Please BUCKLE UP!

WHILE WE HAVE YOUR ATTENTION: many people have messaged us asking how they can help or what they can do… here’s what you can do

BUCKLE UP!

and not just you, everyone in the car. Adam is relatively unharmed because he was wearing his seatbelt. Marc is a seatbelt wearer, but was lying down during the accident. Ringo always wears his seatbelt, but took it off to take out his wallet and never put it back on. We’re all lucky to be alive, and we don’t take that for granted.

Our lives changed in the blink of an eye and we’d hate to lose any of you to a similar event!

if you’re inclined to help us out, I know there’s a few benefit shows being organized in Cincinnati, Lexington, and beyond. We greatly appreciate the love, we’re humbled and teary-eyed.

some people have asked to donate money to us but we’d much rather you invest in our music through Phratry Records (phratryrecords.com), madanthonyband.com, or our bandcamp page (madanthony.bandcamp.com). If you already have our stuff, buy another local band’s music! we’re all about supporting our brothers and sisters.

but if you insist on giving us money, buying us a new van or gear, paypal: madanthonyband@gmail.com

thank you all again,
-Mad Anthony

UPDATE: All Members Released from Hospital

First and foremost, we’d like to thank everyone for their kind words and support over the last two days. Being surrounded by this much love and affection has brought us all to tears. We’re very lucky to be alive and even luckier to call the wonderful people around us friends. Once again, thanks to the great people who stopped to help us, Natalie & David Bruner, as well as one other unidentified man who came to our rescue immediately. Thanks to Jefferson County’s first responders, EMTs, Police, and Firefighters who did everything they could to keep us alive. AND thanks to the Doctors, Nurses, and Staff at U of L Hospital for taking excellent care of us. Also, a special thanks to our parents and our girlfriends who take care of us on a regular basis.

Marc was released from the hospital Monday, he suffered a large laceration starting behind his right ear and weaving up to his crown that took nearly 40 staples to close. He’ll also spend some time in a neck brace as he suffered a C4 Vertabrae Fracture. He is back home in Cincinnati resting.

Ringo was released from the hospital around 1am Sunday, and suffered a laceration starting at his right temple, across the upper corner of his forehead to the middle of his head and back to his crown that took 23 stitches on his face and 17 staples in his hair to close (and also a wicked hair cut). He also sustained a cut to his chin that took 2 stitches to close. Both of his eyes are black and his face is swollen. He is back home in Cincinnati resting.

Adam suffered some cuts and scraps, a bruise on his left shoulder and right hip. He was released from the hospital late Saturday night and is back home in Cincinnati resting.

The Van is totaled. All windows on the passenger side of the van were blown out, as well as considerable body damage. We have yet to diagnosis the equipment.

The following shows have been cancelled with more TBA:
Jun 29 – Evansville, IN
Jun 30 – Marion, IN
Jul 1 – Muncie, IN
Jul 2 – Louisville, KY
Jul 4 – Knoxville, TN
Jul 4 – Chattanooga, TN
Jul 5 – Jacksonville, AL
Jul 6 – Birmingham, AL

Once again, thank you for your continued support, love, and understanding. We don’t know for sure when we’ll be back in action, but we will keep you updated.

much love,
-Mad Anthony

Mad Anthony in Automobile Accident on the Road

Mad Anthony was in a bad accident on their way to Evansville, Indiana last night outside of Louisville. Everyone was rushed to U of L hospital and is doing fine. Adam suffered some cuts and scraps and was released last night. Marc and Ringo both suffered some serious injuries to the head and were stitched up by the team there. Adam & Ringo were released around 1am this morning while Marc spent the night at the hospital with a possible fractured vertabrae. Everyone is doing ok, but obviously in a decent amount of pain. We will keep you updated to their condition as more information becomes available.

A very special thanks to The Good Samaritans who pulled over to help and called 911, the emergency team including the firefighters and EMTs, all of the great people at U of L who took care of the boys, the gentlemen who stitched up Marc and Ringo, and all of our friends and family who kept us in their thoughts.

The next few shows have been cancelled, we will keep you up to date as things develop.

love and thanks, -Mad Anthony

We Love Your Country!

There’s no question on how much we love our brothers and sisters north of the border, but we’d love to tell them thanks one more time.

Thanks to the border agents who keep letting us in, Scott at Coach & Horses, The Shanks, The Motorleague, Bella Clava, Cherry and Crew, JJ, DGB, NESSA!, Jody & J-Net, Nadia E, Shane and Foxx Lounge, Wasted Space, The Bobcast, The Micronite Filters, Ricochet, Don, Zaphod’s, The Canadian Parliament, Ian and his family, ARTHUR!, the pizza place, Joe and Local Fuzz Friday, Call the Office, all of the floors we slept on, all the bands we played with, and everyone else we forgot to mention… there’s probably a ton.

here’s a great write up:
“Overly serious, self-important musician types appear far too frequently in the music industry.  So when musicians who not only enjoy making music and actually SHOW IT come around, it’s truly refreshing. Enter Mad Anthony, three guys that just love to rock. This past weekend the trio showed rock, and Toronto, some serious love by playing a raucous show at Cherry Cola’s Rock N’ Rolla Cabaret and Lounge.

Hailing from Cincinnati, Ohio, Ringo Jones (vocals/guitar), Adam Flaig (guitar/vocals), and Marc Sherlock (drums/vocals) infused that hardworking, industrial, everyman spirit into their sound. The result is pure unadulterated sweat, covered in beer-fueled rock and roll. Coming into the homestretch of a month and a half long tour, Mad Anthony showed no signs of slowing as they swaggered onto the red-lit Cherry Cola stage. Jones’ voice, equal parts low rumble, smooth depth, and loud growl, resonated and reverberated throughout the whole room. Jones and Flaig bent, thrashed, and raged across the stage; their guitar riffs not dueling for supremacy, but shifting back and forth seamlessly. From behind the Pan-embossed drums, Sherlock pounded and pummeled with nearly unnatural speed and power.

The band’s tireless touring across the U.S. and Canada has sculpted them into a lean, mean live music machine. Whether the band read the crowd and knew they needed more, or simply fed off of the happy, excited energy that permeated the Cherry Cola air, Mad Anthony played for longer than expected — or likely intended — but it was just as long as their thrilled fans needed. Fan favorite “Bear Attack”, and an uncannily awesome cover of “I wanna be your dog” by the Stooges were the stand out songs of the night. From the moment their feet hit the stage to the final reverberation of that last note, Mad Anthony played that show like it was their first, their last, and their best.

Rough, raw, fast, and above all loud; you leave a Mad Anthony show with a ringing in your ears, an aching in your body, and a blurry recollection of what just transpired. Every single note was played with a combination of reckless abandon and relentless dedication. It’s definitely a gift this band possesses; the ability to play every show and give it their all in their signature balls to the wall attitude. It’s what makes them entertaining, and it’s what makes them unforgettable.” -Nadia Elkharadly, Addicted

love,
-Mad Anthony

CANADIAN MUSIC WEEK

thank you to T-Mak world for the kind words…

“”Man does this guy sound like Chris Cornell meets Queens of The Stone Age?” I actually overheard that from a guy next to me talking to his buddy. Not an exact science as to who Ringo Jones sounds like but I guess we can just keep that description on here. The Cincinnati band features wicked dueling guitars, and thunderous drums. Their set totally kicked ass and made Cherry Colas shake and bob. Incredible vocals, incredible drumming, incredible guitar(s). Two beers up for this one! Definitely a highlight of the night, one of our editors has selected this set as his “Gig Of The Night” (more info at bottom of the article).” – Terry Makedon

and also:
“Mad Anthony delivered an energetic set that really stood out for me, three guys that really filled in the sound as a four piece, they are my gig of the night.” – Michael Litt

thanks!
