Local heroes The New Madrids brought their deservedly popular Americana influenced blues and soul to the Arts Club. We invited The New Madrids to play at the official launch of the Arts Club in June because of our deep and meaningful love of Americana blues rock, but we couldn't leave it at that - and were really pleased to welcome them back for a full Arts Club show.
Formed in 2010 as an amalgamation of the four remaining members of Americana stalwarts $outhpaw and the lead singer/founder of rock & blues degenerates The Revivals, this year saw the release of their first full album, Through The Heart of Town. The album has received cracking reviews and rightly so - we couldn't put it better than this review by David James Innes: "As debut release go this is a great start for any band and though this is following a well trodden path, the destination is always going to be worth the trip. The New Madrids is another name to add to a growing list of UK bands finding their own space and place. They should be on your musical map if you like your roots/rock music to have some muscle."
So, come and join us as the band flex their Americana muscle at the Arts Club!
