HATEBREED Frontman Interviewed By Sweden's 'Access: Rock' (Video)
January 15, 2013
Anna Dave Bertram of Sweden's Access: Rock recently conducted an interview with singer Jamey Jasta of Connecticut hardcore/metal masters HATEBREED in Stockholm. You can now watch the chat below.
HATEBREED's "Put It To The Torch" video was directed by Justin Reich (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY). The song comes off the band's latest CD, "The Divinity Of Purpose", which is available for pre-order on iTunes (in the United States and Canada). When fans pre-order the album, they'll also receive an instant download of "Put It To The Torch".
"The Divinity Of Purpose" will be released on January 29 in North America via Razor & Tie and on January 25 in Europe through Nuclear Blast. The CD was co-produced by HATEBREED, Chris "Zeuss" Harris (SUICIDE SILENCE, ALL THAT REMAINS, SHADOWS FALL) and Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, AVENGED SEVENFOLD),with Wilbur also handling mixing duties. The cover artwork was created and illustrated by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, ATHEIST, SIGH, ANACRUSIS, GWAR) and can be seen below.
"The Divinity Of Purpose" track listing:
01. Put It To the Torch 02. Honor Never Dies 03. Own Your World 04. The Language 05. Before The Fight Ends You 06. Indivisible 07. Dead Man Breathing 08. The Divinity Of Purpose 09. Nothing Scars Me 10. Bitter Truth 11. Boundless (Time To Murder It) 12. Idolized And Vilified
Regarding the musical direction of the new HATEBREED material, Jasta told "Maximum Threshold", "We did enough experimenting, I think, on the last record… A lot of people really liked that record and it did gain us a lot of new fans, but on this record, with the 10-year anniversary of [HATEBREED's 2002 album] 'Perseverance' and with Wayne [Lozinak, guitar] being back in the band — this will be his second record with us — it's just fun to kind of keep with the old-school influences. I hear more CRO-MAGS and KILLING TIME and SHEER TERROR and OBITUARY and BOLT THROWER and SLAYER and ENTOMBED and those kind of '80s and '90s influences in there. Which is fun for us, because we emulate the bands that we love. We try to make it our own sound and make it our own style, but at the end of the day, we're just fans of those styles of bands."
"The Divinity Of Purpose" will be supported by extensive global touring that will stretch well into 2014.
