Freddy Madball Still Fighting "For The Cause"

Many music fans like to claim that they "live and breathe" it. Very few people however, have literally done so. Having gone on tour with his brother Roger Miret's group Agnostic Front from the age of seven before the aforementioned band decided to form a side project named Madball with the youngster on vocals in 1988, Freddy Cricien has been involved in hardcore music for almost his entire life.

Thirty years and nine full length albums later, Madball are as popular and revered as ever. Their latest album, "For The Cause" has been hailed as their most diverse yet, staying true to their sound while showing flashes of other genres such as reggae. Last night in Bristol, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Freddy himself to discuss the new album, how the search for a new guitarist is going and what makes New York hardcore the most popular scene in the world. You can watch it below.

Diamond Oz: Well straight into it, the new album, "For The Cause" is out now. It's been out for a little while now, so how's the reception been to it overall?

Freddy Madball: It came out in the Summer and we've been touring it ever since.

Oz: It's a real solid album. Possibly the most diverse album yet, probably the most obvious example would be "Rev Up" where you've got the reggae at the beginning.

Freddy: Yeah, there's a lot of examples on there I think. It's definitely the most diverse, I can't think of another record we've done that's more diverse but it still has all the elements that make us who we are so I'm extremely proud of this one. It's being well received, I wouldn't say it's "been well received" because it's still reaching people.
