Mark Hunter recently revealed to us that Chimaira was ready to enter the studio this coming February to record a new album. So it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Chimaira premiered a new song during their annual Christmas show last Saturday night (December 29) in Cleveland, OH.

Also not surprising is that fan filmed footage of Chimaira performing the new song, titled “I Despise,” has already made its way online. The video’s audio quality is pretty decent and gives us a good taste of what to expect from the group’s follow up to The Age Of Hell, and first album with its new lineup and following numerous setbacks. Coincidentally, Chimaira also posted a teaser trailer for the as-yet-untitled album (tentatively due out in summer 2013 via eOne Music) just a few hours before the Christmas show.

Watch Chimaira perform “I Despise” above, as well as the teaser trailer for the new album after the jump.
