Latest Hatebreed News
Below is our complete Hatebreed news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Hatebreed's upcoming Canadian tour has been cancelled. The trek was to take place in May and also feature The Warriors, Scars Of Tomorrow, and Despised Icon. The cancellation is apparently due to a "radius clause" in the contract for Hatebreed's late-summer tour with System Of A Down. The Canadian tour will reportedly be rescheduled.
Just For Fun
Hatebreed's "To The Threshold" has been used in one of Verizon's recent online ads entitled "Helevator" promoting their VCAST service.
Verizon has done a great job with the ad. To sum it up, some people get stuck in an elevator and a girl whips out her phone to play a song. One of the choices is Hatebreed's "To The Threshold," which I of course selected given the other lame choices. What ensued was quite entertaining and well done for an ad. You can try it for yourself here (select the "Helevator" clip). How the geeky/wussy guy gets his shirt back on is a mystery to me...
MTV.com reports: Rumors have been swirling for weeks that Hatebreed are now part of the Roadrunner Records kith. But while a deal has yet to be inked, a source said the band's been in continuing negotiations with the label — and is close to signing the proverbial dotted line.
"We ended up doing two records with Universal, and our time at that label was killer," frontman Jamey Jasta explained when asked about the talks. "We sold over 300,000 on [2002's] Perseverance and 200,000 on [2003's] The Rise of Brutality. We got a Grammy nomination. But we feel we need to be at a label that deals with more metal bands and is more involved in the whole grand scheme of metal and hardcore."
Jasta added that Roadrunner's long tradition of fostering acts such as Madball, Biohazard and Sepultura is also appealing. "It [would] just [be] the right home for us," he said.
There's a lot going on in Hatebreed's world these days. They've just finished recording Supremacy, which Jasta calls an "all-out onslaught of completely adrenaline-charged, in-your-face brutality." Due in early August, the album will feature 13 tracks of Hatebreed's "best material yet."
"This album's just more charged, more focused," he added. "There are classic Hatebreed songs on here — ones I can see being in our set for years to come. I really set out when writing these songs with these guys [that] if it didn't make my hair stand up or give me chills down my spine, I didn't use it. I wanted to tap into pure adrenaline — the speed, the brutality, the breakdowns. I wanted to make a crushing record that was going to have a memorable impact on people."
He said Supremacy will include the first single, "To the Threshold," and the second single, "Never Let It Die," which the band is shooting a video for in May. Also expect it to have "Defeatist," "Spitting Venom," "As Diehard as They Come," "Mind Over All" and "The Most Truth."
At the end of April, Hatebreed will head to Australia, where they'll open gigs for Korn. A Canadian run is scheduled to precede the band's mainstage slot on this summer's Ozzfest, as will several European festival bookings. The Connecticut hardcore dudes will also headline a number of club shows this summer — on Ozzfest off-dates — with Strapping Young Lad.

Hatebreed have announced the addition of guitarist Frank "3 Gun" Novinec to their line-up. Novinec, a Cleveland native, has previously played with Terror, Ringworm, and Integrity. According to frontman Jamey Jasta, "We've decided to become a five piece again. Mainly because of the new album having a lot of parts that involve second guitar but also because me and Beattie started this band as a 5 piece and feel like it's an integral part of our sound and vision." Meanwhile, Hatebreed's Sean Martin had the following to say:
"Frank '3 Gun' Novinec has been an influential guitar player in the hardcore scene since the release of 'The Promise,' by Ringworm in 1993. His guitar playing/writing with Ringworm, as well as everything he did with Integrity helped to define the Cleveland sound. That sound had a direct impact on me as a guitar player, and as a fan, it got me through a lot of hard times and helped to define my playing today. I was lucky enough to meet 3 Gun while we were on tour with Motorhead, and playing a show in Cleveland. Since then, He's become one of my best friends, and it will be an honor to be sharing the stage with him."

This past weekend Hatebreed shot a video for the new song "To The Threshold," which will appear on the upcoming Headbangers Ball "The Revenge" 2 Disc CD compilation for Roadrunner Records. The video was directed by Dale Restighini and "tells a story of young kid who uses music to escape the abuse of a man his mother is seeing."
As the anticipation surrounding the release of the LACUNA COIL album, “Karmacode”, continues to build, Century Media has posted a stream of the disc’s stunning first single, “Our Truth,” to tide over the masses until “Karmacode” is released on April 3rd 2006. Go here to listen to it.
Lacuna Coil will officially release the “Our Truth” on March 6th 2006 on Century Media in Europe (UK March 13th 2006). The single will be available in different formats including the track ‘Without A Reason’ which is as exclusive to the single as the “Our Truth” radio-mix and the Jack Dangers remix. The accompanying video for "Our Truth" was directed by Fort Awesome, a brand-new directorial duo whose individual credits include Queens of the Stone Age, Linkin Park, Disturbed, Chevelle and more.

MTV2 and Roadrunner Records have announced the release of the third installment in the successful series – MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL: THE REVENGE. The low priced, double-disc is due in stores on April 11, 2006.
On the heels of the Gold certification of the first installment, MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 1 and the success with MTV2 HEADBANGERS BALL, VOLUME 2, MTV2 and Roadrunner Records once again set out to gather the very best in Hard Rock and Heavy Metal. The result is more than 2 1/2 hours of music on 2 CDs: disc one represents the strongest tracks from today's biggest rock bands, and disc two brings together the strongest up-and-comers from the underground rock scene.
In addition to the genre-defining anthems that represent the best of the show, there are enough rare and unreleased tracks to satisfy tastemaker metal fans as well. Packed with a total of 38 hard-charging tracks, this collection has 7 exclusive offerings. They include the Terry Date mix of Slipknot's "Before I Forget", and the live recording of Killswitch Engage's "A Bid Farewell", which both see their first CD release on this compilation. Other exclusives are brand new tracks from Hatebreed and Walls Of Jericho, both of which were written especially for this release (Hatebreed's lead vocalist, Jamey Jasta, is the host of the Headbangers Ball program on MTV2). A video for the Hatebreed track, entitled "To The Threshold", will air on video channels in March. A side project of Jasta's, Kingdom of Sorrow (which also includes members of Down, Crowbar and Seemless), also throws a brand new track into the ring. The compilation beat Dragonforce and 36 Crazyfists' record releases to the punch with fresh new tracks from these up-and-comers.

KINGDOM OF SORROW, the new project featuring HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta and CROWBAR guitarist/vocalist Kirk Windstein, will resume recording their debut album this weekend at Planet Z studios in Massachusetts with producer Zeuss (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL). 13 tracks plus a cover of MOTÖRHEAD's "No Class" are being recorded for the effort, which is tentatively due in early 2006 through an as-yet-undisclosed label. A short audio preview of the upcoming CD is available at the band's newly launched official web site.
Jasta had previously stated about the KINGDOM OF SORROW debut, "This is seriously going to blow people's minds! Steve Gibb from CROWBAR (formerly of BLACK LABEL SOCIETY) [flew] up from Miami to rip some solos and leads on a few tracks. We are also going to have two INSANE guest appearances that will definitely shock and excite people. . . Kirk is singing with me as well as playing the bass and guitar on the album, and we have both been writing and bringing ideas to the table. It's been killer!"
