    Madball is an American New York hardcore band that originated in the late 1980s as a side project of the band Agnostic Front. The band developed after Agnostic Front’s front man, Roger Miret would let his half brother Freddy Cricien take the mic and perform lead vocals during Agnostic Front shows. Madball consisted of AF’s vocalist Roger Miret on bass, Vinnie Stigma on guitar, Will Shepler on drums and then 12-year-old vocalist Freddy Cricien, Roger’s younger half-brother. Madball’s first shows consisted of previously unused Agnostic Front songs. Their first release was the Ball of Destruction EP in 1989. After years of playing shows in the NY area, a second guitarist, Matt Henderson, joined. At that point they had recorded and released the EP, “Droppin’ Many Suckers” for Wreck-Age Records. A year later Roger Miret left and was replaced by bass player Jorge “Hoya Rock” Guerra. The new incarnation of the band was signed by Roadrunner Records in 1994 and released a pair of full lengths; Set It Off in 1994 and Demonstration My Style in 1996. Touring steadily, the band built a sizeable fan base outside their hometown. 1995 saw the band participating in the N.Y.H.C. documentary and extensive interviews were conducted with Freddy as well as a performance on July 28, 1995 at the now-defunct Coney Island High. Along with bands Agnostic Front, Vietnom, Bulldoze, Resistance, H2O and Teamz, they comprise a part of New York’s DMS crew. Cricien and Hoya are also in the band Hazen Street, along with members of H2O and Cro-Mags.
