Madchild From Swollen Members
Releases Video For “Jitters”

Tops Canadian iTunes Charts With New Solo Album
"Dope Sick"

Madchild from Canadian hip-hop legends Swollen Members released his debut solo album "Dope Sick" in stores earlier this week via Battle Axe/Suburban Noize Records. The album has already topped the Canadian iTunes album chart, beating out high profile releases from Slaughterhouse and Alanis Morissette for the #1 spot. To celebrate the album's release, Madchild has released his new video for the track "Jitters" online

"It was a great day for the independent guy, as my new solo album is holding down the top spot on iTunes. I can't thank my fans enough for all the support they've shown me over the past few years. I am forever thankful that they have stuck with me and continue to support me regardless of whatever trends are happening in music," said Madchild. "I'm excited to hit the road and play tracks from the record on this upcoming tour with Tech N9ne as he is one of my favorite lyricists and he is one of the hardest working artists in the game! I am really honored and I'm looking forward to this month long tour across the country with him.”

“Dope Sick” was inspired by Madchild's battle with addiction and offers fans an open look at the cold realities of drug abuse. Not only is the album a story of triumph over adversity, but it has allowed Madchild to be reborn creatively. Unshackled from the chains of his past indiscretions, Madchild has confronted his darkest demons and used them as a source of inspiration to create one of the most insanely captivating hip-hop albums of 2012. Fans can stream "Dope Sick" in its entirety online at here.

Madchild is offering fans a limited edition 7" Vinyl version of "Dope Sick" along with a t-shirt and die-cut key ring online at Fans who purchase the album digitally on iTunes will receive the exclusive bonus track, "Out of My Head" featuring production by Aspect.

Madchild will serve as direct support to Tech N9ne on his upcoming Canadian tour throughout September.
