Speaking on the release of their latest album, TWIZTID‘s Jamie Madrox shares:
“Unlikely Prescription” has been the craziest journey so far! The album has yielded the most singles for us as a band to date with a few of them already seeing some mainstream radio luv, bringing even more awareness to who we are and what we’re here to do.”
TWIZTID‘s drummer, Drayven adds:
“A lot of artists are afraid to change, afraid to push their sound but from working with TWIZTID I can say they are the opposite. Every album they do has a different sound, a different vibe, and a different style. “Unlikely Prescription” is the next evolution of TWIZTID. They know some will love it and some will hate it and they embrace both. They wanted heavier songs, they wanted bigger production, they wanted to push their voices in different ways, and I think this album really shows the range of what these guys can do. The album has some amazing guest vocals, awesome guest musicians, great producers, and top-notch engineers. If you don’t give this album a listen because you think you “know” TWIZTID you are missing out and I feel bad for you.”
The TWIZTID tale is gritty and fascinating folklore, built on self-determination, fearless creativity, and the elimination of the boundaries between artist and audience. The dedicated supporters who stand with co-conspirators Jamie Madrox and Monoxide are more than fans: they are family. The duo remembers what it meant to be part of the crowd before they leaped the barricades onto the stage themselves, and with unrelenting passion and aggression, they’re taking all of us with them.
There’s a rogue’s gallery of hooks, rhythms, and riffs in the TWIZTID bag of tricks. For 25 years, they’ve concocted artistic anarchy rooted in the streetwise storytelling sophistication of hip-hop, trance-inducing hypnotic beats, and the seething bite of hard rock rage. Merging horror movies, comics, and a level of depravity and violence rivaling the grimiest of pulp fiction in the annals of Americana, TWIZTID is the reflection of a tightly knit subculture and the sound of unbridled id.
TWIZTID spins emotional truth into even the wildest of tales, resulting in something endlessly relatable to the alienated and disenfranchised. The music, multimedia, and merchandise originate from their own Majik Ninja Entertainment, headquartered in their native Detroit.
With over a dozen entries on the Billboard charts, 167 million career streams, and 148 million Youtube views, TWIZTID built themselves into an institution, without the help of mainstream gatekeepers at MTV, traditional radio, or major press. They’ve brought their adrenaline-soaked, unbound artistic mania on the road, with metalcore, acts like Motionless In White, and on the Vans Warped Tour, all without forsaking the worldwide family they helped strengthen during their initial decade-plus on Psychopathic Records. TWIZTID built the connection they maintain with their fiercely dedicated legion of supporters to last and to evolve. Everything Majik Ninja does harkens back to that original impulse shared by Monoxide and Jamie Madrox: to make art that swings a big ax at the boundary between audience and artist.
