Lionheart drop single ft Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta, announce new album
Hardcore heavyweights Lionheart are back with a new single, "'Death Comes In 3's", featuring Jamey Jasta of Hatebreed.
The single comes from a new album titled Welcome to The West Coast III, set for release on December 9 via Arising Empire.
The record was produced by Jamey Jasta, mixed and mastered by Will Putney, with photography/artwork done by renowned California street photographer Angel Macias.
Official press release:
Welcome to The West Coast III is 11 tracks of crushing riffs and violence-inciting grooves, and it boasts a star-studded feature line-up, including Ice-T (Body Count), Alex Taylor (Malevolence), and more joining frontman Rob Watson for a maximum vocal assault.
The Bay Area band first stormed into the scene in 2007 with the debut album The Will To Survive. Taking influence from bands like Blood for Blood, Hatebreed, and Madball, Lionheart came out swinging with a full-blown assault of blistering metallic hardcore. They quickly followed it up with 2010's Built On Struggle, 2012's Undisputed, and years of nonstop touring.
The band came back stronger than ever with 2014's Welcome to The West Coast. The album debuted at #1 on both iTunes Metal and GooglePlay Metal Charts. Lionheart stormed into the scene again in January 2016 with Love Don't Live Here. The album title — a nod to a classic R&B/ Motown Song by the same name — shows the band's unwillingness to conform to the typical "hardcore mold." November 2017 saw Lionheart unleash Welcome to The West Coast II. A sequel to Welcome to The West Coast (2014), the album brought forth a new era in California Hardcore, and saw them again debut at #1 across the iTunes Metal Charts and Google Play Metal Charts. Lionheart returned in 2019 with their most punishing album Valley of Death.
