Chicago alt rockers Madina Lake are working on pre-production for their new album, Attics To Eden.
The band is currently holed up in New Jersey's House Of Loud studio diligently working on their second full-length for Roadrunner Records. David Bendeth (Paramore, Underoath, Killswitch Engage, In Flames) is set to produce and mix the album.
Attics To Eden follows up the band's 2007-released debut, From Them, Through Us, To You.
Madina Lake – comprised of vocalist Nathan Leone, bassist Matthew Leone, guitarist Mateo Camargo and drummer Dan Torelli — have logged countless miles on their tour van performing everywhere from pizza joints and basement parties to the second stage of 2007's Projekt Revolution US Tour and last summer's US Warped Tour as well as the UK’s Download and Give It A Name festivals.
Nathan Leone sheds a little light on the recording process after the band spent the last three months at home in Chicago shaping songs.
"The record's title is Attics To Eden because, lyrically, most of the tracks explore different ways to find psychological refuge in a world that is moving faster than ever.
"We picked David Bendeth because, for as many hits as he has, his focus lies more on the personality, individual character and musical ambition of artists, as opposed to chasing radio or trends."
Roadrunner expects to release Attics To Eden March/April 2009.
