NYHC legends MADBALL have posted a new video trailer in which the band talks the guest appearances on their upcoming album, »Hardcore Lives«: Another trailer in which the band talks the album is available here: Check out the official lyric video for 'DNA' here: An in-studio trailer can be watched here: »Hardcore Lives« is set to be released on June 27, 2014 via Nuclear Blast and was tracked & engineered by famed UNEARTH guitarist Ken Susi and mixed & mastered by long time collaborator Zeuss (HATEBREED, AGNOSTIC FRONT, SOULFLY, TERROR, WHITECHAPEL...). Official promo photos were taken by LAMB OF GOD's very own Randall D. Blythe.

 Iconic frontman, Freddy Cricien, explains the album title as follows: „I shouted "Hardcore Lives" on MADBALL's first release, »Ball Of Destruction« - I was twelve then. It wasn't pre planned or written down... it was an ad-lib that I just threw out there and we kept it! Back then there was no choice really, not the way we were recording - two track live at Don Fury's... NYHC style! I feel the sentiment behind the expression still holds true today, maybe even more so. Hence the reason we finally chose to use it as a title. Sure, it's about waving the flag for our genre/culture, etc. - 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.“ 

 »Hardcore Lives« will be available as limited edition digipak and on black vinyl, both including two additional bonus tracks: 'The Beast' which also appeared on 2012's EP »Rebellion« and 'Spit On Your Grave' from 1994's landmark release »Set It Off« - both tracks have been exclusively re-recorded for the inclusion on »Hardcore Lives«.
