Swedish MaidaVale is the grooviest star rising in the skies of heavy psychedelia. 'Tales of the Wicked West' is their debut album, released in August 2016 on The Sign Records. The first
pressing sold out in just a few weeks and the album has been praised for it's originality.
MaidaVale has played appreciated live shows and in Germany, France and Scandinavia, including Swedish festivals like Muskelrock and Sweden Rock Festival.

“The four-piece with influences that ranges over decades have created a sound based in the late 60’s/early 70’s music scene. With a modern take on blues rock the band have captured many audiences with their heavy and psychedelic vibes. A rock solid rhythm section provides lots of space for the blues influenced guitar. Adding Matilda Roth’s powerful, charismatic vocals and the lyrical themes, political both on a personal level and world-devouring, makes Tales of the Wicked West an album that stands out from recordings made in this day and age.”
