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.
Reigning from New Jersey/New York Ill Niño are a force to be reckoned with. "Dead New World" will be their 5th international full length. "Revolution Revolucion" marked what was the beginning for these founding fathers of Latin metal. The band continues strong 10 years later. The fans are what drives Ill Niño to dominate after a decade. They show no signs of letting up as critics have rated their newest record "Dead New World" one of the BEST IN THEIR CAREER!
SUNFLOWER DEAD hail from the Southern California Metal/Hard Rock scene and are no strangers to having their brand of music draw attention. The band is a rebirth of sorts. Three-fifths of the band rise from the ashes of former nationally recognized touring acts DROID and Two Hit Creeper. They are rounded out by additional band members who have toured internationally with Buckethead and In This Moment. Their former bands have earned national recognition by touring alongside Korn, Linkin Park and the Vans Warped Tour. SUNFLOWER DEAD are no strangers to the commitment needed or drive required to win over fans with their own brand of hard rock.
