Grammy-nominated hardcore legends HATEBREED are hitting the road in support of their new album The Concrete Confessional, due out May 13 (Nuclear Blast), and will play The Glass House in Pomona on Saturday, May 21, and L.A.’s Echoplex on Sunday, May 22. There is a good – and especially with the upcoming election – a timely story with the band and new album, and we’d love to talk with you about coverage. Hit us back and we’ll get you the new music, full background info and go from there.
Set against a foundation of powerful and aggressive music, the new album voices the anger, rage and frustration so many people feel with our societal decline, so painfully evident in today’s “New Normal” – government and big business corruption, the rise of terrorism, police brutality, moral decay, increased divisiveness, and the fading promise of achieving The American Dream, potently covered in the track “A.D.”
“‘A.D.’ was a way that I could voice my frustration about the loss of opportunities available to the average person,” said lyricist/vocalist Jamey Jasta. “With the government and big business drowning in corruption and greed, the everyday person is being squeezed, so achieving the American Dream is becoming less and less real. We all need to pay closer attention to what our elected leaders are doing.”
