Madball Posts Trailer For New Album "Hardcore Lives"

NYHC outfit Madball has posted a new video trailer in which the band talks upcoming album, "Hardcore Lives."

The "Hardcore Lives" album is set to be released on June 27th, 2014 via Nuclear Blast and was tracked & engineered by Unearthed guitarist Ken Susi and mixed & mastered by long time collaborator Zeuss. Frontman Freddy Cricien explains the album title as follows:

"I shouted 'Hardcore Lives' on Madball's first release, 'Ball Of Destruction' - I was twelve then. It wasn't pre planned or written down... it was an ad-lib that I just threw out there and we kept it! Back then there was no choice really, not the way we were recording - two track live at Don Fury's... NYHC style! I feel the sentiment behind the expression still holds true today, maybe even more so. Hence the reason we finally chose to use it as a title.

"Sure, it's about waving the flag for our genre/culture, etc. - I've always felt that 'we as a scene' had to scream just a lil louder... to be heard! That said, 'Hardcore Lives' at least to us, is not just about a cool 'catchphrase' - it's about that rebellious spirit that doesn't give in... In life, music, whatever. It's about growing, evolving, and maintaining your integrity in the process. It's about family, overcoming adversity, and respect. All the things that matter inside and outside of the music realm. It's for everyone and anyone with an open mind and heart."
