Southgang 2.0 bassist Brian Kirtland joins Mad Margritt
Atlanta, Georgia, USA based rockers Mad Margritt have announced today that they have a new bassist in Brian Kirtland who will be replacing Matt Aebi.
The following was posted on Mad Margritt‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“****Mad Margritt News- HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT***
We are very proud to introduce everyone to the newest member of Mad Margritt, bassist Brian Kirtland!! Brian is also a member of Southgang 2.0 along with original Southgang singer Jesse Harte and Mad Margritt guitarist Mark Cook. Brian also was a member of Byte The Bullet back in the late 80’s along with Jesse Harte and Butch Walker. That band eventually went on to become Southgang and had several hits on MTV including “Tainted Angel”. We are really excited to have Brian on board with us. His first show with Mad Margritt will be July 15th at Red & Terry’s Timbers so be sure to come on out and say hello to him!!! We want to thank Matt Aebi for his 2 years of service in the Mad Margritt Army and we wish him nothing but the best on all his future endeavors. Matt will still be performing shows in the Atlanta area with Iron Mullet and Arena as well as his solo acoustic shows.”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Mad Margritt‘s latest studio album Love, Hate & Deception: “Instantly likeable — that is a nutshell the best way to describe Mad Margritt‘s new album Love, Hate And Deception. If you are longing for some classic ’80s era tunes with an updated fresh sound, Mad Margritt are just what the doctor ordered for you! I’ve known of the name Mad Margritt for some time given that my predecessor Skid covered them regularly on Sleaze Roxx since 2005 but this was the first time that I really listened to them. All I can say is “Wow!” It’s like finding a treasure right in your own backyard. You didn’t know it was there but upon reflection, you wonder how come it took so long to find this treasure that was right underneath your nose the whole time.”
You can purchase Love, Hate & Deception via Perris Records‘ website.
