MaidaVale have since the release of their debut album Tales of the Wicked West in August 2016, toured Europe intensely.
With a captivating performance and psychedelic groove they have enchanted their audiences. The live sound of MaidaVale have always leant towards the experimental scene of the 60s and 70s, something that have reinvented their sound on the new album. The band have worked with producer Jari Haapalainen which have led them further down the kraut and experimental path. The strong melodic and psychedelic elements from their debut is still present as the foundation on their upcoming second album. MaidaVales new album Madness is too Pure will be released on The Sign Records 23rd of March. The music on Madness is too Pure is deeply rooted in the monotone union between the rhythm section of Johanna Hansson and Linn Johannesson and the hypnotizing vocals of Matilda Roth. Adding Sofia Ströms dazzling guitar playing gives depth to the musical landscape of MaidaVale. 'Madness Is Too Pure' moves Maidavale closer to bands such as NEU!, Amon Düül II, Public Image Ltd and Siouxsie and the Banshees. The album was produced and mixed by Jari Haapalainen who previously has worked with artists such as Ed Harcourt, Camera Obscura, Johnossi, Sahara Hotnights, True Moon and (The) International Noise Conspiracy. The album was recorded during six days in November 2017 at The End Studio outside of Lund, Sweden, engineered by Tommy Tift (Vånna Inget, True Moon).
