Midwife Unveils Cover of Chevelle’s “Send the Pain Below,” Announces North American Tour Dates

By March 24, 2022 Culture, News

Multi-instrumentalist Midwife (Madeline Johnston) continues her forward-moving momentum with the release of her “Send the Pain Below” cover song and a new North American tour announcement.  Putting her trademark crystalline flair on the 2002 hit song, “Send the Pain Below” (Chevelle)Midwife closes out the 6-song nu metal covers collection from The Flenser.

Midwife recently completed a full U.S. tour supporting Deafheaven and now will prepare to hit the road once again, this time supporting The Body.  Tour dates span May 5th through June 4th and include two stops in Canada as well as all corners of the United States— check out a full list of tour dates below.

Midwife is the moniker of Madeline Johnston, who lives and works in San Miguel, New Mexico by way of Denver, Colorado, where she spent the better half of the past decade developing the experimental pop project.  Last June, Midwife released her sophomore Flenser full-length Luminol.  Pensive and hypnotic, the album showcases Johnston’s musical prowess at its finest and is both dream-like and dispiriting.
