„This is all you can ask for when it comes to crossover: from melodic singalongs to brutal metal mosh! Young bands should be inspired by For The Cause‘s dynamics, agility and creativity!“

“Even 30 years after the band‘s foundation, ‘Be true to your school’, still is the motto of Freddy Cricienand MADBALL: the world keeps turning, their NYC styled hardcore stays.“
