New Madrid is a three-headed monster. Their music and lyrics are an amalgamation of rock culture and South American idioms, a blending of languages and rhythms: Un estilo engendrado en Latino America pero creado en Norte America. Based in Brooklyn, fully formed in 2009, New Madrid is: Axel Ito (lead vocals, drums), Anthony Formichella (bass), and Erik Barragan (guitar). In their sound the influence of Andes and Caribbean rhythms lends the contemporary American and British Rock/Alternative genre a much-needed diversity.
The power trio's first single 'Radio Tranquila' was released in May 2012 and they are currently recording their debut EP.
New Madrid is the next step in rock evolution: bilingual rock. Una fusion, un nuevo lenguaje, una nueva cancion unida; eso es New Madrid.
