Madball "For The Cause"

Maintaining urgency, authenticity, and integrity has never been an issue for New York City's hardest, and hardest working band, Madball. Twenty-five years along as a recording and touring entity, Madball brings forth its ninth aural chapter, "For The Cause"; a signature collection of lionhearted, groove-laden, street-level New York hardcore as only Madball can bring it. The aptly titled album doesn't so much revisit where the group has been since 1994 - although Madball released its first EP, "Ball Of Destruction," as a virtual Agnostic Front side project back in 1989 - but forges forward and represents where the fellas find themselves collectively and personally a quarter-decade down the road.
