On HATEBREED‘s upcoming release “The Concrete Confessional” 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 everyday person is being squeezed, so achieving the American Dream is becoming less and less real.”
Check out the ‘A.D.’ lyric video here:
“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.”
‘A.D.’ is now available as an instant-grat track when »The Concrete Confessional« is pre-ordered on iTunes. Go to http://nblast.de/HatebreedTCCIT
The album will be available on May 13 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The long awaited follow-up to “The Divinity Of Purpose” was produced by longtime collaborator Zeuss (ROB ZOMBIE, SUICIDE SILENCE, WHITECHAPEL) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, MEGADETH). Artwork was created by Marcelo Vasco (SLAYER).
The new music is crushing and heavy with provocative lyrics that touch upon a number of topics that have become front-and-center in today’s New Normal: the rise of terrorism, police brutality, moral decay, greed and betrayal, increased divisiveness, and the fading promise of the American Dream, potently covered on the track ‘A.D.’.
