Madina Lake are a four-piece Alternative Rock group from Chicago, Illinois. Their debut album From Them, Through Us, To You is set for release on March 27, 2007 via Roadrunner Records.

Formed in 2005, Madina Lake is comprised of twin brothers in vocalist Nathan and bassist Matthew Leone, guitarist Mateo Camargo and drummer Daniel Torelli.

The band signed with Roadrunner Records in August 2005, and released their debut EP The Disappearance of Adalia on August 22, 2006. The band was granted permission by Roadrunner to release the six track disc independently. The EP is available at their live shows or online at smartpunk.com or interpunk.com, as well as digitally via iTunes, Napster and Rhapsody.

The band's debut album From Them, Through Us, To You is set for release on March 27, 2007. It was originally slated for an August 2006 release. The album was produced, engineered and mixed by Mark Trombino.

Madina Lake currently has its music video for One Last Kiss playlisted on the playlist of UK Rock Channel Scuzz and the music video for House Of Cards playlisted on UK Rock Channel Kerrang TV and US network MTV.

The band itself sets its music in a town created in the mind of the bass player, Matthew Leone. It is set high in the American mountains, and, isolated from human contact, has remained in a 1950s themed era. The music provides an outlet for the band's views on politics, culture, and the media's obsession with celebrity status, a theme dealt with in the form of a murder mystery, the theme behind the band's aforementioned self-released EP, The Disappearance of Adalia.
