May 23, 2011
"The Fearless Must Endure", a brand new solo track by Jamey Jasta of HATEBREED and KINGDOM OF SORROW, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. The song, which features a guest appearance by Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE),comes off Jasta's solo album, simply titled "Jasta", which is scheduled for release on July 26 via eOne Music. The CD will be made available in Europe one day earlier through Century Media Records.
Jasta and Wylde recently filmed a video for "The Fearless Must Endure". Check out photos from the video shoot at this location.
During a recent interview with Metal Assault, Jamey stated about his upcoming solo album, "It's just more of the thrash and rock element in it. I think there's a lot more clean singing than I'm used to doing. It's a lot of stuff that I recorded for other artists, but it ended up sounding cool so I just left it in there. My engineer was really liking the stuff that I was doing. I still have a lot of guest parts on there Randy Blythe from LAMB OF GOD, Zakk Wylde, Phil Labonte [of ALL THAT REMAINS], Tim from AS I LAY DYING, Mark Morton from LAMB OF GOD so it's just like a fun project before we do the next HATEBREED album."
"I did all of it by myself, except for the guest parts. I did it all throughout 2008, 2009 and 2010 so it was fun to go back, listen to those old tracks and go, 'These are still good, let's release them!' I'm just very lucky that I'm in a position to be able to do this and I'm grateful that the eOne label is giving it such a great push."
When asked if the release of his solo album will impact songwriting for the next HATEBREED CD, Jamey replied, "No, not at all. Actually that's why I wanted to get it out now because the next HATEBREED album is going to be short, to the point and brutal, and there will be no melody. This is my one chance to kind of get it out of the system."
Regarding whether he plans to tour behind the solo material, Jamey said, "I don't see myself doing a lot of touring for this at all. I'd like to, but I really want to focus on getting HATEBREED out for the rest of the year. We'll be going to South America, Australia, then we'll do Europe and the States again so it's going to be a lot of touring. Plus the only time to see KINGDOM OF SORROW is this summer on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. That is the only time you'll see me and Kirk [Windstein, KINGDOM OF SORROW guitarist] together because DOWN is going to be busy, CROWBAR will be busy, and HATEBREED too. So this is it."
