2 tone legends Madness have announce a series of UK dates for December. They usually play in the UK during this time so it’s not a surprise. What I’m wondering is when Madness will be over in the States to promote their brilliant new album “Liberty of Norton Folgate?” The new album drops in the States on September 29th on Yep Roc Records. It’s definitely their best album in a very long time.
Here’s what Madness had to say in their e-mail newsletter:
