Razor & Tie have been on a signing tear lately. The Sword and Shadows Fall were notable pickups, and P.O.D. seems to have paid off as well. Now the label can add Hatebreed to that list. It was announced earlier today that the band have signed to R&T for North America, and Nuclear Blast in Europe and some additional international territories. The band’s sixth album, which was co-produced by the band along with Zeuss and Josh Wilbur, will be released in January of 2013.
“We’re really excited to be working with such great people at both Razor & Tie & Nuclear Blast,” frontman Jamey Jasta said in a statement. “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.”
“Hatebreed’s anthems coupled with their do-or-die work ethic continues to make them a dominant force in hardcore and metal today, Razor & Tie VP of A&R Pete Gilberga and SVP of Marketing John Franck commented. “Their inclusionary message and deep relationship with their fan-base also makes them a band that is built for these times. With the group playing some of the best shows of its career, their renewed sense of purpose has never sounded more steadfast and resolute than it does on this forthcoming new record.”
The album is apparently still untitled, but it won’t be self-titled, since their last non-cover studio album was, and the only person that can get away with that is Peter Gabriel.
