance with Papa Roach in Germany), then screaming across America. While in Los Angeles, the band headlined the famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood and received two encores. It was in Los Angeles that La Madness was described as " if Nirvana and Buckcherry had an illegitimate child" by LA rock journalist and radio personality Paige Montgomery (see www.lamusicblog.com) .
