Latest The Makai News
Below is our complete The Makai news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Seventh Rule Recordings has signed The Makai to their roster. The Makai, from Chico, California will release their first full length "The End of All You Know" in late July on Seventh Rule Recordings. The album will contain 10 tracks.
Forming roughly three years ago, The Makai immediately found an audience within the booming punk rock and metal scene in Chico. Having embarked on an American tour in the summer of 2006, which brought them to two-thirds of the country, the band enjoyed opening slots for such fabled metal groups as Dillinger Escape Plan, High on Fire and Goatwhore. In early 2006, The Makai were awarded a Cammie when they were voted Critic's Choice for Best Band by the Chico News & Review, while guitarist Zeke Rogers was crowned Local Badass via his unwavering support and dedication to Northern California music and community. (Rogers is the founder of the local rock show database Chicolist.com, as well as having been a member or founder of many successful Northern California bands.)
The Makai are gearing up for a late spring/ early summer 2007 tour and are playing along with Seventh Rule labelmates Indian at this year's Emissions from the Monolith Festival at Emo's in Austin, TX May 24-27.
