After discussing positive mental attitudes, Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta has released a new track-by-track video discussing upcoming album "The Concrete Confessional" (due out May 13th through Nuclear Blast worldwide. Check out the clip below.
According to Jasta, "'A.D.' was the track from the get, what we knew was strong, it was fast, it was brutal, it had that quality that you want for the opening track on a album."
With the song "Looking Down the Barrel of Today," Jasta explains, "The day is either going to control you or you are going to control it. You're either holding the barrel or you're getting it pointed at you. I thougt it was a great second track just to keep that flow. Really heavy, really fast, right out of the gate."
The album's third song, "Seven Enemies," is a take on the seven deadly sins. "A lot of those things lead to destructive lifestyle patters," Jasta says. "People gravitate toward their vices and sins and it dooms them... and then that starts affecting the people around them It's a short, heavy song, and we know that the pit will erupt when we get it into the set."
With "In The Walls," Jasta channels his personal experiences with night paralysis and night terrors, and the fear that one might be losing one's mind. "It's something different for us, but it's also really a fast, heavy, hardcore track, that reminds me of old-school Hatebreed." More...
On Hatebreed's upcoming album "The Concrete Confessional" (due out May 13th through Nuclear Blast worldwide), the lyrics grapple with a number of the injustices and frustrations that people are experiencing in today's society.
Songs such as "A.D.," "Us Against Us," and "Looking Down the Barrel of Today" speak to these issues.
"Sometimes it's not so easy to have a positive mental attitude," said Hatebreed's lyricist Jamey Jasta, "but at the end of the tunnel, there is light." Hear more of what Jasta has to say about the new album in a brand new video clip below.
Hatebreed just released a clip for "Looking Down The Barrel of Today," the first music video from upcoming album, "The Concrete Confessional," due out May 13th (Nuclear Blast worldwide).
Directed by David Brodsky (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel, All That Remains) the performance piece was shot earlier this month at the band's rehearsal space in Connecticut.
The video opens with the preface "Welcome to Two Minutes and Forty-Seven Seconds with Hatebreed," and includes special text throughout that was written by vocalist Jamey Jasta as a message of keeping a positive mental attitude.
In this new video clip below, Hatebreed vocalist Jamey Jasta talks about the band's writing and demoing process for the songs on upcoming album "The Concrete Confessional," due out May 13th on Nuclear Blast.
Hatebreed - vocalist Jamey Jasta, guitarists Wayne Lozinak and Frank Novinec, bassist Chris Beattie and Matt Byrne on drums - will hit the road to support the new album beginning May 13th in Cleveland, OH and playing 25 cities.
Devildriver will support on all dates, with Devil You Know and Act of Defiance supporting on select dates. A previously posted lyric video for new Hatebreed track "A.D." can also be found at this location. More...
On Hatebreed's upcoming release "The Concrete Confessional" (due out May 13th through Nuclear Blast), a number of tracks provide a pragmatic look at issues that have become front-and-center in today's New Normal, and the track "A.D." is a case in point.
Reflecting what is today a challenging time, it's a song that fuses together frustration with torrential thrashed-out guitars, double bass drums, and Jamey Jasta's immortal growl.
"'A.D.' was a way that I could voice my frustration about the loss of opportunities available to the average guy," said lyricist/vocalist Jasta. "With the government and big business drowning in corruption and greed, the average person is being squeezed, so achieving the American Dream is becoming less and less real."
Check out the "A.D." lyric video below. "We all need to pay closer attention to what our elected leaders are doing," Jasta added. "Start locally, in your own community, make your representatives accountable." More...

Through the history of popular music, many album covers have paid homage to the iconic War World II photograph, "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima." This still features a group of United States Navy men raising a U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi in Iwo Jima. The original, taken by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal in 1945, won the prestigious Pulitzer Prize and even inspired the equally iconic Marine Corps War Memorial monument located at Arlington, Virginia.
Two of the most recognizable cover album homages came out in 1986, barely months apart from each other. One was the sleeve for Savatage's third full-length, "Fight for the Rock" and the other belonged to Status Quo's "In the Army Now."
Savatage Vs. Status Quo
There are many factors that indicate that the conceptual similarities between both artworks were just coincidental. Ripping off each other or the original photo wasn't the point here. First, there was a short time frame between both albums' release dates—Savatage's in June; Satus Quo's in August. Probably, by the time "Fight for the Rock" came out, the cover for "In the Army Now" was already completed and heading into production and promotion. After all, let's remember that albums take a long time to put together from writing, production, to graphic design, marketing to release.
On top of that, the origins of both arts cannot be more different: Heavy metallers, Savatage, ordered their image (featuring the members of the band raising an American flag) apparently as a direct consequence of not including band photos in their previous albums' layouts. Their label (Atlantic) was demanding a portrait so instead of just simply posing like any other band, they opted for re-recreating the famous Iwo Jima still.
In the case of rockers, Status Quo, designer Mark Wilkinson (Judas Priest, Europe) remembers that the cover concept for his hand painted image (featuring fans and a British flag) "was suggested to me by singer/guitarist Rick Parfitt,—to reflect their 'denim army', the fans who followed them."

In today’s episode of The Jasta Show, Jamey Jasta sits down with Randy Blythe from Lamb of God. They discuss the Gwar B-Q, Dave Brockie, Jello Biafra, staying sober, prison, Randy's love of literature, Randy's pcoming book, the wall of Death at Ozzfest, and more.
Randy comments on sobriety and getting sober on tour: "I was writing about drinking in my book, I address it quite a bit. It stopped working the last night I got drunk. It worked when I got to a place where everything that bothered me was shutdown. I drink because I didn’t like many things about myself and many things about the world. I didn’t want to cope with that."
Randy on what he learned from the events in the Czech Republic, and if there was a life lesson: “No there was no fucking lesson just tragedy. A dead fucking kid. Though I caught a bullet. It was bound to happen to someone. The barricade at that show was non-existent. The security is non-existent. If I were to do it again I would have stopped the show.”
