ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rome based Mardi Gras is a rock act with a difference. Named after Creedence Clearwater Revival's last studio album, the band's musical journey is made of protest songs, poetry, prayers set to music, and a whole lot more. 2018 marks a new start for the band with a new line up and a brand new voice. Their latest single "Tried" has just been released in July 2018, "Shoes", a groovy soul oriented track is the first single released with the new line up in spring 2018. Mardi Gras has released three albums so far: Drops Made (2006, Goodfellas), Among the Streams (2011) and last, Playground (2015), a record where ballads, rock, funk and acoustic pieces of music are the playground for the band with all their influences. Mundy, one of the greatest Irish songwriters, is guesting on the band's latest album that was mastered by Simon Gibson at Abbey Road Studios in London. As regular visitors in Ireland, the band has forged long-standing connections with some of the best Irish musicians, playing as the support act for The Frames and Glen Hansard and sharing the stage with artists such as Mundy, Siobhan O' Brien, TKO, Micah P Hinson, Noah and the Whale, Billy Bragg or Jack Savoretti (not to mention the best Italian independent acts) to name a few. Liam O'Maonlai from the Hothouse Flowers features on their album "Among the streams" where a W.B.Yeats's poem is put into music. Two of Mardi Gras' songs, "The wait" and "Scarecrow in the snow" were listed on Neil Young's website "Songs of the Times" where protest songs from all over the world are chosen and listed by Neil Young in person. The band has also enjoyed great success attracting attention internationally on European and US based radio stations and becoming one of the most popular Italian acts with a constantly growing fanbase. Their singles "Feel Alright" and "Your Constellation" charted in Italy and their instrumental piece "Alys" is a soundtrack for the eponymous Italian Sci-Fi short film. In 2013 Mardi Gras had the privilege to play at the Sziget Festival in Budapest - one of the largest music festivals in Europe.
