Maphia welcomes Ticktockman

Very excited to welcome Ticktockman to the Maphia Phamily! Great band out of Seattle of previous Gatsby's American Dream and Wild Orchid Children fame.

Learn a bit about the guys:

Seeking a musical outlet for organized chaos, Ticktockman was created by Ryan Van Wieringen (Gatsbys American Dream, Wild Orchid Children) and Andy Lum (Wild Orchid Children) in 2009. The pair wrote and recorded 5 songs with producer Casey Bates (Portugal the Man) that became the Periscope EP. Finding their voice in fast paced, technical drumming and heavy blues guitar riffs, Ticktockman rounded out its lineup to start playing shows in 2010 by adding Morgan Bruner (Guitar), Brock Lowry (Drums), and Phil Sells (Bass). The energy from these five multi-disciplined prog-rock fiends led to the production of their brand new self-titled album with producer Derek Moree in Seattle, WA. The 11 new songs are a combination of blistering guitar work, groove-based ambience, and brooding, catchy vocals; birthing a record that will make you forget what you know about the state of modern rock music. Dust off your knocking boots, as Ticktockman will be bringing their explosive sound to a stage near you.
