Having moved forwards emotionally from the wilds of dystopian stalking and associated hobbies, Madonnatron have instead been found frolicking through the green pastures of gangsta pimps, Hindu God wars, Cyber Men invasion, loveless nightclub hook-ups, modern Italian Nabokov, and revered screen goddess Elizabeth Taylor. Think of them as post-punk lab rats in the Secrets Of Nimh, feasting dubiously on back-dated episodes of Top Of The Pops. With notorious roaring guitars, chanting vocals and rabid drums they audibly glow in the dark, are strong-armed, and will probably bite you.”
Their atmospheric, raw, and confrontational live shows carry a sonic force that by turns will make you weep, cross yourselves, and weep again. In the last couple of years, Madonnatron delivered a successful UK headline tour; supported The Moonlandingz, PINS and The Black Lips; featured on the line up at Green Man, Manchester Psych Fest & Ritual Union & Great Escape; played twolive sessions for Marc Riley on BBC6Music and one for John Kennedy on Radio X & an Artist In Residence; and toured with Trashmouth Recordsand label mates Meatraffle. They return in the early summerwith a run of headline shows across the U.K.
