Mad Temple is summoning the spirit of hard rock and raw energy. Founded in 2006, the band has earned its reputation as one of SoCal’s must-see acts. Extensive touring has included stops at South by Southwest, The South Texas Rock Festival, and The Sunset Strip Music Festival in their hometown of L.A. They’ve played it all, from intimate venues to sprawling festivals, the one constant being their pledge to rock out every time they hit the stage. Their gigs have made them a favorite with thrill-seekers, and their melodic sound—a collision of big riffs and sharp hooks—have put them on rotation with college radio stations across the country. The press has described their music as “a war cry that bleeds attitude and aggression.” Mad Temple consists of frontman Kiliyan Maguire, guitarists “Stonehand” Andrew and Bryant Joel, drummer Jeff Dewbray, and bassist Jeff Subauste. As the band continues to grow locally and state-side, they’re jumping on every chance to play in front of a live audience; they’ll be coming to a town near you!
