Since the release of their eighth full studio album ‘Hardcore Lives’ Madball have been bringing their raw live energy to venues and festivals across the US and Europe. ‘Hardcore Lives’ is out now and has been well received with Kerrang! stating: ‘Hardcore lives, and Madball can take a lot of credit for it.
