Hardcore juggernauts HATEBREED are set to release their ferocious self-titled new album on 5th October 2009 through Roadrunner Records.
The release, their follow up to 2006’s ‘Supremacy’ and recent covers album, ‘For The Lions’, will be available as a CD, digital download and special edition with a bonus 65-minute DVD.
Frontman Jamey Jasta comments, "This is our fifth studio album and it's a monster! We've survived some pretty rough times and the music shows it. There was no reason to change the recipe that our fans know and love, but we added a few brutal new ingredients and we're more than amped on the results. Violence is a given!”
Jasta elaborates, “I feel this new album is a true crossover record in the sense that our metal and hardcore roots are evenly represented throughout it. There's still the fast East Coast tuned down Hardcore that people know and love, yet there are metal influences that shine through on almost every song. The speed is there, which we even kicked up a few notches on some of the songs, but the groove and slower tempos are represented. On Hatebreed, there is a violent mix of straight forward anthem headbangers, fast thrashers and brutal breakdown after breakdown. There's something for everyone."
The new album was again produced by Zeuss and will feature the return of original guitar player Wayne Lozinak (who recently replaced departing guitarist, Sean Martin) alongside core members Chris Beattie (bass), Matt Byrne (drums), Frank Novinec (guitar) and frontman Jamey Jasta.
