Madball to release new album “For the Cause” in June

New York hardcore legends Madball have announced that their new album For the Cause will be released on June 15th via Nuclear Blast. The record was produced by Tim Armstrong from Rancid, who also guests on the album, along with Body Count‘s Ice-T and Psycho Realm’s Sick Jacken.

Bandleader Freddy Cricien comments:

“We are beyond excited to finally drop ‘For The Cause’!! To say we’re happy with the end result is an understatement! This record accurately defines the current state of our band… our sound, our state of mind, our ambitions, our flaws, and our attitude!

Tim and us go way back, he’s an old friend and super talented guy… across the board! A legend in his own right. He invited us to come record with him and it all fell into place very organically. He’s respected our band from day one and was excited to be a part of this. We’re honored to have him on board.

It’s truly an honor to have Ice-T on our record! I grew up on his music from his early hip hop stuff till now. He’s an iconic figure but also a ‘class ac’, you don’t always get both at once. Ice has a great respect for NYHC and Madball, means the world. This was meant to happen…. real recognizes real.”

The record will be Madball’s first one since 2014’s Hardcore Lives.

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!”
