"When I heard The Madcap‘s debut single “Rock N’ Roll Revolution” more than a year ago, I thought that this was a band that could potentially rival Steel Panther in terms of writing catchy hooks, melodies and cool guitar riffs."

The band was originally formed in May 2015 and that same year they made it to the semifinals of the TV Show Rising Star 2015. One year later, in the semifinals of Rising Star 2016, the single "Stepped On A Lego” was launched, when they were invited to the show as guest act. In the Hard Rock Rising, a global music contest hosted by well-known chain Hard Rock Café, The Madcap got the votes from both jury and audience and won the Hard Rock Rising Local Champion 2016 title,
It started for real with the music video release for the song ”Put The Blame On Me” on the 19th of May 2017.
