- Manchester Psych Fest
Swedish MAIDAVALE is the grooviest star rising in the skies of heavy psychedelia. The four-piece unit with influences that ranges over decades have created a sound based in the late 60’s rock scene. Though both their influences and style are deeply rooted in that period, the band’s character lives on it’s own outside the frames of that treasured timewarp.
MAIDAVALE released their debut album "Tales of The Wicked West" on The Sign Records in August 2016. It was successfully received and brought the band to 12 different countries during 2017, with highlights such as Freak Valley and Red Smoke Festivals. Before even releasing their first album, MAIDAVALE played festivals like Sweden Rock and Muskelrock – building their reputation as a stirring, charismatic live band. With a personal and reinventive take on psychedelic rock and a furious groove they enchanted every audience that came in their way.
MAIDAVALE are currently in the studio breaking new grounds that will result in their second album. The new album "Madness is too Pure" came out in March 2018, following the release of a first single in late January. With their second album MAIDAVALE continue strongly with a more upfront, atmospheric and experimental sound – yet with the distinguished groove that is characteristic for MAIDAVALE.
