Band Bio

A full version of the band bio can be found here.

Madame Psychosis is a five-piece alt pop & indie rock band from Toronto. The band first made waves with their self-titled debut album, released in June of 2017. Alan Cross, the internationally syndicated host of The Ongoing History of New Music, selected the single “Space Motorcycle” for his weekly Top 11 Playlist in August of 2017.

Coming off the heels of this positive reception, Madame Psychosis was invited to perform on the nationally televised segment of Global’s The Morning Show in January 2019. They were also selected to perform at Canadian Music Week in May 2019 and cracked Dropout Entertainment’s Top Picks for CMW 2019.

Madame Psychosis is now turning their attention to promoting Survivor, their new sophomore album, which was released on September 20th, 2019. In their album review, RX Music says, “the band sound better than ever, with memorable hooks that reward repeated listens, and an elevated chemistry fans will appreciate.” LA-based Buzz Music says, “The musicianship on this project is consistently flawless, whether the moment is high energy or more of a subtle, intentional gathering of layers.”

You can find Madame Psychosis on all major streaming services.
