Canadian pop-punk quartet the Maddigans are set to release their latest album, No Place Like Here on March 4, and AltPress has the exclusive first listen.
“We write all of our songs together as a band – anyone’s part is up for critique from anyone, so they’re a complete team effort by all of us,” drummer Benn Kimmis says. “We’ve never used any co-writers or even had much in the way of producers. No one outside the band has ever had a major impact on our songs, and we’re proud of that.”
The band will be playing several shows in Canada following the album release:
Apr 2 – Regina – The Mercury Cafe
Apr 3 – Winnipeg – Park Theatre
Apr 4 – Saskatoon – Prairie Sun
Apr 8 – Edmonton – The Buckingham
“We’ve played a decent amount of shows all over the world now and have developed a pretty raw live performance,” Kimmis continues. “I think this is the closest we’ve come to capturing our live sound on a record.”
