New York City hardcore legends MADBALL are set to release their GOOD FIGHT MUSIC debut this fall, appropriately entitled Empire. The record is tentatively set for release in late September or early October of 2010. "Empire will play off of the name," points vocalist Freddy Cricien. "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..." adds Cricien. "There are plenty of awesome bands that have come out of the city... Agnostic Front were the godfathers of New York hardcore, Sick of it All... 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.
Mid-Western heaviness combining the groove of NYHC and west coast styled fast parts, a band that would have felt right at home during the 07/08 California explosion that brought us Violation, Downpresser, Creatures, etc. New 7 inch out soon on Six Feet Under Records.
