On the heels of the release of their new album ‘World War III’, the Chicago-based alternative rock group Madina Lake have announced they’ll join the first-ever “Wake-Up! Tour” supporting Me Talk Pretty this fall. The nationwide U.S. tour will kick off November 26th in Baltimore, MD and will wrap up December 18th in New York City (see full dates below), Hell Or Highwater and New Years Day will round out the bill.

In video news, the group premiered the clip for their propulsive second single “Imagineer”-co-written and produced by Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins. Watch the video for Madina Lake’s, “Imagineer” below.

“In the wake of the beating bassist Matthew Leone suffered last year, Madina Lake’s return to the scene is reason enough to celebrate, it’s just icing on the cake they’ve delivered their strongest album to date. ‘World War III’ is a big, dirty pop record drenched in electronics, shot through with ass-shaking grooves and boasting towering refrains designed to be sung by thousands of voices. While “Howdy Neighbor!” and “Fireworks” are mean through and through, “Across 5 Oceans” and “Heroine” dramatically counter their insidious verses with soaring, uplifting choruses that sneak up out of nowhere.”
