Share the second single ‘Goodnight Little Empire’
from their second album, ‘Musica Alla Puttanesca’
released on Trashmouth Records on Friday May 24th 2019
The first single ‘Sucker Punch’ had numerous radio plays inc Marc Riley & Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music, John Kennedy on Radio X, playlisted at Amazing Radio & widespread internet radio play. ‘Sucker Punch’ was also picked up by multiple large Spotify playlists, including New Music Friday & Hot New Bands.
“Goodnight Little Empire observes the apocalyptic events described in the Book of Revelations from the comfort of a plush, velveteen couch at the back of a 1970’s disco lounge. Are we glibly rolling out the moves in the advent of the ever insidious collapse of humanity? & are we looking cool while we’re doing it?"
Madonnatron have announced details of the release of their second album, 'Musica Alla Puttanesca', which is released on Trashmouth Records on Friday 24th May 2019.
Like their debut, which was released to much acclaim in July 2017, 'Musica Alla Puttanesca' was produced by Liam D. May at Trashmouth Studios. The track listing of the 11-track album is as follows:
1. Goodnight Little Empire
2. Bone Dumb Grunt
4. Super Hands
5. Sweet Serena
6. Flesh Pond
7. Sucker Punch
8. Blue Pill
9. Nightmare In Silver
10. Elizabeth Taylor
11. Venus & Rahu
“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.”
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 two live sessions for Marc Riley on BBC 6 Music and one for John Kennedy on Radio X as his Artist In Residence; and toured with Trashmouth Records and label mates Meatraffle.
