Holy sh*t! We’re opening for Simple Plan

Holy sh*t! That is pretty much the way we felt when we got the word that we would be opening for Simple Plan. This Canadian 5-piece is probably one of the favorite bands of any Pop Punk fan. Obviously, we are huge fans of Simple Plan as well.

We are opening for Simple Plan at The Circus, Helsinki on Saturday May 28th. I believe you can still get tickets, if your quick. We will be announcing showtimes, once we know about them in more detail. […] Read more!

MadCraft Shows in August

I would dare to say it’s been long enough since we were last seen on stage. I know we played some acoustic stuff about a week ago but I’m talking about the real stuff. Marshalls and everything! You know what I’m talking about.

Well, I’m glad to tell you the wait is over. We have a bunch of shows in August to break this little Summer break we’ve had.

We’re playing Tavastia May 16th

Tavastia is probably one of the most (if not THE most) legendary rock clubs in Helsinki. May 16th is also a pretty legendary date Pop-Punk-wise for obvious reasons. That must mean only one thing: our show at Tavastia on May 16th is going to be legendary!

New live videos

New year, time for new videos! Well, relatively new at least. The most eager of you have probably already seen these two live videos from the end of last year, but I noticed there’s not a mention of them right here. And since I’d like to think our blog is the go-to place for all things MadCraft, I just have to put them out here. So here we go!

The first one is a take on Never Had The Guts from our show at The Circus, Helsinki. […] Read more!

First shows announced for 2015

2015 is here! We spent a good couple of weeks in holiday hibernation and are now ready to get back in business. We’re working on some new songs and have that full band cover finally coming soon. You know that other one we’ve been talking about for ages.

Anyway. In addition to new songs, 2015 hopefully means a hell of a lot of touring for us. Kicking that off, we’ve announced the first couple shows for this new year. […] Read more!
