Mission vs Madness is a punk rock band from Lafayette, Louisiana. Growing up in a cultural melting pot, the band frequently strays from its punk roots into other genres, even tapping into a bit of outlaw country. But one thing stays consistent: a full-frontal sonic attack fueled by the rich storytelling and textured vocal harmonies of brothers Nick and Andy Best.
After releasing their first EP (“Launch” - July, 2009), Mission vs Madness toured the Gulf Coast region extensively from Florida to Oklahoma. The next year, the band teamed up with Grammy-winning producer/engineer Ivan Klisanin to record their first full-length album. “Trainwrecks & Tipjars” was released on August 24th, 2010 and drew immediate comparisons to influential groups such as Social Distortion and Hüsker Dü.
With two solid records under their belts, the band heads down the lonesome highway once again to continue the search for good friends, good beer, and good times.
