NUCLEAR BLAST has issued as follows:
Nuclear Blast is proud to announce the signing of US hardcore metal kings, HATEBREED, who have just inked a record deal including all European territories. North America and Canada will be handled by Razor & Tie.
The forthcoming album was co-produced by Hatebreed, Zeuss (SUICIDE SILENCE, ALL THAT REMAINS, SHADOWS FALL) and Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, AVENGED SEVENFOLD). Wilbur also handled mixing duties on the new record. The new studio album will be supported by extensive global touring that will stretch well into 2014.
Commented singer Jamey Jasta, “We’re really excited to be working with such great people at both Razor & Tie & Nuclear Blast. We’ve made an awesome album and we’re chomping at the bit to get it out and hit the road. Global domination begins now.”
Nuclear Blast A&R Jaap Wagemaker adds: „In the past we had seen HATEBREED play several times live when they were headlining indoor hardcore festivals or when they played one of the many shows at Graspop in Belgium! The band that defined metal / hardcore with their releases „Perseverance“ and „The Rise of Brutality“ will be releasing another milestone in their career by the beginning of 2013!! After seeing HATEBREED turning this years Hellfest upside down infront of 30,000 hardcore and metalfans and doing the same a couple of months later at Bloodstock in the UK it became very clear that HATEBREED and Nuclear Blast would be the perfect match. Something that became even stronger after we had the chance to listen to a couple of new songs! We are very proud to welcome HATEBREED to the evergrowing Nuclear family!! In 2013 their new album will be out and I can tell you that the fans who have been waiting for this for a couple of years now won’t be disappointed!! HATEBREED is back, stronger than ever!!“
The sixth HATEBREED studio record is set to be released in January 2013.
HATEBREED will also hit the road headlining the notorious PERSISTENCE TOUR which marks the first live run for the upcoming album.
