Horns up for the six-piece Mad Symphony, raucously rumbling from the coast of British Columbia, armed with their eponymous debut EP and earth-shaking lead anthem, “Do It All Over Again”. Check it out on YouTube here:
Orchestrated from a variety of professional rock artists from all walks of life and career, Mad Symphony plucks together Kevin Wright (lead vox, percussion), Dave Groves (lead guitar, background vox), Ted Tosoff (rhythm guitar, background vox), Mike Russell (keys, background vox), Amrit Prasad (bass), and Wes Hallam (drums). Together, this band of rock and roll brothers have created a modern soundscape born out of the metric set by the classic rockers who influenced them all to become musicians.
One blast from the speakers and Mad Symphony transports the listener into a nostalgic vortex of classic rock; “Do It All Again” is an anthem of the ages, with pounding percussion, amplified electric guitar and powerhouse vox leading the charge. As they describe, it’s rock for the rebels; the fist-pumping hullabaloo your parents tried to keep you away from as teenagers.
The track was “written and recorded in rhythm guitarist and chief lyricist Ted Tosoffs’ basement studio, ‘Dungeon’,” explains Mad Symphony. The collective leaned into heavy-weight classic idols for inspiration on the track; from Deep Purple to Black Sabbath, Van Halen and the Scorpions. “Do It All Again” is emblematic of a sound still as prevalent, beloved and revered as it was the day it was consuming radio airwaves, boomboxes and arcades in the 70s and 80s.
“We encourage the listener to embrace resilience, while never giving up on their dreams,” says the band. “With a giant middle-finger held up to the haters and trolls of the world this song will make you want to pump your fist and sing along.”
The tracks on the forthcoming EP were both produced by the group, and mastered by Bud Bremner (Coastal Mastering) and released on MR Records. The visual component of “Do It All Again” is available now to view on Youtube. The magic and the mystery of Mad Symphony’s instant chemistry, and penchant for epic anthem writing is sourced from years as professional musicians in individual projects, groups, and rock outfits. Together, their decades of rock and roll know-how results in an erudite shakeup that will seduce you from the first note.
So much so, that when the track fades out and the music comes to a pause, Mad Symphony will cause you to want to “Do It All Again.”
