~ HISTORY ~

The band released their debut cd "Cold Sweat" in October 1997 on their own record label Rock Hard Records. Several radio stations across The United States and Europe began playing tracks from "Cold Sweat" and before long it caught the attention of Delinquent Records who offered the band a recording contract.

In July 1999, Mad Margritt released their first full-length cd on Delinquent Records entitled, “In The Name Of Rock”. It was followed by the band's first US Tour. During the 1999-2001 tour, Mad Margritt opened up shows for several noted acts including Ratt, Cinderella, Great White, Warrant, Slaughter, Quiet Riot, Skid Row, The Bullet Boys, Tesla, Every Mothers Nightmare, and Pretty Boy Floyd. They were also featured in several national publications including Metal Edge and Spin Magazine. Among some of their other accomplishments, they were voted "Best Rock Band" at the Atlanta Rock Awards and nominated for two awards at the South Florida Rock Awards.

While performing at the Ultra-Sound Music Conference in Las Vegas, Mad Margritt caught the eye of Perris Records president Tom Mathers. Tom offered the band a deal to release their next cd on Perris and added Mad Margritt to an already impressive roster (Perris Records has released cd's by Warrant, LA Guns, Enuff Z Nuff, Pretty Boy Floyd, Love/Hate, Every Mothers Nightmare, Roxx Gang, and several others.)

In June 2002, Mad Margritt was featured on the Perris Records compilation “ Bon Appetite: A Tribute To The Bon Scott Years Of AC/DC ”. Later that year they released their next full-length cd entitled “New Sensation”. The band then embarked on another US tour that included shows with KISS, Poison, Whitesnake, Warrant, Slaughter, Great White, Bret Michaels, and Kip Winger.

In July of 2004, Mad Margritt was featured on the Perris Records compilation “Hollywood Hairspray Volume 3”. The band released their next full length cd in January 2005 entitled “Straight Through The Heart” (a best of cd that featured two new songs). During the “Straight Through The Heart” tour, Mad Margritt performed shows with Poison, Cinderella, Quiet Riot, Ratt, and Stephan Pearcy.

The band's current release is entitled “Animal”. The cd was released September 25, 2007 on Perris Records and is being distributed in the USA by Select-O-Hits, The UK by Plastic Head Music, Italy by Andromeda, Greece by Soundforge Music Group, Spain by Border, The Netherlands by Bertus, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium by ZYX Music.

Mad Margritt has begun work on their first project with Ratt/Warrant producer Beau Hill. Drummer Chad Wedlake flew out to Los Angeles, California last week to record his drum tracks. Engineering the session was former Rod Stewart drummer Tony Brock.
