In support of their strong 'The Deep End' album, Madrugada now head out on an extensive 26-date European tour.

Madrugada are also set to play Tromsø’s 46664 Arctic Nelson Mandela tribute festival in June alongside such artists as Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox, Bono and Queen.
With domestic sales in excess of 70 000 copies since the late February launch of Madrugada's fourth album, 'The Deep End', it is a confident and eager band that heads out on an Extensive European tour in May. With gigs in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg and Greece, Madrugada are set to reach out to the band's loyal following, a following that has been built up the old-fashioned way over the last five years; non-stop touring and world-class performances in Europe as well as the US. Madrugada enjoy particularly strong followings in Germany and Greece but other territories have also opened up, resulting in healthy sales and a loyal audience.
Madrugada are also scheduled to play a high-profile support slot gig at this summer’s REM concert at the Ullevål Stadium on 22 June.
