Hatebreed has a new album on the way.

The Connecticut-based hardcore band announced today that it will release its latest album this summer.  The album, The Concrete Confessional, will be released Friday, May 13th worldwide via Nuclear Blast Records.  The album is the band’s first since 2013’s The Divinity of Purpose and the band’s seventh overall full-length studio recording.  This is not counting the band’s 2009 covers album For The Lions.  The album is available for pre-order online now here.  In a number of special limited edition bundle packs that include: vinyl copies of The Concrete Confessional, t-shirts, posters, a Prayer candle, skull and mace journal, digital download of the new album, and much more.

Hatebreed recorded its new album in Connecticut.  Longtime friend and producer Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Suicide Silence, Whitechapel) manned the boards once again for this album.  Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Megadeth) handled mixing duties.  The band’s sound on its upcoming album is just as heavy as its previous offerings.  And its lyrical themes are just as polarizing with topics ranging from police brutality to the seeming slow death of the American dream, the rise of terrorism around the globe, and much more.  Fans and audiences alike can get an early taste of The Concrete Confessional now thanks to a trailer featuring three of the album’s featured songs—‘Looking Down The Barrel of Today,’ ‘A.D.,’ and ‘The Apex Within’—here.
