The Canadian leg of Madchild’s North American tour kicks off in Vancouver Sept. 10


Vancouver, BC – Canadian hip-hop veteran Madchild (of Swollen Members) is back on the road for a North American tour just shy of 40-dates.

After a performance inside Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory last night, Madchild will spend today promoting the new album before heading to Thornville, Ohio for the Gathering of the Juggalos. From there he’ll bang out 2 more US dates before a stop with Swollen at Chilliwack, BC’s Electric Love Music Festival on August 1. After that we’re looking at another 6 US shows before a long string of Canadian dates kicks off September 10 in Vancouver. We’re still looking for confirmation, but we expect Madchild’s tour DJ, DJ Dow Jones, will be on hand each step of the way.

Madchild is currently promoting his third studio album, Silver Tongue Devil, released today through Battle Axe Records earlier today and distributed by Sony Music Entertainment Canada.
