Mad At The World: Launching Kickstarter For Upcoming Full-Length

Mad At The World had been a staple of Southern Californian rock from the late ’80s through to the mid-’90s with a total of seven full-length albums, mixing a fine dose of synthpop, techno rock, hard rock and the power pop style of the era.

Originally formed by brothers Roger and Randy Rose in 1987, they were signed by Frontline Records at a time when heavy metal was everywhere within pop culture, and Britpop itself was in high demand out of the United Kingdom, with the group showing heavy influences taken from popular bands such as Tears For Fears and Depeche Mode during the first two releases from the group.

As the scene was slowly changing coming into the ’90s, their highest charting effort and fourth release, Boomerang (1991) and its controversial single “Isn’t Sex A Wonderful Thing” caused a stir among religious groups and resulted in the album being banned from being sold in certain stores.

They would go on to release three more full-length albums in the following few years, entitled Through the Forest (1992), The Ferris Wheel (1993) and The Dreamland Café (1995), before a breakup in 1998.

Fast forward to June of 2017 when the band announced its reformation and status of working on their eighth release, which also to be the first of a trilogy of planned albums after 22 years, entitled Hope (2017), through the crowd funding website Kickstarter.

The success of Hope drove the band to announce another Kickstarter crowd fund for their next upcoming full-length album Love and Despair, which is expected to commence this coming week.

Brothers Randy and Roger Rose are currently working on their new material for the upcoming release at Mad At The World Studios in Texas.
