Welcome to this hell, my friends..
Taking inspiration from bands such as Foo Fighters, QOTSA & Muse, Maddison combine raw angst, huge guitars and an unmatched energy that is sure to turn heads.
Maddison, hailing from Chepstow, South Wales, were born out of lead vocalist and guitarist James Chorlton’s desire and passion to create music surrounding his own experiences with anxiety and depression.
The band are comprised of Peter Edwards on guitar, Benj Allison on bass & Kob on drums together with frontman James.
Maddison released their debut album, ‘The Dark’ in 2017 and very quickly amassed a great online following, with over 50,000 followers on Facebook alone. Their subsequent singles earnt them 90,000 streams on Spotify and over 66,000 views on YouTube, and got them featured on multiple Spotify playlists including Release Radar and Discover Weekly.
The new EP ‘Recovery’ features anthemic choruses over soaring guitars, and shows a solid evolution in not only their songwriting, but with the execution in which they perform their music.
To date, the band have received numerous press and radio features, all with very positive things to say. Notably from Joe Elliott of Def Leppard on Planet Rock, and Adam Walton of BBC Radio Wales.
