Madball To Release New Album, "Empire," This Fall

New York City hardcore legends Madball are set to release their new album, titled "Empire", this fall on Good Fight Music. "Empire" will be the first release for Madball on Good Fight Music but will be the band's eighth studio effort overall. "Empire" is currently scheduled for release in late September or early October.

Vocalist and founding member Freddy Cricien had the following to say:
“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.”

Madball are currently finishing the writing process, and will enter Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida to record in early July. "Empire" will be produced by Eric Rutan, famous for his work with Misery Index, Cannibal Corpse and Goatwhore amongst many others.
