It’s a little strange to think that Hatebreed have been around for over 20 years, but last year was the 20th anniversary of their founding. But throughout the course of their eight-album career, they’ve been on almost as many labels, among them Victory, Universal, eOne, Roadrunner and Razor and Tie. Now they’ve got a new label, as Nuclear Blast, who previously represented them in Europe, have signed them for the rest of the world. Zeuss, who’s worked with the band since 2003’s The Rise of Brutality, will again produce the band’s ninth album, which the band is currently in the studio working on. Josh Wilbur, who mixed 2013’s The Divinity of Purpose, will mix the forthcoming album as well. Here’s what frontman Jamey Jasta says about the album:
“Hatebreed signing to Nuclear Blast worldwide could not come at a better time and we’re extremely excited to get this new album out and commence the world tour in 2016 and 2017! Our diehards have been patiently waiting for headline dates and new songs, we can’t wait for everyone to hear what we have been working on!”
The album will apparently be out in the Spring.
