Hatebreed front man Jamey Jasta will re-issue his latest solo album, The Lost Chapters Vol. 2 on vinyl next summer.

The announcement was made Thursday in a news release. The document states the vinyl re-issue is expected for release in July, with an exact release date under consideration.

In anticipation of the re-issue, Jasta premiered the lyric video for the album’s latest single, ‘They Want Your Soul’ Thursday. ‘They Want Your Soul’ features a guest appearance by Cannibal Corpse front man George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher.

Jasta talked about Fisher’s appearance on the track during a recent interview with Apple Music.

“I’m doing this melodic sort of metal chorus on this song, so I wanted to get the dynamic of the most brutal vocal in the verses,” said Jasta. “I reached out to George and he hit me right back. When he sent me the tracks, I was freaking out. I felt like a kid; when I booked my first Cannibal Corpse show with George in the band, it was the first tour that he did with them. His voice is just so brutal and has held up – if not gotten better – throughout the years. I was so psyched that he wanted to do it.”

The musical arrangement featured in ‘They Want Your Soul’ incorporates Jasta’s own influences from his work with Hatebreed alongside more melodic metal influences for a composition that is unique from the rest of the album’s entries. The addition of Fisher to the mix adds even more to that unique presentation.

No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the lyric video’s debut. Considering the lyrics provided, it would seem that the song’s lyrical theme centers on the people who would work to tear others down. That would explain the use of footage from the original 1968 take of Night of the Living Dead. Those people are much like zombies who just feast on others, albeit metaphorically in this case as opposed to the literal version in the movie.

The Lost Chapters Vol. 2 was originally released in 2019. The album is available to stream and download here. The album’s track listing is noted below.

Dee Snider Unveils New Album’s Latest Single, Video; Announces New Streaming, Signing Events

Dee Snider debuted the latest single from his new album and its video this week.

Snider premiered his new single, ‘Down But Never Out’ and its video Friday. The song is the third single from Snider’s brand new album, Leave a Scar. Its premiere follows that of the album’s first two singles, ‘I Gotta Rock (Again)‘ and ‘Time To Choose.’ ‘Time To Choose’ features a guest appearance by Cannibal Corpse front man George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher.

The musical arrangement featred in ‘Down But Never Out’ immediately lends itself to comparison to the best works of Judas Priest and at the same time, some of today’s top new hard rock acts.  That all around heaviness can likely be credited at least in part to Snider working with Hatebreed front man Jamey Jasta on this record.  As a matter of fact, a close listen to the shouts in the chorus and the heavy “chunk” of the guitars at points does in fact point to Hatebreed as one of those noted current hard rock bands for comparison.  The intensity in the song’s arrangement works well to help translate the emotion in the song’s lyrical content.

The lyrical content presented in ‘Down But Not Out’ is a proudly defiant statement about perseverance, which again is a central theme to most of Hatebreed’s songs.

Snider talked about the song’s lyrical theme during a recent interview.

“I pride myself on the fact that throughout the decades, my music has always tried to not only push back against all oppressors (in this case Covid-19), but also lift people up and encourage them to fight back,” he said. “‘Down But Never Out’ is a perfect example of this ethos.”

The video for ‘Down But Not Out’ tells the story of a man who clearly is down on his luck. He has past due bills, his woman has thrown him out, and so he ends up trying his luck at the lottery. The result is left to wonder about, as it ends “To Be Continued.” Added to the mix is footage of Snider and his band mates performing live.

In other news, Snider recently announced a streaming event for audiences. Tickets for the event are available here. Tickets provide access to the event and related content for approximately one month. That extra content includes a streaming concert that Snider recorded June 12 in New York.

Additionally, Snider announced Friday, that he will take part in a special in-store signing event at 7 p.m. ET Aug. 17 at Looney Tunes Record Store in West Babylon. Tickets for the event are available here.
