Madchild Maps Out Canadian Tour, Shares New Video

Madchild Maps Out Canadian Tour, Shares New Video
As Madchild counts down the days until the July 24 release of Silver Tongue Devil on Battle Axe, the ever-busy Vancouver rapper has announced plans to support it with a lengthy Canadian tour. He's also rolled out a music video.

Madchild will spend most of the summer in the U.S., and he also has a couple of shows with Swollen Members (including a Canadian appearance at Chilliwack, BC's Electric Love Music Festival).

Then, in September and October, he will embark upon a headlining Canadian tour that will last for a little more than a month and includes shows in British Columbia, Quebec and every province in between. See the full itinerary below. It will feature opening sets from Demrick, Adlib and Saskatchewan-based MC Pimpton.

At the bottom of the page, watch a clip for the Silver Tongue Devil track "Lose My Mind." In it, Madchild admits, "This is not a good time lose my mind," and he mugs for the camera amidst flickering, colourful effects.
"The video for 'Lose My Mind' was just a fun and energetic video. I wanted to touch on the feel I was working on when I started my solo career and started making videos on Dopesick" said Madchild in a statement. "My man Jesse Ray Diamond helped take that original feel and developed it. He took it to whole new level and the video captures that feeling and time period."
