“We can’t wait to get back on the road with this new material,” said guitarist Adrian Ciucci. “It’s received some great attention since the release and I’m excited to see how it develops live. Even though we’ve been playing these songs all year, having the album out gives them a whole new life and playing them in front of crowds who are familiar with them now is gonna be a totally different thing.”

The album has received national and regional attention from a number of media outlets including an international radio station based in the UK. The lead single from In the Middle of the Night, “LA Moves,” has been playing on SiriusXM’s Jam On and will be followed by the forthcoming B-side release, “The Lever.” The album is available for purchase on all major music sources and at thesouthernbellesmusic.com.

Maradeen Announces 2017 Winter/Spring Tour Dates January 18, 2017 13:50

Nashville-based rock quintet Maradeen has announced its initial tour dates for 2017, which will see the band across the Southeast and up the East Coast.  The tour kicks off with a hometown show at The Basement in Nashville (TN) on January 27th, followed by a stop at Atlanta's Aisle 5 the following night (1/28).  Additional stops on this tour include Bowling Green (KY), Birmingham (AL), Chattanooga (TN), Asheville (NC), Raleigh (NC), Charlotte (NC), Harrisonburg (VA), Blacksburg (VA), Richmond (VA), Washington D.C., Bridgeport (CT), New York (NY), and New Hope (PA).  The band will perform alongside Travers Brothership in Nashville, Atlanta, and Asheville, as well as The Southern Belles in Raleigh, Charlotte, and Richmond.  See below for the complete list of tour dates, and don't miss out on your chance to catch one of our favorite up-and-coming bands in 2017!

Maradeen is an American rock band based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Founded by guitarist, Whit Murray, in the summer of 2014 with keyboardist, Kaitlyn Connor, and bassist, Sterling Miller, the band formed their initial roots as a high energy rock n roll quartet. With classical and jazz improvisation backgrounds they forged and evolved a unique and well-versed sound. In 2015, Tom Galloway moved to Nashville for songwriting and began collaborations with Murray. The band entered the analog studio "Welcome to 1979" in the spring of 2015 and recorded their first full-length LP entitled, "Mirage". The album features the initial hard-hitting rockers from the band's formative stage while revealing the new songwriting dynamic between Murray and Galloway.

Although the band was new to the scene at this time, the origins of Maradeen run deep. Murray played lead guitar for Galloway's band, Mama's Love, between the years of 2009-12. During this time they toured nationwide, developed a devoted fanbase, and recorded with renowned producers Tom Tapley and John Keane. Galloway continued fronting Mama's Love while Murray extended his education at The Berklee College of Music.

Mama's Love had shared the stage with the progressive rock band, Afro, several times in the past which featured Connor on keys. Connor met Miller through the MTSU music program where Miller majored in audio engineering and played with bands Harrison Anvil and The Bourbon Barrel Band. A long line of history, coincidence, and mutual passion brought together the group, and they continue to make strides as they climb the mountain of music.

The Southern Belles Announce 2016 Fall Tour Dates August 18, 2016 15:09

Southern psychedelic rockers The Southern Belles just announced a twenty-one date tour extending end of August to end of October and bringing the band up and down the east coast. Along with this announcement came the release of their newest music video for “Déjà vu” filmed at The Broadberry in RVA. The video is a sample of what’s to come nearly half a year in advance of their third full-length album. Look out for our exclusive release of the video on Facebook later today. 

As “the first fully collaborative song written by the four of us together,” says bassist Andrew Carper, “Déjà vu” follows the pattern of the newest material the Belles have been releasing- not so much songs as multi-section compositions that change direction and start in a different place than where they land. “Everywhere,” the first of these new sonic journeys was debuted during their set at Lockn 2015 and will very likely be featured along side “Déjà vu” on the forthcoming album, which just went into pre-production last month.
-
“’Déjà vu’ is a specimen in the new crop of tunes we have been working on,” says front man Adrian Ciucci. “The new material feels more mature and unique, like we’re really beginning to form the sound and style that we’ve been progressing towards.”

Anchored by two of their final First Fridays- a monthly gig they’ve held down for 4 years- in Richmond, touring the Carolinas and helping the band wrap up festival season, this tour will also feature some excellent regional support on almost every date.
