New Madrid

AthFest Artist Spotlight: New Madrid

Summer has hit Athens, which means the city is gearing up for AthFest 2015, the annual music and arts festival that takes over downtown for three of the best days of the year.

Filling a primetime spot on the main outdoor stage is local favorite New Madrid with their inimitable new hybrid form of Southern psych-influenced rock. These guys are major road warriors, touring with a unwavering stamina and putting on seasoned stage shows all over the country.

The band is no stranger to the studio either with two studio releases, 2012’s Yardboat and 2014’s Sunswimmer, released on Normaltown Records. Sunswimmer was heralded throughout the blogosphere, receiving seven stars from PopMatters. Still, live shows play a huge part in the band’s recorded music. According to guitarist/vocalist Phil McGill, “The songs [on Sunswimmer] were heavily informed by the live setting, and were written while steadily running around the south playing shows in a variety of spaces.”

Most recently, New Madrid released the strikingly visual video for “Forest Gum”, created with visual artist and fellow Athenian, Michael Siporin Levine. Paste premiered the video last February, which the band says is about “letting the subconscious do the work.” Check the video out below:

Mark your calendars for AthFest – New Madrid plays the Pulaski Street stage on Friday, June 26th!
