Following the release of their eponymously-titled debut album, Madonnatron have returned with a new single entitled ‘Mermaids’ and a run of dates. The menacing new cut is a diary entry that you ripped out and burned while the house was sleeping.
A tonic for this disquiet, the Rive Gauche familiarity of B-side ‘Ich Liebe Dich’ will ‘soothe your guilt like an amorous twenty something Marlene Dietrich engulfing you in budget pink sateen.’
Madonnatron’s escapades so far include: touring with The Moonlandingz, PINS & supporting The Black Lips; featuring on the line up at UK festivals, including a packed out slot on the Rising Stage at Green Man; two live sessions for Marc Riley touring with Trashmouth Records and label mates Meatraffle across the UK at the end of 2016, and releasing their eponymously-titled first record in July 2017.
They are currently on their first UK headline tour during March & April this year.
