The four-piece rock band Madeline is led by Madeline Adams from Athens, GA who began her career when she moved to Bloomington, IN to work with punk label Plan-It-X Records and later toured with many punk acts such as Japanther and Against Me. Madeline Adams’ last name was consistently forgotten while she began playing her first shows in Indiana, and ultimately she decided to drop it in favor of the simplistic band name Madeline. Eventually, Madeline Adams returned to Athens to work with Orange Twin Records to collaborate with Phosphorescent, the Elephant 6 collective (including Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, Nana Grizol), Phil Elverum (Mt. Eerie), Karl Blau (The Microphones) and her own Black Velvet Band.
Madeline’s musical creations date back to as early as 2000, and along the way some quality songs didn’t make their way onto their studio albums. Madeline Adams plans to change that now, with the release of the Madeline B Sides which is scheduled for release on January 3rd, 2012 and homes many rare and unreleased songs, including a live favorite “30 Days,” which has never been released until now and her wistful tune “Diving Boards” which was written in 2004 during Madeline’s White Flag session. Have a listen to “Raining in the Philippines,” another one of Madeline’s rare B-sides songs below as an exclusive SSG Music first listen!
