Madeira News

December 14, 2006

Hello all;

Things have been a bit quiet on the Madeira front lately, so we thought we'd fill you in on what's going on. First of all, we have a show coming up on Friday, January 26th at the Melody Inn in Indy. We'll be playing with three other non-surf (though, we're told, very good) bands. Stay tuned for more info on that.

Second, we have been hard at work on new songs for our second full-length CD. So far we have six new originals that are either more-or-less finished or close, and a few others that are still gestating. Also, we selected two rare covers for the next CD, as well. We're very excited about the new material, and fully expect the next CD to be a worthy follow-up to Sandstorm.

Third, we've revamped our web sites a little bit. Our MySpace site now has two different songs from Sandstorm (Burning Mirage and El Caliph), so for those of you that still haven't purchased the CD you can now hear a bit more of it for free. Also, we added two live videos: Ricochet, from Sandstorm, and Surf Fidelis, one of our new originals. As far as our main website, we just added a live track from our July show at the Huntington Beach International Surfing Museaum - Dick Dale's Night Rider. Check them out - we hope you like them.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to announce a giveaway. Here is how it works. Every week for the next six weeks we will put a different live track on this website. Take a listen to the live track of the week and then go to our MySpace site and leave a comment, mentioning the song by name. Each monday one person who left a comment about the live track of the week will be selected at random to receive a copy of our 'Ruins' CD-EP. The giveaway is now open, so check out the current live track of the week and leave us a comment to become eligible for the giveaway. The first winner will be selected Monday, December 18th, and then every Monday after that for five weeks. Good luck!

That's all. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope to see many of you in 2007!
