Things have been busy for Jamey Jasta, with his podcast, management and A&R, and Hatebreed being out on the road just recently with Slipknot. Things will only get busier for Jasta as a summer of touring will be followed up by writing their seventh studio album.
Said Jasta in an interview with Loudwire:
“We are going to start writing in October. That’s kinda of the game plan. We were going to try it sooner then we got offered this Slipknot arena tour, and then we got offered festivals in July in Europe, and some festivals in the states and Canada in June. It’s like as soon as you are ready to get out they are ready to pull you back in. It is a good problem to have. It’s like here is still demand in the live setting, so that is cool. In September we are headed back to the U.K. So, it is going to have to be the last of September early October when we get back into writing mode.
A new studio album would be their first since 2013’s The Divinity of Purpose. Before that, though, Hatebreed will be playing a, “big 20th anniversary home state, hometown show in New Haven, Connecticut” on June 19th, and Motörhead’s Motörboat in September.
