Tentatively titled "Buena Fortuna", the band are expecting an autumn release to coincide with the tour which kicks off in September.
Front man Nathan Leone says "It's been a majestic run and we couldn't be happier or more grateful for everything we've been able to accomplish as Madina Lake". Adding, "That as sad as it is to be closing this chapter, we're much more excited to open the next one".
"Buena Fortuna: marks the bands fifth release in almost ten years together. Debut LP, "From Them Through Us to You" introduced an ambitious trilogy which continued with 2009's "Attics to Eden" and concluded with 2011's "World War III". In 2012 Madina Lake released a book that spelled out the underlying storyline binding each record called "Lila the Divine Game".
After almost five years on the road, the Chicago-based band was forced on haitus in 2010 when bassist Matthew Leone was nearly beaten to death intervening in a domestic dispute. "We'd toured relentlessly before Matthew's incident and ever since, we decided to cut back dramatically to ensure his full recovery."
In 2011, guitarist Mateo Camargo briefly left the band for personal reasons but returned for 2012's "Lila the Divine" tour in the UK.
"Buena Fortuna", which translates to "good luck" in Italian, promises to be an elegant finale to the band's tenure and they plan to announce new endeavours shortly.
