Hatebreed To Release New Album “Weight Of The False Self” In November, Premiere Lyric Video For The Title Track

Hatebreed have announced that they will be releasing their new album “Weight Of The False Self” on November 27. You can find a lyric video for the effort’s title track below:

“Weight Of The False Self” Track Listing:

01. “Instinctive (Slaughterlust)”
02. “Let Them All Rot”
03. “Set It Right (Start With Yourself)”
04. “Weight Of The False Self”
05. “Cling To Life”
06. “A Stroke Of Red”
07. “Dig Your Way Out”
08. “This I Earned”
09. “Wings Of The Vulture”
10. “The Herd Will Scatter”
11. ‘From Gold To Gray”
12. “Invoking Dominance”

Frontman Jamey Jasta said the following about the new record:

“When writing lyrics and riffs, I try to be in the moment, getting a mental picture of my current reality in order to convey what I want to say. Sometimes, I think my reality consists of two irreducible elements, expressed by the age-old interior battle of the dualistic self. The angel on one shoulder stands firm, providing reason, wisdom, and compassion while the devil dances angrily on the other, ranting with passion, spite, and dark desire.

I often wonder if a truly centered mind is attainable, an effortless and non-dualistic state of equilibrium. Until then, I’ll just listen to both sides of my personality and hope I make the right choice. At the end of the day, the listener will choose to hear what they want, but when I am writing, I imagine the voice of the angel to be a lil’ louder.”

Guitarist Frank Novinec continued:

“‘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.”

Drummer Matt Byrne added:

“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.”

Hatebreed Team Up With Witchdoctor Brewing Company For “Live For This” Lager

Hatebreed have partnered with Witchdoctor Brewing Company to create “Live For This” lager under their new Breedbrew brand. The band will be celebrating the release with some socially distanced events. The first one will take place in Southington, Connecticut on August 23 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET and it will feature beer tasting, giveaways, socially distanced photo ops, etc.

Bassist Chris Beattie commented

“During a time of uncertainty for many, we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to partner up and work ‘hands on’ with Witchdoctor Brewing Company in Southington, Connecticut to bring you ‘Live For This’ lager. Teaming up with Witchdoctor’s award-winning master brewer Robert Todd, we were able to deliver a smooth-tasting, crisp version of his Munich Helles-style lager using the finest German ingredients. We wanted to make a beer that appealed to the casual drinker, as well as those who prefer the more hoppy IPA styles. Whatever your preference, I’m sure you’ll enjoy! Stay safe, drink responsibly!”

Drummer Matt Byrne added:

“We have collaborated with Witchdoctor Brewing in Southington, Connecticut to create ‘Live For This’ lager. If you’re not familiar with this Helles style of German beer, think gold-colored, relatively low ABV (4.5%) that won’t blow your head off after one pint. It’s refreshing in this blistering, Northeast summer heat and you can drink this style of beer all day long. If you’re a Budweiser guy, don’t be scared. It’s just as crisp and you will be hooked. If you’re an IPA guy, you will be pleasantly surprised. It has just enough bite. I’ve been lucky to sip beer from all corners of this crazy earth. Helles is one of my all-time favorites. The first sip is the best sip. Nothing compares. The goal of Hatebreed’s ‘Breedbrew’ is to bring a taste of what we have come to enjoy from our German family, home to YOU, our Connecticut heavy metal/hardcore family.”

“Regretfully HATEBREED is going to cancel all of their shows in May. As of now its unclear how many venues will actually be allowed to stay open and in some instances some are already planning to be closed. Beyond the reality that there won’t be enough shows to hold together a tour, we are most concerned about everyone’s health and safety. Canceling is the responsible thing to do in the interest of everyone staying well so we can all look ahead to having shows together in the future. Tickets are refundable at point of purchase.”
