EDITORS’ NOTES

“Here we come, get out of our way,” announces Madball frontman Freddy Cricien on “Freight Train,” a hard-hitting exhortation from the band’s ninth album—their life-affirming statement about fighting for what you believe in. The NYC hardcore kings aren’t just talking about themselves this time. Coproduced by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong—who also appears on the bouncy, punk-inspired “The Fog”—this guest-packed record boasts cameos from Ice-T (on beefy hardcore jag “Evil Ways”) and rapper Sick Jacken of Psycho Realm, who introduces the supercharged call-to-arms “Rev Up.”
