is a Christian band formed in 1987 in Southern
California by brothers Roger and Randy Rose. They have released
studio albums, one retrospective album, and two multi-disc
reissues. Their musical styles varied over the years, beginning
electronic synthpop on their first two albums Mad at the World and Flowers in the Rain. Then, in
order to have a sound more amiable for live performances, the band's
musical style shifted to hard rock on Seasons
of Love, Boomerang,
and Through the Forest. The
last two albums The Ferris Wheel
and The Dreamland Cafe have
an alternative rock sound to them, with Dreamland having more of a retro
60's, power pop style of music.
a long hiatus, MATW is back!
A Kickstarter campaign is currently being developed. Initially,
Roger and Randy plan on recording a synthpop album along the lines of
Depeche Mode/Kraftwerk. Depending on its success and continued support,
the plan is to release two more albums with a familiar change in
musical styles to eventually record an all out rock album. Other
members of MATW would be involved in the last two releases as well.
More information coming soon -- check back for details.
