Jamey Jasta, the voice of HATEBREED, ICEPICK and KINGDOM OF SORROW, will headline the Monster Energy sponsored showcase at RED 7 (outdoor patio stage) on Saturday, March 15th at 4:30pm.

"So far I've only done a few solo shows” Jasta explains, “but they've been killer and the crowds have been great. It's just a fun way for me to play small clubs and bars and perform songs from all 3 bands that I’m in, as well as cover some of my favorite metal and hardcore tracks.”

Jamey Jasta and the rest of the guys in HATEBREED have taken a few months off to work on personal projects but will rejoin forces to prepare and film their highly anticipated, first ever released LIVE DVD in the band’s history by documenting their sold out show in Detroit, IL at Harpos on March 29th. In true Jasta form, he has still maintained a break neck schedule by just releasing the long awaited labor of love, KINGDOM OF SORROW (Relapse Records) self titled debut with close friend Kirk Windstein (Down/Crowbar) which entered the Billboard’s New Artist chart at #2. If Jamey’s schedule isn’t busy enough, he has recently been spending extra hours in his home recording studio working on his solo project. “I am in such a great space creatively, these days”, proclaimed Jasta, “I have been writing profusely on my solo material. I don’t have a release date in mind for this project, but my studio work is certainly sharpening my vocal and writing skills for the next HATEBREED studio album which is going to be completely next level!”

Jamey Jasta’s backing band for his solo SXSW performance will be held down by Connecticut’s own underground hardcore veterans, PHANTOMS, who will also be playing a set of their own early in the day. “These guys are insane, just a raw vicious ball of energy,” Jasta said of having Phantoms, “they are a killer band that will make this performance a special one!”
