Madball Wisdom In Chains family biz split artwork

Fast Break Records has announced a forthcoming split 7" from two titans of the scene. The Family Biz 7" joins NYHC kings Madball with PA's blue-collar-core heroes, Wisdom In Chains. Out now, the split features one new song from each group.

"For The Cause" from Madball will be the title of the group's forthcoming album. This version of the title track was recorded just for the 7" and is a precursor of what to expect. Speaking on the track, front-man Freddy Cricien said, "it's about staying the course and fighting for what you love and are passionate about. It's a theme that you'll hear a lot throughout our next album. Utilizing negativity and the obstacles you face as inspiration. Say I can't, say I won't again.. Give me the fuel that I need to ascend!"

Speaking on the long-standing camaraderie with Wisdom In Chains Cricien said, "we're cut from a similar cloth and there's a genuine respect and friendship amongst us. WIC is one of my favorite HC bands!"

"Someday" is Wisdom In Chains contribution to the split. Vocalist Mad Joe Black says that the track is "about not living in the past and not fixating on the future. Look at what you have in your life and appreciate the good things and work hard to improve what needs improving. It kind of represents that hardcore work ethic that bands like Madball are known for." Speaking on the bond between both bands Black added, "Madball means the world to us. They have helped WIC out countless times. This is a very special release for us and I can't wait for people to hear BOTH songs! Hardcore lives!"

These tracks will not be previewed or premiered before street date so make sure to pre-order your copy. European fans can also order a limited green version of the 7" via the Nuclear Blast webstore in that region. Be on the lookout for news in the near future regarding Madball's full-length album (to drop via Nuclear Blast in 2018).
