HATEBREED have announced that they have inked a deal to not just one but two labels.
In Europe, the band’s follow-up to their 2009 self-titled album will be handled by Nuclear Blast Records, while North America will be handled by Razor & Tie. The new record is supposed to be released in January of next year.
Commented HATEBREED singer Jamey Jasta:
We’re really excited to be working with such great people at both Razor & Tie and Nuclear Blast. 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.
Pete Giberga, VP of A&R, and John Franck, SVP of Marketing for Razor & Tie, also comments:
Hatebreed’s anthems coupled with their do-or-die work ethic continues to make them a dominant force in hardcore and metal today. 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.
And last but not least, a comment from Nuclear Blast A&R representative Jaap Wagemaker:
In the past, we had seen Hatebreed play several times live when they were headlining indoor hardcore festivals or when they played one of the many shows at Graspop in Belgium. The band that defined metal/hardcore with their releases “Perseverance” and “The Rise of Brutality” will be releasing another milestone in their career by the beginning of 2013!!
After seeing Hatebreed turning this year’s Hellfest upside down in front of 30,000 hardcore and metal fans and doing the same a couple of months later at Bloodstock in the U.K., it became very clear that Hatebreed and Nuclear Blast would be the perfect match. Something that became even stronger after we had the chance to listen to a couple of new songs!
We are very proud to welcome Hatebreed to the ever-growing Nuclearfamily!! In 2013 their new album will be out and I can tell you that the fans who have been waiting for this for a couple of years now won’t be disappointed!! Hatebreed is back, stronger than ever!!
