BORN IN CHICAGO...
RAISED ON THE ROAD.

STATE AND MADISON has forged its own path ahead. Started in October 2005, the band has independently released EIGHT collections of songs - Up From Down (2005), Simplicity Is The Name Of The Game (2006), Consider This A Confession (2007), If This Was The Moon (2008), Become The Not Found (2008), This Is A Risk (2009), The Wolfman (2010), Tar & Feather (2016) - to an ever growing group of fans, starting first with their hometown friends and family on the Southside of Chicago.

Melodies made for top 40..."
ALTERNATIVE PRESS
“Singer Nickolas Blazina definitely has one of the best voices in Chicago music.”
CHICAGO MUSIC MAGAZINE

"The intersection of State and Madison downtown is the zero point of the street grid. The music of local rockers State and Madison is the intersection of impassioned hooks and snappy riffs."
CHICAGO SUN TIMES

“You can hear in the music that they love what they do, and they're a band that deserves your attention.”
SCOPEOUT.NET

Slated for U.S. release one week before Valentine's Day 2018, STATE AND MADISON is charting a course toward a 2nd full length album, entitled BLOODSHED.

Produced by NICKOLAS BLAZINA, and mixed by longtime friend and collaborator J. HALL (HIDDEN HOSPITALS, STILL + STORM, MADAMADAM, EVERYTHING IN SLOW MOTION, HOUSE OF HEROES), the new LP finds the band digging further into the influences they hold dearest to their hearts. While the band's first LP "TAR & FEATHER" felt like a marriage between the past and present, BLOODSHED tears forth from the first track "BE. HERE. NOW." with a fever unlike any STATE AND MADISON record before it. With a tip of the hat to artists like JIMMY EAT WORLDSILVERCHAIRTHRICE, and ACCEPTANCE - these 10 songs find the band still etching its own name into stone ~ inspired by some of the best rock bands of our time.

BLOODSHED out 02.06.18.
