HATEBREED is currently headlining the "10 Years Of Perseverance" tour, a United States headline trek commemorating the 10th anniversary of the band's 2002 major-label debut, "Perseverance". The tour features direct support from WHITECHAPEL and special guests ALL SHALL PERISH and DEEZ NUTS.
HATEBREED recently finished recording its new full-length album for an early 2013 release. The CD was produced by the band with assistance from Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, AVENGED SEVENFOLD) and Chris "Zeuss" Harris (SUICIDE SILENCE, ALL THAT REMAINS, SHADOWS FALL).
Commented HATEBREED guitarist Wayne Lozinak: "It was a great experience working with Zeuss and Josh Wilbur on this one. Every song is heavy, straight and to the point, in keeping with the traditional HATEBREED sound. Can't wait to put some of these songs in the set and start playing them live!"
Added HATEBREED bassist Chris Beattie: "This is the album that HATEBREED fans have been waiting for — catchy, ignorant and full of energy!"
Regarding the musical direction of the new HATEBREED material, vocalist Jamey Jasta told "Maximum Threshold", "We did enough experimenting, I think, on the last record… A lot of people really liked that record and it did gain us a lot of new fans, but on this record, with the 10-year anniversary of [HATEBREED's 2002 album] 'Perseverance' and with Wayne [Lozinak, guitar] being back in the band — this will be his second record with us — it's just fun to kind of keep with the old-school influences. I hear more CRO-MAGS and KILLING TIME and SHEER TERROR and OBITUARY and BOLT THROWER and SLAYER and ENTOMBED and those kind of '80s and '90s influences in there. Which is fun for us, because we emulate the bands that we love. We try to make it our own sound and make it our own style, but at the end of the day, we're just fans of those styles of bands."
After the "Perseverance" tour, HATEBREED will join LAMB OF GOD, IN FLAMES and SYLOSIS on the road this fall from October 30 through November 19.
HATEBREED will headline the Persistence Tour 2013 in Europe in January.
