Madrugada was a Norwegian alternative rock band formed in the town of Stokmarknes in 1993. The key band members included Sivert Høyem (vocals), Robert Burås (guitar) and Frode Jacobsen (bass). After Burås' death on July 12, 2007, Høyem and Jacobsen decided to finish recording what was to be their final album. Entitled simply Madrugada, it was released on January 21, 2008 and following this, the band announced they would split after one last tour. They performed their final concert on November 15, 2008. According to Anders Kaasen of Allmusic, the band was noted for "its bareboned blues-inspired alt-rock" at the end of the 1990s.
