N.Y. hardcore ambassadors, Madball have announced co-headlining dates for August with Virginia’s Municipal Waste. The east coast/Canadian run will include an appearance at TheHeavy MTL festival (aka Heavy Montreal) which will have Metallica and Slayer as headliners.
These dates will come after the release of Madball’s latest album Hardcore Lives to be released June 27th via The Black N Blue Label (in U.S.) and Nuclear Blast (in Europe). The first official Madball full-length to drop in four years, Hardcore Lives has been eagerly anticipated by fans and peers alike. Some advance praise of the album includes UFC Heavyweight, Andrei Arlovski who called Hardcore Lives “pure aggressive street style!!” while Tim Armstrong of Rancid/The Transplants weighed in as well saying “I always look forward to hearing their new records and this one is absolutely brutal.”
