Madball to release new album in June

Madball - For The Cause

NYHC veterans Madball will release their new album, titled For The Cause, late this spring as the effort has now been slated for a June 15 release via Nuclear Blast.

Commented singer Freddy Cricien: "We are beyond excited to finally drop For The Cause! To say we're happy with the end result of all that we put into this, 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!"

The record was mixed and mastered by renowned producer Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studios in Denmark and co-produced by Tim Armstrong (of Rancid), who is also featured on one of the album's songs.

Bass player Hoya Roc added: "We got a real good album. It feels like the movie 'Pulp Fiction'. We've got every style of hardcore in there. It feels like we've got something special!"

Hoya's Pulp Fiction comparison actually made me laugh out loud a little.

For anybody not aware, they've got country artists and shit on this new record. No joke. It's going to be painfully bad.

^Owns a pit bull or a pug, around 100lbs overweight, used to power lift in his late teens before he blew out his knees, XXL and XXXL Hanes beefy shirts, race is ambiguous despite having a Caucasian heritage so pure he could be a white nationalist leader

Nah he looks like character actor Richard Edson - look him up on IMDB.

Madball broke up in 2001 and should've stayed broken up. Funny how they haven't announced who their new permanent guitarist is.

For The Cause? What cause? Being violent gang thugs who ruined NYHC in 1990?

Hey stupid shirt size is based on chest width armpit to armpit not girth.

anonymous

No it's based on shoulder seams

No it's based on chest width armpit to armpit. You could have an 2XL chest and a L waist.

^all reasons to go bespoke every time

Nah just use a tailor's tape measure.

Custom dress shirts and blazers are stupid because your chest width is more or less the same unless you bulk up.

Custom pants is just plain stupid because if you lose weight you'll look stupid in oversized pants.

What if Rick Ta Life showed up to a Madball show in Baltimore? What would really happen?

The drummer isn't a fighter/thug so I doubt he'd go after Rick and I'm guessing the new permanent guitarist would be the same.

Hoya is too heavy to catch up to Rick so it comes down to Freddy, but would Freddy risk prison time and the end of his band by beating up Rick when (Freddy) has a wife and child? I doubt it.

Ezec would fck him up but that'd be the end of Ezec ever seeing his son again because he (Ezec) would go to prison for assault, attempted murder, manslaughter, or murder (depending on how bad he beats up Rick.) His ex-wife who has full custody of his son and/or judge on Earth would ever let Ezec near his kid after that.

Nah that's you homes. Hoya should ask them to sponsor him - they might go for it.

When will the company who makes Madballs sue Madball for copyright/trademark infringement since the band is blatantly using the product's likeness?
