Hatebreed to release new album through E1
Our news posting yesterday regarding a worldwide deal with Roadrunner was slightly misleading. Roadrunner will NOT be handling the North American release. Sorry for the confusion. Official press release: Metal-hardcore juggernauts Hatebreed have re-entered the studio to begin work on its long awaited new studio album which is slated for a fall 2009 release. Hatebreed's follow up to 2006's "Supremacy" will be released on E1 Music (formerly Koch) in North America and Roadrunner Records in all other territories. The new album will be self-titled and is shaping up to be one of the band's most ferocious albums ever. Frontman Jamey Jasta comments, "I can't wait to work with E1 Music and Roadrunner International on this release -- E1 did a great job with our Live Dominance DVD and our recent covers album. We're so pumped to give them both our new studio album!" The announcement of the band's new album is also part of E1's continuing expanding relationship with the group after its initial first two releases together, including the #1 charting Billboard DVD "Live Dominance" and the recently released covers album, "For The Lions." Scott Givens, E1 Music's VP of Metal says, "E1 Entertainment is proud to be the home of Hatebreed in North America. I speak for everyone here when I say we are 100% committed to putting every resource we have behind the new record. Jamey Jasta is part of our E1 family and we are looking forward to continuing to work with him on all of his endeavors both now and in the future." Wally van Middendorp, with Roadrunner International, adds, "After having released their last two studio albums on Roadrunner internationally, it is an honor to work again with Hatebreed, a band that is on top of its musical league." 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 singer Jamey Jasta. 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."
