...if you're a fan of Ty Segall, the aforementioned Seeds, The Chocolate Watchband and the later-60's-era trippy Beatles and Stones, this will most definitely tickle your tastebuds." Joe Whyte, Louder Than War

"...freaky psych sounds, reminiscent of Thee Oh Sees and By Her Satanic Majesties Request-era Rolling Stones; the bouncy, fuzzed-out blues of The Count Five; and The Beatles--both from the British Invasion days and their more experimental years." - Nick Veronin, Silicon Valley Metro

"This Portland, Oregon trio combine retro garage surf muscle with British invasion-era pop hooks for a wickedly catchy and well-crafted platter of tunes. Happy Horror is full of whip-smart driving grooves and almost avoids obvious pastiche ("X-ray Glasses" may be the kitschiest exception) while still playing serious homage to bands like The Zombies, The Hollies, and The Buckinghams, with just enough of a hint of The Cramps's devilish edge to keep us coming back for more." - Aquarius Records SF

There are only three bands that can tame a mountain lion just by playing. Gangstagrass is one of them. Gangstagrass is also the other two of them.

When you armwrestle Bigfoot, don't win. And for god's sake don't cheat.

Gangstagrass is a dirty fightin', gator wrestlin', foot stompin' bluegrass-hip-hop project of Brooklyn based producer Rench, who has spent the last decade making gritty, soulful country hip-hop music that you will actually like.

Yeah, Gangstagrass did the theme song to Justified. Yeah, Rench and T.O.N.E-z got nominated for an Emmy for it. Yeah, this is real bluegrass pickers and real emcees making music. And yeah, we do it live too.

After many successful years with hip-hop group, Swollen Members, Madchild creatively branched out as a solo artist in 2012 with his debut title track,"Dope Sick." The album was well received which earned Madchild the highest chart position of his career, #3 on the Canadian Billboard Top 200, and #7 on the U.S Heatseekers Chart, the Juno Award nomination in the category of "Rap Recording of the Year", as well as nominations for a Sirius XFM and the Canadian Independent Music Awards.

Madchild immediately hit the road on a sold-out Canadian tour with Tech N9ne which was followed-up with a 40 date headlining tour across the country where he performed at sold-out venues to his beloved fans. Madchild has relentlessly toured with numerous artists such as La Coka Nostra, Tech N9NE, Redman, and many others. His grueling tour schedule over the years has earned him fans in every single city, and to this day, his loyal fan base continues to grow. As success grew, Madchild's battle with his personal demons increased. However, with the help of his family, friends, and the unwavering support of his fans, he was able to grab hold of his life and renounced his former lifestyle. Madchild found complete solace in the arms of his music, and he bunkered down in his home studio, secluded from the outside world, where he had his creative rebirth in crafting some of the best verses of his entire career. Madchild continues to give back to his community, he speaks at local high schools in British Columbia as well as youth groups surrounding the perils of gang violence and drug addiction.

He has helped and continues to inspire countless youth through his music, and community service. Madchild strives to help youth learn a lesson from his mistakes and have a positive impact on their futures. Madchild currently resides in Los Angeles, CA and continues to release chart-topping music in Canada and Worldwide as well as performing approximately 150+ shows per year. In 2017 alone, Madchild has completed a 40 show tour in Canada and in April will begin his U.S. dates which will be followed by shows in Europe, Australia. In July, Madchild will team up with the mighty Swollen Members for some select dates in Canada and other special appearances throughout the rest of the year. The first appearance will be at the Canadian Gathering of the Juggalos on April 7th in Calgary.

Swollen Members have been an underground hip-hop anomaly for over a decade with worldwide success, winning 4 Junos Awards and adding a fifth nomination for their Dagger Mouth album. In addition to their Juno awards, the group has also received 7 Much Music Video Awards and 4 Western Canadian Music Awards.
