Fast Break Records has announced a split 7” between Madball and Wisdom In Chains. “The Family Biz 7” ” is to be released on Sept 25th, with the split will feature one new song from each group. Pre-orders are up now.

“For The Cause” is Madball‘s effort. Speaking on the track, front-man Freddy Cricien said “it’s about staying the course and fighting for what you love and are passionate about. It’s a theme that you’ll hear a lot throughout our next album. Utilizing negativity and the obstacles you face as inspiration. ‘Say I can’t, say I won’t again.. Give me the fuel that I need to ascend!”.

“Someday” is Wisdom In Chains’ contribution to the split. Vocalist Mad Joe Black says that the track is “about not living in the past and not fixating on the future. Look at what you have in your life and appreciate the good things and work hard to improve what needs improving. It kind of represents that hardcore work ethic that bands like Madball are known for.” Speaking on the bond between both bands Black added “Madball means the world to us. They have helped WIC out countless times. This is a very special release for us and I can’t wait for people to hear BOTH songs! Hardcore lives!”

Wisdom In Chains cancels European tour

Talk about a bummer for European fans of hardcore act Wisdom In Chains.  The band is having to cancel their European tour in August due to vocalist Joe’s job.  Here’s the full statement from the band:

“We have bad news. Sorry to all our friends in Europe, all the promoters who booked us, our booking agent, and everyone else involved. We have to cancel our European tour in August. After being laid off from work for two years, our singer Joe was finally called back in. When he went back to work, he mentioned the tour to his boss (normally with this kind of work, its no problem), at the time the boss said it would be no problem. Just yesterday his boss said to him that if he wants to stay working, he shouldn’t do the tour. So due to a lot of financial problems he just cannot afford to lose that job (even though working for a dick sucks). We are very sorry, and we where really looking forward to being there this summer. Hopefully somehow we will arrange something over there soon.”

The tour was in support of the band’s latest album, “The Missing Links”, released in March by I Scream Records.  No word on whether the dates will be rescheduled.

Album Review: Wisdom In Chains – “The Missing Links”

Don’t you dare try to look away!

PA’s favorite sons Wisdom In Chains are back with their new album “The Missing Links” (I Scream). In case you live under a rock, this is probably the best band in hardcore at the moment. If you’ve had a shitty day or hate your job, come home and throw this on. You’ll quickly remember to stay inspired and who or what you are working for. Widsom In Chains take that beaten down feeling and turn the scars into a badge, the job of all the greatest hardcore. Richie Krutch, Mad Joe Black and the boys really deliver the near impossible, which is to make a record that can follow up the incredibly good “Everything You Know” album.

The breakdowns are hot off the grill in an old school way. The guitar tones are big but still punk. Bottom line, you hear this shit and you just know what needs to happen on the floor. Anyone who saw Wisdom In Chains kill it on their recent dates with Blood For Blood knows what I am talking about. This band just makes me warm and fuzzy with thoughts that the best traits of hardcore’s vital pedigree lives on in this band. This is what the genre is about.

Highlights of “The Missing Links” are many. The record talks about personal and social issues, honor and not being an empty shell. The full guns blazing WIC we know and love is present on songs like “Peace To My Family” and the inspiring road song “Traveling”, while the title track adds artistic dynamic range via atmospheric guitar elements that almost reminded me of Metallica’s “One”. It is a captivating track about not submitting to lower human instinct.”Can’t Bring Me Down” is an angry dirge that will get you riled up as hell at people who have a superiority complex and drag you down.”Snakes” is one of the best songs the band has ever written, with vocalist Mad Joe Black screaming the truly awesome and hard to not love opening lines of,”You dumb motherfucker! You sold it all for a bowl of beans! Now you gotta live with it.”

Plus, as evidenced on “Ghost Of Buddy” Wisdom In Chains continue to prove that they write the best hardcore songs about dogs.

Go buy this as soon as you can.
