Madball To Release New Album This Fall

Posted June 23, 2010, 3:15 a.m. in Records by Jon E.

Madball have set “Empire” as the title to their new album which they are aiming to release through Good Fight Music in late September/early October. The group are currently wrapping up pre-production for the outing and will enter Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL next month to begin recording it with Erik Rutan (Nile, Through The Eyes Of The Dead) at the helm.

Band vocalist Freddy Cricien commented on “Empire” with the following:

Empire will play off of the name. Madball has come a long way from being street kids to becoming very established in our genre, and even beyond the music. We’re finally at a point in our life where we’re taking control of our things, where as before we didn’t have control of some things or didn’t choose to have control. We have the feeling that we’ve built a little empire for ourselves with our band, brand, and different endeavors.

We get this reference that we’re kings of New York… There are plenty of awesome bands that have come out of the city. Agnostic Front are the godfathers of New York hardcore, Sick Of it All are one of the undisputed champs of the scene… we were always known as more of the bad guys, but now people are calling us the kings. It’s not a title we gave ourselves and it’s not that we call ourselves that, but it’s just a term of endearment and respect that people use and it plays into the name Empire.”
