“New Madrid is a study in contrasts. The band’s music is both earthy and interstellar, sweet, simple Southern rock blasted into the ionosphere”
— Flagpole Magazine

Born from the rolling thunder of the Tennessee mountains, New Madrid is glad to now call Athens, GA home. The band, settled into a big red barn just outside of town, is taking the southeast by storm. Drawing heavy influence from alt-country and noise-rock alike, these four young performers create captivating soundscapes that are simultaneously dense and expansive. With reverb-drenched vocal harmonies that soar over a lush and textured musical patchwork, New Madrid evolved seamlessly from bedroom project to polished product. They are now rightfully considered one of the brightest up-and-coming groups emerging from Athen’s storied scene.

In 2012, the band recorded and independently released their debut full-length album Yardboat, mixed and tracked by legendary Athens engineer/producer David Barbe (REM, Drive-By Truckers, Deerhunter) at his Chase Park Transduction studio. The album was recorded mostly live and on traditional analogue tape over a impressive three-day stretch. It was then mastered by Brooklyn-based engineer Joe Lambert (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Dan Deacon).

Fresh off their first release, the band has been steadily touring the country with a head of steam. Given their voracious appetite for writing and recording as well as their high-energy live performances, this ship shows no sign of slowing.
