New York City hardcore act Madball has announced several upcoming headlining summer tour dates and festival shows. The band will kick off the run in St. Louis, MO on August 8th and will tour through the Midwest, ending in Philadelphia, PA on August 14th at “This Is Hardcore” Fest.
We’re excited to be doing more festivals like this in the states,
states vocalist Freddy Cricien.
I think these kinds of shows are great for the genre/scene. We just came back from Europe from doing a few big festivals and we’ll be back there in July for more, before the states tour. Europe has been on to something for years, with regard to having hardcore bands on this kind of platform. Hopefully this trend continues and grows in the states. I am one of the promoters of the BnB bowl in NYC. We’ve tried to set an example for years now with that event. Hopefully, we can do it ‘open air’ proper style some day! See you all in the Midwest, either at a fest or club show. Come through!
