I Scream Records has announced the signing of New York hardcore legends MADBALL for the European territory.

Label owner Laurens Kusters said of the signing: "Over the last few years, we've worked very close with MADBALL on releases such as the 'Resistance Tour DVD Volume 2' and the 'Worldwide Tribute to the Real Oi Compilation'. To be able to work this highly anticipated new full-length, due for release in September 2007, is icing on the cake in this 13th year of business for the label."

I Scream Records, which opened an Los Angeles office in late 2005, is one of the leading European hardcore/punk labels.

MADBALL recently shot a video for the song "100%" in São Paulo, Brazil with director Pablo Menna (Toro Productions). Check out the clip at

MADBALL released its first CD in North America for Ferret Music, "Legacy", in August 2005. An appearance at the European version of the Sounds of the Underground tour followed last spring, alongside CHIMAIRA, UNEARTH, TERROR, ALL THAT REMAINS and MANNTIS.
