Maldroid


Only a handful of bands can claim Good Morning America as the first place they shared a stage. Even fewer count rock royalty David Allen of Gang of Four, The Strokes Fabrizio Moretti and Corey Feldman as fans. Yet Maldroid picks up the gauntlet of 21st century rock nouveau where others dare not tread. Pulling from inspirations as diverse as Andy Warhol’s Factory, Oingo Boingo, Rocket From the Crypt, and seminal game show classic Joker’s Wild, these veterans of the East Bay scene present their debut full length Read more on Last.fm
Only a handful of bands can claim Good Morning America as the first place they shared a stage. Even fewer count rock royalty David Allen of Gang of Four, The Strokes Fabrizio Moretti and Corey Feldman as fans. Yet Maldroid picks up the gauntlet of 21st century rock nouveau where others dare not tread. Pulling from inspirations as diverse as Andy Warhol’s Factory, Oingo Boingo, Rocket From the Crypt, and seminal game show classic Joker’s Wild, these veterans of the East Bay scene present their debut full length, "Maldroid", available NOW on Fuzz Artists, iTunes, SnoCap, the Official Maldroid Store and select record stores. Maldroid’s strategy for success is a combination of old-school Do-It-Yourself work ethos, mixed with the concept of the band being a moving, living, ever-evolving art project- more of a commentary on society than a consumer product. “We make every thing ourselves- our suits, our t-shirts, our logos, our stage props,” says front man and video director Ryan Divine.

Such a hands-on approach to crafting image contrasts the band’s spacey fascination with robots and machination. This pastiche of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century with sentimental childhood favorites is a repeated theme throughout Maldroid’s music as well as their techno color videos. Divine’s inspired take of Maldroid's “He Said, She Said” video is an homage to A-Ha's “Take On Me,” as well as an illustration of the band’s ability to do everything “in-house” (Divine did his own take on the classic 1980’s hand-drawn style). “He Said, She Said” plays have blown past the 1 million mark, as has the new single and video from "Maldroid", “Heck No! (I’ll Never Listen To Techno)", in which Divine painstakingly uses Lite-Brites to illustrate the curse of a world run by robots. The Future is Now.
