For the younger kids, unaware and swept up in generational gaps, welcome to the band (attitude, sound, lyrics and approach) that we all fell in love with 20+ years ago. For the older guys, those who may have "lost touch" or "grown up", welcome back — some of us never left... and this is our anthem.
I'm beyond honored to have been a part of designing my favorite Madball album to date.
Said none better than Madball frontman, Freddy Cricien, himself;
I've always felt that 'we as a scene' had to scream just a lil louder to be heard! That said, Hardcore Lives at least to us, is not just about a cool 'catchphrase,' it's about that rebellious spirit that doesn't give in... in life, music, whatever. It's about growing, evolving, and maintaining your integrity in the process. It's about family, overcoming adversity, and respect. All the things that matter inside and outside of the music realm. It's for everyone and anyone with an open mind and heart.
