Powerhouse rifts and passionate lyrics are not all that separate the musicians of Madina Lake from the pack of fellow punk rock bands. Their keen sense and respect for the music industry helps them realize that music takes two kinds of people to make it magical. There are the musicians and then there are the fans. However, Madina Lake has proclaimed that they have fans but prefer to consider them as friends. During their performance, they make their appreciation known by grasping concert goers and pulling them into their world of music. It is not hard to do so with the addictive mystery the band created around their debut album named "From Them, Through Us, to You" on Road Runner Records. Madina Lake is a fictitious town centered in the 1950s when the town's socialite Adalia ends up missing. The album does not necessarily hold the answer to the disappearance, but contains many anthems and themes of life. The album's unusual and unique theme is why the musicians gained hundreds of new 'friends' within months. Even their well thought answers to my questions are a sign that Madina Lake are on the right track to years of musical success.
