matthew had a chat today with some fans. I missed it, apparently the situation is just that they have completed the three-album cycle that they always envisioned and they feel that they have done all they can under the name Madina Lake. They are still hoping to tour Australia, Europe, and the US before they go out, apparently. They just want to move on to other projects. Dan has his son, Matthew just adopted a dog, and Nathan and his wife are moving to LA with Mateo. Mateo also has his project with his sister back in Colombia, called Little Bitter Cubes.
Madina is one of my favorite bands I've ever seen live (I think I've been to maybe 4 shows?) and I really hope they do one more US tour. While I wasn't nearly as big a fan of their second two albums, I really admired how they made the album they wanted to make with WWIII. Sad to see them go.
