American Hard Rock Band Madwagon Team Up With Mark Slaughter
A power trio based in Portland OR, Madwagon have been influenced by many of the great arena, power, hard rock, and metal groups of the 80's. Drawing from those influences, they have created their first release 'With Love From Shangri La'. Nine songs of hook and power, with just enough metal to have an edge, but enough pop to keep the crowds dancing.
Madwagon was formed by guitar gunslinger Rodney Hardison, with bassist Angelo Bria leading the vocals and drummer Rich Morris in 2017. Releasing their CD in late 2018 and opening for bands such as LA Guns and the venerable Anvil, Madwagon already has shows booked with artists like Mark Slaughter (who provided an epic guitar lead on 'Tramp Stamp') for the coming year and is filling dates for shows in the US and Canada. But not for long, as they will be heading back to the studio soon to release more powerful songs to reach not only their peers of the 70's, 80's and 90's, but also a new generation that is keeping this arena style of power rock alive.
