While the streets State and Madison have stood at the heart of Chicago’s grid system for over a century, “State and Madison,” the band, is anything but stationary. In fact, change might be this act’s most distinctive characteristic. Those attending The Beat Kitchen (Chicago) on Saturday will get an early ear full of what I’m talking about.
In what might be their most musically mature album yet, the 4 piece Indie-Rock band is set to release their new material; and with a music scene that’s plagued with 2 dimensional bands and label hungry copycats, S&M’s “Become The Not Found” LP is a strong dose of originality – and exactly what the doctor ordered.
The forthcoming LP will be released first as a limited edition vinyl (250 copies) equipped with B-Sides and a drop-card for digital versions of the songs.
“The songs on this record are so different from one another,” says singer Nickolas Blazina. “They shouldn’t make sense together, but somehow as a record, it works. It’s some of the heaviest stuff we’ve done, but also some of the more delicate. I think the B-Sides on the vinyl will highlight that best.”
The Chicago-based band is known for delivering pop-infused Indie-Rock with a signature punch, an always infectious live show, and consistently giving back to their loyal fans
Of course, if you’re the type who doesn’t believe everything they read, listen for yourself, and then head over to The Beat Kitchen on Sat. August 9th to hear what it sounds like when State and Madison intersects with Belmont and Hoyne.
