Convivial US group MADINA LAKE have unveiled the latest in a series of singles leading up to their new EP release. ‘Silver Lines’ can be heard on Spotify here or at your preferred digital platform.
Frontman Nathan Leone explains, “Silver Lines is about the importance of having somebody close to you that reflects the best version of yourself. We all beat the crap out of ourselves so it helps to have a balancing force.
The track is taken from their forthcoming EP, ‘The Beginning Of New Endings’. The 5-track release is due out on September 18th and was produced by the band’s own Mateo Camargo (guitar, programming).
After a long hiatus, in April 2020 with the world locked down amidst a global pandemic, MADINA LAKE suddenly unveiled a ferocious new single, ‘Playing With Fire’. It had been nine years since the release of their third album, ‘World War III’. Since then, the charismatic band have been steadily releasing music, sharing a new track each month until the EP’s bundled release, set for September 18th via Strange Entertainment (The Orchard/Sony).
‘The Beginning Of New Endings’ track list:
1. Playing With Fire
2. Love Is War
3. Silver Lines
4. Heart Of Gold
5. Tiny Weapons

MADINA LAKE’s last album, 2011’s ‘World War III’, was the third and final instalment of a trilogy. It was released in conjunction with a book that took fans on a six-year journey to ultimately portend a dystopian future, eerily similar to the world we live in today, if our society was to continue on a path of blind faith, vanity, and materialism. Highlights included lead single ‘Hey Superstar’ and ‘Imagineer’, produced by Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins).
The trilogy started in 2007 with the silver-certified, Mark Trombino-produced album ‘From Them, Through Us, To You’ which spawned hit singles ‘House Of Cards’, ‘Here I Stand’, ‘One Last Kiss’, and ‘Pandora’, saw the band named ‘Best International Newcomer’ at the Kerrang! Awards, and receive an invitation from Linkin Park to join their ‘Projekt Revolution’ tour.
In 2009, MADINA LAKE blasted into the UK Top 50 for the first time, on the release of second album ‘Attics To Eden’, produced by David Bendeth and including high octane singles ‘Never Take Us Alive’ and ‘Welcome To Oblivion’.
Selling out tours around the world and dazzling fans with their exuberant live show – including slots at festivals like Download, Summer Sonic, Warped, Slam Dunk, Soundwave, Rock am Ring/Rock im Park, and Reading/Leeds amongst others – the group consistently featured on multiple magazine front covers including Kerrang! and Rock Sound, and were official MTV2 correspondents for ‘Road To The VMAs’.
Their songs have been licensed by everyone from ESPN, Guitar Hero, and MLB, to MTV Cribs, The Hills, Bully Beat Down, NHL, and WWE,
