Madball have released a lyric video for their hard-hitting new track Old Fashioned.

It’s been taken from the New York hardcore outfit’s upcoming album For The Cause, which is set to arrive on June 15 via Nuclear Blast.

Vocalist Freddy Cricien says: “We are beyond excited to finally drop For The Cause! To say we're happy with the end result is an understatement! This record accurately defines the current state of our band, our sound, our state of mind, our ambitions, our flaws, and our attitude!”

For The Cause was mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studios in Denmark and was co-produced by Rancid vocalist and guitarist Tim Armstrong, who also guests on one of the album tracks.

Cricien says: “Tim and us go way back – he's an old friend and super talented guy... across the board! A legend in his own right. 

“He invited us to come record with him and it all fell into place very organically. He's respected our band from day one and was excited to be a part of this. We're honoured to have him on board.”

Madball will head out on tour later this month, with dates planned in the US and across Europe.
