Madchild’s new album Demons chronicles his battle with prescription drugs addiction

Juno award-winning rapper Madchild will be performing at Main Street Nightclub this Saturday in support of his upcoming new album.

Demons, which was recently released on his own label, Battle Axe Records, chronicles his battle with prescription drugs addiction.
