Hatebreed - The Concrete ConfessionalThe Concrete Confessional, Hatebreed’s seventh full-length recording and one of Rolling Stone‘s “25 Most Anticipated Metal Albums for 2016,” has debuted at #13 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart.  The Grammy-nominated band also sees the album making its first-week bow at #2 on the Hard Rock Albums and Current Hard Rock Albums charts, and #3 on the Top Independent Albums chart.

In addition, due to what can only be considered as enlightened precognition, Hatebreed graces the cover of the just-published (June/July) issue of Revolver magazine.  In the “Reservoir Dogs”-themed cover and feature, the hardcore heroes discuss anxiety, death, the American dream, and other provocative topics on The Concrete Confessional.

Hatebreed – vocalist Jamey Jasta, guitarists Wayne Lozinak and Frank Novinec, bassist Chris Beattle, and Matt Byrne on drums – is currently in the midst of a 25-date North American tour in support of the new album, which will be followed by the project’s second run through Europe.  Dates are below.
