At the end of the eighties, it started as a side project of Agnostic Front, but it isn't fair to call Madball just a 'side project' anymore. The band made an important contribution to the New York hardcore scene and slowly grew into an established name in the worldwide hardcore scene. At the beginning of 2019, Madball played a show in Melkweg, Amsterdam. Online music magazine Smash Press spoke some praising words about this show: "The Oude Zaal of Melkweg has now been transformed into a moshing and dancing crowd and even the stage divers are no longer hesitant to jump." Madball is going to do this show all over again and even more during Jera On Air 2019. And we are very happy with that!
