More On Mad Dogs & ‘We Are Ready To Testify’
Mad Dogs are back with a catchy third album! The band from San Severino Marche released a work full of powerful rock’n’roll remarking its love for high energetic garage vibe and the 70s atmosphere. 10 tracks which overwhelming riffs evoke a roller-coaster of adrenaline. Echoes of The Hellacopters, Sonic’s Rendezvous Band and Radio Birdman meet with MC5, Miracle Workers and New Christ. Recorded at Teatro delle Voci in Treviso, Italy, We Are Ready To Testify is the evidence that fighting for what you believe in and following your dreams is the right way to get free.
Mad Dogs is a band born and devoted to rock since 2009. In 2016 the band found its shape and stability after several formation changes. From now on the artistic and creative process has been oriented towards high energy rock and 70s’ sounds
In autumn of the same year, Mad Dogs entered the Go Down Studio in Savignano sul Rubicone to record Ass Shakin ‘Dirty Rollers. The album was mixed and mastered by Alfredo ‘Epi’ Gentili and it came out in April 2017 via Go Down Records. It was an instinctive record, written and recorded in a short time and able to shoot the band without filters. The project was supported by the two singles I Can Move and Point Of View, both launched with videos. The critics positively welcomed the work.
Strengthened by the gained experience and with a new awareness, the band was ready to record the new album We Are Ready To Testify in June 2019. The Mad Dogs showed off a powerful sound, emphasizing the rock’n roll attitude and love for garage-rock sounds, but giving space to more refined details and 70s atmosphere too.
During these years the band has shared the stage with artists such as Lords Of Altamont, Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman), Keith Streng (Fleshtones), Yawing Man, Sick Rose, Not Moving and many others.
