Is Madlock dropping hints of a very first album through an Instagram post?

Rumours are in; sources have claimed that Madlock, the alternative rock band from Lahore, Punjab,  is currently working on an ‘album’, set to release in a yet to be disclosed date in 2017.

ARE ROCK FANS EXCITED?! HELL YES!

There has been no information regarding what the sound will be like, but it is safe to make a few guesses, maybe a recent post from the vocalist’s Instagram is a hint?

The frontman was recently spotted at Levi’s Live Session 4 alongside Danyal Zafar, Farhad Hamayun & Momina Mustehsan and also at Lahore Music Meet ’17 singing old classics and a few requests from the audience!

 

Double Album.

There has been no word from the band for quite a long time, and perhaps the album release has been the real reason behind it.

‘All I can confirm at the moment is that I plan to put something out before the middle of summer this year.’ Mehroze says in a short interview at LUMS after Madlock’s performance opening for Ali Azmat.

Mehroze further mentioned to Daily Pakistan that Sarmad Ghafoor (ex-Qiyaas member) would be recording their album.

Sarmad Ghafoor, professional musician/guitarist and a big name amongst producers in the Pakistani music industry, has previously produced Atif Aslam’s ‘Jal Pari’.

The band’s musical style has always largely been showcased to be influenced by a lot of the artists which were part of the grunge movement in the nineties. Based on Gilani’s imagery of the band which has been put forward, it is safe to say he is a big fan of the seattle sound and alternative rock in general.

Mehroze Gilani, band leader, founded the band in early 2015. In the past year, the band has opened for a variety of big names at concerts. The rock trio plays their original songs without dropping any hints and without giving any song titles.
