Madball Part Ways With Drummer Jay Weinberg, Stream New Track Online


Madball have parted ways with drummer Jay Weinberg. Speaking on the split, band frontman Freddy Cricien offered the following:

“I’m letting Jay go in Canada because I just feel he doesn’t represent this band well on a character level. It would go against my own code of ethics to keep him around. Not saying he’s a bad drummer.

I won’t take that away from him. But the reality is – he has a lot to learn about paying dues, and about life in general. Granted, he is a kid, but I’m not sure that he’ll ever be built for this particular lifestyle. I wish him the best of luck, but the MADBALL machine rolls on!”

The band still plan to finish out their ongoing Canadian tour with an as-yet unannounced replacement drummer. In other news, the band have made the title track to their new album “Empire” available for streaming online via Stereokiller. “Empire” will see an October 12th release date.
