Attics To Eden CD
For Chicago's Madina Lake, working with esteemed producer
David Bendeth on Attics to Eden, the experimental follow-up to their
2007 Roadrunner Records debut From Them, Through Us, To You, was an
honor and a sincere privilege. After all, the man has worked with the likes of
Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Breaking Benjamin, and labelmates Killswitch Engage,
and he's even helmed Paramore's recent breakout LP, 'Riot'! But by the same token,
the two months the band spent with Bendeth -- within the platinum plaque-lined
walls of his House of Loud Studios, planted smack dab in the desolate thick of
Elmwood Park, New Jersey -- completing the record was ultimately humbling.
That's because crafting and tracking what would become their sophomore
full-length was an experience tantamount to rock and roll boot camp, according
to bassist and backing vocalist Matthew Leone.
