NYHC kings Madball have confirmed that their new album, entitled For The Cause, will drop June 15th 2018 via Nuclear Blast

Vocalist 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!”

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

Cricien continues: “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.”

Bassist Hoya Roc states: “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!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
