Madball signs w/ Ferret Music
New York City hardcore band Madball has officially signed with Ferret Music. Formed in 1989, the group has released albums with Roadrunner Records and Epitaph Records, among others. Here's a statement from Ferret owner, Carl Severson: "I remember skating back from Vintage Vinyl in NJ with Mike Olender (future vocalist of Burnt By The Sun) after picking up the first Madball EP on vinyl. I couldn't wait to get home and play it, I've bought every album since and I still feel the same, I can't wait to hear the new album! Ferret is a young, aggressive label and Madball is still a young, aggressive band ready to take over the world." Madball's new album, "Legacy," will be recorded in May with producer Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall). Says vocalist Freddy Cricien of the new material: "Personally, I feel like it's our best material. It's still heavy, it's still in your face and talks about real life, but it also has groove and really heavy production."
