Nuclear Blast artist Hatebreed will release their eighth studio album Weight of The False Self. The 12-track album is stocked with pit-stirring anthems. It arrives on November 27 and is available for pre-order.
The band has shared a new album trailer, in which singer Jamey Jasta and guitarist Wayne Lozinak discuss the process of working with producer Zeuss, and the unique sounds that were captured on the record. You will also learn exactly what “bitch ears” are.
Weight of the False Self arrives on the heels of the sold-out anniversary shows that Hatebreed embarked upon throughout 2019 and the unprecedented success of 2016’s The Concrete Confessional. Not only did the latter tally over 42 million Spotify streams, but the single Looking Down The Barrel of Today also clocked 30 million-plus Spotify streams. Over 20 years deep into its career, this Connecticut hardcore metal institution remains as vital as ever.
Renowned for their ability to provide an intense and cathartic release for their fans, Hatebreed challenged themselves and their writing style in order to produce material that is exceptionally relatable in a contemporary world flooded with overstimulation, emotional dampening, and lack of social patience. Weight Of The False Self is a perfect representation of Hatebreed in 2020, a fresh onslaught of soon-to-be classics with all the elements that led you here since day one,” explains guitarist Frank Novinec.
Drummer Matt Byrne shares, “There’s no shortage of beefy riffs and adrenaline-fueled drums on this record. I’m proud to say that we will consistently provide a soundtrack to which you can mosh in your living room and destroy your apartment.”
Previously, Hatebreed just dropped their first new single in four years with When The Blade Drops, which does not appear on the new album.
