> The Real American Hardcore
This exclusive 7" entitled The Real American Hardcore is the precursor to New York City hardcore legends MADBALLs Nuclear Blast debut this October, appropriately entitled Empire. "Empire will play off of the name," points out 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. Were finally at a point in our life where were taking control of our things, whereas before we didnt have control of some things or didnt choose to have control. We have the feeling that weve built a little empire for ourselves with our band, brand, and different endeavors." The members of MADBALL are icons in the underground and that underground now spills forth into the streets. The Real American Hardcore will feature two songs from their upcoming LP Empire. Side A will have "R.A.H.C." one of their most in-your-face songs ever and Side B will have "All Or Nothing" which, without any doubt, will be going into the books as another all-time MADBALL classic.
