Biography

Phratry Record’s, Mad Anthony, is a four piece rock band from Cincinnati, OH.

Mad Anthony formed in the summer of 2007 to produce music full of the one thing they lacked… SOUL. Drawing inspiration from other Cincinnati rockers (Caterpillar Tracks, Knife the Symphony, Thistle, etc.) Mad Anthony soon found themselves making music reflecting their circumstance. Ringo wrote about debt, alcoholism, schizophrenic characters, and the degenerate scum he called friends.

In June of 2008, Mad Anthony released their debut EP to an overcrowded booze hungry swarm at the Gypsy Hut in Cincinnati. Sonically, the EP resembles the characters featured in the lyrics. The first listen often follows the melody, but with each pass a new element is discovered. The dark heavy drums of a lost soul, the screaming release of lead guitar, the mechanic bass of a routine driven life, and the murmurs of mad man stuck inside himself personified by the harmonies.

Recorded in the winter of 07-08 at Candyland studio by Mike Montgomery (guitarist for Ampline, Thistle and co-owner of Tiberius Records). The recording process was as much about capturing the music as it was a growing process for the band. The members of Mad Anthony found themselves becoming more aware of their roles as their compositions were broken down piece by piece and the group was able to focus on their individual parts and discuss how best to get their ideas across through Mike’s role not only as engineer, but also as producer.
