Madina Lake wants your band to support them in the UK

Madina Lake are touring the Attics to Eden album again in the UK in March/April and Play.com with Atticus are offering you and your band the unique chance to be the opening band on one night of their UK tour!

“It took years of blood sweat and tears just to get Madina Lake an opening slot on a Sunday at Metro in Chicago. Every time a national touring band was coming through, all the local bands we’re like piranha on a skirt steak trying to get on the bill. It rarely happened but in the one or two instances that we got the show, it immensely helped our profile. Many years later, Madina Lake is lucky enough to be in a position to provide this opportunity to new bands. It gets really political and crazy with booking agents, managers, labels etc..vying for slots on a decent tour, but Madina doesn’t play
that game. We want new bands, local to the city we’ll be playing, to have a chance to get in front of an audience and do their thing. Thanks to everyone involved in allowing us to do this, Atticus, 5BAM management and Ross Warnick at Agency Group and most importantly, to the bands that want it. Good luck, see you out there!”

To enter, all you have to do is email the following details: Contact Name, Phone Number, Email Address, MySpace Band Page and the date of the gig you wish to play at to supportbandcomp@play.com.

The guys from Atticus will listen to all the tracks sent in and select the best band to open for Madina Lake. Please note: the winning bands will be support for one night only.
