Mad Ones

Bio

Mad Ones have been cranking out real, raw, heart and soul rock, garage, punk for little over a decade. Their catchy songs and sweaty, unhinged shows have earned them the devotion of fans all over the world, lasting friendships and support from a good number of iconic artists.

New single “What it Takes” arrives in March 2023 with spring dates throughout Canada and the release of a special live stream taped at The Tragically Hip’s legendary Bath House Studio in April. 

The new line up of Andrew DeVillers, Russ Fernandes and Jesse L. Bellon toured Europe in fall 2022 in support of “Hydra Head” 7” (2022 Fortune Stellar Records) and Mad Ones 4th LP “Last Forever” (2021). 

Mad Ones albums have featured guest appearances from members of The Sadies, Constantines, By Divine Right and HotKid. The band has performed with the likes of The OBGMs, Teenage Head, PUP, Rusty, Ace of Wands, Tommy Stinson, The Dirty Nil and so many more.

Press:

“Crunchy, garage-tinged rock’n’roll done right. There are a growing number of pretension-free bands like this in Toronto — a positive sign amongst a sea of over-earnest, self-serious indie rockers — and Mad Ones are slowly climbing to the top of that heap.” -Exclaim!

“A bit of Big Star by way of The Replacements make it a fun listen. ‘Regretless’ is like a jukebox filled with double A-side singles, with songs that sound familiar after hearing them just once. No pretense, no posing, but good time music about feeling bad.” -Here Comes The Flood

“Pure heart and soul. Full of piss and vinegar. Give it up for Mad Ones.” -Tommy Stinson (The Replacements, Bash & Pop)
