Hailing from Minneapolis, MAL is a 4-piece band that blends noise rock, metal, and prog to produce a wholly unique sound. Formed in late 2019, the power trio plus sax used the time during the pandemic to hone their sound and finish material for their debut, Malbum. Mixing traces of Sleepy Time Gorilla Museum, Bruford era King Crimson, Kenny G’s holiday albums, Cardiacs, and intensely painful friendship, the band created “an angular pop album that hopefully, no one will like.”
