BaYaT’s eagerly anticipated new release “Madness” has certainly been worth the wait. “Madness” will be the first single off the second album “Purge” and is due to be released September 26.
BaYaT are a five piece rock band from Novi Sad, Serbia, formed in 2018. On Christmas Day of 2019 BaYaT released their debut album “So It Begins”, an eight track album of pure rock with hints of Alt Rock and pinches of NU Metal, accompanying solid vocals with strong messages about current affairs and situations. The album itself is the beginning of a longer story that will spill into future album releases.
“Madness” naturally leads on from the first album and sets the tone of what to expect from the second album “Purge”.
The song depicts the state of our present day society. Too much information combined with modern technology and the explosion of fake news is sending people into a state of confusion and madness. It contains a strong message of warning within the chorus whilst complementing the verses which go more in depth as to why we are where we are and what we should do about it. This is surely M8’s strongest vocal performance to date.
“Madness” is almost reaching the realms of an anthemic altrock vibe with strong hints of NU metal sounds. With its beautiful melancholy intro, progressing into an army of sound that cannot be ignored,with its mesmerising guitar riffs mixed with an air of ambience, this song needs to be played loud.
The song was produced at studio “Blaze”, Belgrade, Serbia. In late 2019 BaYaT started collaborating with studio producer Milos Mihajlovic, a decision that has proved pivotal as the production has really moved up a level, with a great understanding between Band, Manager, and Producer.
In 2020 BaYaT took to their “So It Begins” tour performing in rock venues and festivals before the pandemic brought a dramatic halt to all performances. With the current ban on public gatherings and performances, the band decided to invest all of their time and energy into the making of their second album which is expected to be released in 2021.
September 26, “Madness” will be available on all major digital platforms.
