Hatebreed Announces Second Leg Of Anniversary Tour With Obituary, Madball And More

Hatebreed remain one of the most relevant and impactful acts in the hard rock and metal scenes. The Connecticut band will celebrate 25 years of ruthless breakdowns, pit-stirring anthems, and poignant lyrics across eight albums and consistently sold-out shows in 2019.

The band, which has gone from playing basements and backyards to being a featured worldwide attraction on countless festivals and high-profile tours from OZZFest to Warped Tour to Download, will commemorate two-plus decades by embarking on a 25th anniversary tour.

The second leg of dates has just been announced and will hit the midwest and West Coast in May. The second leg will feature support from Obituary, Madball, Prong, and Skeletal Remains from May 7th through May 15th. Agnostic Front will replace Madball on the dates that run from May 17th through May 26th. Tickets for the second leg go on sale on Friday, February 15th at 10 AM, local time. VIP upgrades for select dates go on sale on February 25th.

The first leg of the tour kicks off on April 4th in Philadelphia and runs through April 20th in the band’s home state. It will feature support from Obituary and Cro-Mags, two bands that Hatebreed have covered in their career and who have influenced the signature and instantly recognizable Hatebreed sound. Terror and Fit for an Autopsy will round out this “can’t miss” juggernaut of a lineup.

“I can’t believe it’s been 25 years already,” said Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta. “We’re excited to bring out this massive tour package with some of our favorite bands. Every band on this bill is a headliner in their own right. The show will be run festival-style with bands you don’t want to miss playing early. Activate the pit!”

“There’s something special about being able to take out bands who influenced your own band,” said guitarist Frank Novinec. “This is the kind of stuff you dream about as a kid. We are truly honored to bring this package to everyone as part of our 25-year anniversary.”

Life Of Agony Reveals New Album “The Sound Of Scars” Details

Brooklyn, NY’s Life Of Agony is currently tracking their highly anticipated sixth studio album The Sound Of Scars with esteemed producer Sylvia Massy (Tool, System Of A Down) at her recording studio Studio Divine in Ashland, Oregon. Additional recording will take place at various studios in New York. Sylvia Massy will also handle mixing duties for the album. “The Sound of Scars” is expected to drop this fall from Napalm Records.

“Sylvia has a deep understanding of what this band is all about and we’ve wanted to work with her for a very, very long time,” says bassist Alan Robert. “Especially, since this is a concept album continuing the story of River Runs Red, we’re extremely grateful to have her on board to help capture the darkness, raw emotion and heaviness of the new material.

“Life of Agony began boldly over 25 years ago with its hard musical discourse into the human condition, a darkly hued story which continues to evolve today,” explains Sylvia Massy. “This is a unique band with a remarkable history of personal discovery – a phoenix tale of flight, fire and resurrection. This month we begin again to record the latest chapter. I am excited to be the witness to the creation of the new Life of Agony album!”

The Sound of Scars marks the first Life Of Agony album with new drummer Veronica Bellino, who joined the group last January and performed all-year long on LOA’s highly successful “Rise of the Underground” tour. Bellino is best known for her work with Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Jeff Beck, DMC, Richie Sambora/Orianthi, and Carmine Appice/Slamm.

Besides work on the album, Life Of Agony has already announced a handful of dates for 2019, including a co-headlining show with Overkill on Friday, May 10th at PlayStation Theater in New York City, Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany on August 2nd, and Rhein Riot Festival in Cologne, Germany with Body Count on August 3rd.

Fit For An Autopsy Premieres New Live Video “Black Mammoth” & Releases Deluxe Edition Of “The Great Collapse”

Fit For An Autopsy released a deluxe edition of its latest album, “The Great Collapse” yesterday, October 27th. This ‘The Rain City Deluxe Version‘ version of the effort comes with a bonus set which they tracked live at Rain City Recorders in Vancouver, BC. A live video from that set for “Black Mammoth” can be seen below.

Says the band of it:

“As kids, we always loved the bootleg live recordings and bonus live tracks on metal records, and it seems like bands aren’t releasing live material as much today in the metal world. Everyone has a slick and modern production, so we thought it’d be challenging and fun to showcase a more raw live performance on record. Rain City did a killer job capturing the band, and Will Putney’s live mix did it justice. Hope you enjoy it!”

Bonus tracks included on the album include:

10 – “Hydra” (live at Rain City)
11 – “Heads Will Hang” (live at Rain City)
12 – “Iron Moon” (live at Rain City)
13 – “Black Mammoth” (live at Rain City)
14 – “Do You See Him” (live at Rain City)
15 – “The Jackal” (live at Rain City)
16 – “Saltwound” (live at Rain City)
17 – “Absolute Hope Absolute Hell” (live at Rain City)
18 – “Flatlining” (live at Rain City)
