Founded in 2011, the four piece band Madmartigan hails from Austin, Texas. Boasting a sound as uniquely alluring as their city itself, they stand out as a group poised to make waves far beyond the crowded scene of the music mecca. Eric Foshee (Vocals/Guitar), Joey Lopez-Lopez (Guitar), Jon Kovar (Bass/Vocals), and Jon Deichmann (Drums) typically load into venues unassumingly, enjoying the other bands' sets with a Lone Star in hand. But when it is finally time for Mm to take the stage, 'unassuming' is the last word that comes to mind. Lopez's beautifully melancholy guitar work, Kovar's smooth, melodic basslines and tight vocal harmonies, Deichmann's thunderous and technically masterful drumming, and Foshee's effortless double duty of lead guitar and vocal combine to form a wall of sound that is somehow both musically compelling and highly approachable. Fresh off of the 2015 release of their 3 Song EP "Toys & Candy," Madmartigan continues to turn heads with their seamless transitions, interesting song structures, quick time changes, inescapable melodies, intertwining guitar work, brilliant drumming, powerful vocals and thoughtful, poetic lyrics. The latest release has been described as "Engaging," "Symphonic," "Dynamic," and "An interesting blend of cross-genres..." (Ted Rogen, theevenground.com 7/29/15) and features three polished songs spanning the band's tremendous musical range while showcasing songwriting and arrangement chops that are difficult to ignore. The 3 song EP (recorded at the well respected Westfall Recording Co. in Austin) is the perfect follow up to the 2014 DIY release, "Dracula(s)," which itself has been called "a dynamic post-modern rock experience" (Eva Cantillo, theevenground.com 7/30/14). "Toys & Candy" showcases considerable musical growth and an increasingly focused definition of the band's sound. Unwilling to be 'unassuming' any longer, Madmartigan feels that they are ready to move beyond these famous city limits and into their place within the rock music world - and look to be more than capable of doing just that.
