Metal-hardcore juggernauts HATEBREED have re-entered the studio to begin work on their long-awaited new studio album which is slated for a late Autumn 2009 release.
HATEBREED’s follow-up to 2006’s ‘Supremacy’ will be released by Roadrunner Records in all territories, ex-North America. The new album, simply titled ‘Hatebreed,’ is shaping up to be one of the band’s most ferocious albums yet.
Frontman Jamey Jasta comments, “I can’t wait to work with Roadrunner International and E1 Music (in North America) on this release. We’re so pumped to give them both our new studio album!”
The new album will be once again produced by Zeuss and will feature the return of original guitar player, Wayne Lozinak (who recently replaced departed guitarist Sean Martin,) alongside core members Chris Beattie (bass), Matt Byrne (drums), Frank “3 Gun” Novinec (guitar) and Jamey Jasta (vocals).
Jasta continues, “The record is mean as hell! Fans of American metal and East Coast hardcore will be very pleased, and maybe even somewhat surprised.”
The band is currently taking a breather from the studio and touring Europe, then South America for a series of high-profile festival appearances and headline shows – which included the UK’s Download Festival last weekend – before returning to the US to headline their own ‘DECIMATION OF THE NATION’ tour which begins late July and runs through September.
