mlmainReleasing their new album Attics to Eden this week Madina Lake (Nathan Leone on vocals, Matthew Leone on bass, Mateo Camargo on guitar and Dan Torelli on drums) compared the recording process with producer David Bendeth to a vigorous boot camp. It was that deconstruction that the band feels ultimately led them to recording an album that encompasses who they really are as a band.

Admittedly doing some self-exploration through their debut album From Them, Through Us, To You on Roadrunner Records, Attics to Eden is a bold statement inviting fans into the inner workings of Madina Lake and the band that they’ve evolved into.

Aiming for a “rock and roll assault on the senses” the band set out to make a record that defied genres and and promoted a theme of living in the moment. Never afraid to incorporate as many elements as necessary the band used electronics and other sounds not often heard on a rock album (the trumpet) to expand their sound.

Continuing the concepts developed in From Them, Through Us, To You, Attics to Eden carries on the tale of good versus evil but with a touch of science fiction and surrealism. Not wanting to convey the same topics but wanting to continue the mystery the band puts full faith in their fans that they will follow the vision that the band set out with from the beginning.

Nathan Leone recently took some time to answer some questions about Attics to Eden and all things Madina Lake.  Special thanks to “The River People” for their questions!
