Hatebreed Debuts ‘When The Blade Drops’; Announces New Live Dates

Courtesy: Nuclear Blast Records

Hatebreed returned this week with its first new music in four years.

The band debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘When the Blade Drops‘ Friday.  The song’s musical arrangement is everything that fans of the veteran metalcore band has come to expect from the band.  The song’s lyrical content is certain to engage audiences just as much as its lyrical content.

Front man Jamey Jasta was upbeat when he talked about the song in a recent interview.

“This is just a taste of what’s to come and we’re definitely going hard on this one,” he said.  “The speed, intensity and brutality that people have come to expect from us is on full display.  Can’t wait to play this one live and see the pit erupt.”

‘When The Blade Drops’ is a standalone single.  It will not be included the band’s forthcoming, as yet untitled album.  The album is expected for release later this year.  A release date, title and more information on the album will be released when it becomes available.

While audiences await the release of Hatebreed’s new album, the band’s European fans will get to enjoy the band’s live show this spring and summer beginning April 2 in Leipzig, Germany.  The tour, which will find Hatebreed supporting Parkway Drive, is scheduled to run through April 18 in London, UK and to feature performances in cities, such as Wien, Austria; Paris, France and Budapest, Hungary.

Following the band’s initial European run, its members will rest and recharge before performing May 2 at the annual Launch Music Conference & Festival in Lancaster, PA.  The performance is a headlining show for the band.

Jeremy L. Weiss, the event’s founder and director, talked about the band’s inclusion at the festival/conference during a recent interview.

“The LAUNCH Music Conference & Festival parent company, The CI Companies, has had the pleasure of producing Hatebreed shows several times over the last couple of decades,” he said.  “They are a colossal force in metal and hardcore music, and a personal big-time favorite!  Easily some of the best dudes in the business to boot.  Love what they add to LAUNCH, and how this year’s event has such incredible musical diversity, and choice for attendees top down!”

Tickets for this year’s Launch Music Conference and Festival are available here.  This year is the 12th year the festival has taken place.

Following the performance at the Launch Music Conference & Festival, Hatebreed’s members will take more time to rest and recharge before heading back out on the road again for another string of live dates, this time across Australia from June 13-24.

The band’s current tour schedule is noted below.

KsE, Parkway Drive Announce Spring Co-Headlining Tour

Courtesy: Metal Blade Records

Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive are heading out on the road together.

The bands announced Monday that they will embark on the co-headlining “Collapse The World Tour” on April 18 in San Francisco, CA.  According to a news release from Metal Blade Records, KsE’s new label home, the tour is scheduled to run through May 16 in Milwaukee, WI and feature performances in cities, such as Houston, TX; Rockingham, NC and Detroit, MI.

After The Burial will serve as support on various dates.  Revolver magazine is serving as the tour’s title sponsor.

Killswitch Engage front man Jesse Leach said in a recent interview that the band is looking forward to touring with Parkway Drive again.

“After having the pleasure of destroying stages all over Australia with the Parkway guys just over a month ago, we couldn’t be more stoked to share the stage with them once again, this time in the states,” Leach said.  “Parkway Drive puts on an incredible live show, and we are excited to combine forces and bring the energy every night to a town near you.  I am absolutely certain fans of both bands are in for a hell of a time.  This will be one for the memories for sure — let’s rage!”

Parkway Drive front man Winston McCall echoed Leach’s sentiments.

“This co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage is a landmark for Parkway Drive in North America,” McCall said.  “Having smashed our way across the land for over a decade now, it is a humbling and defining moment to be sharing this slot with true heavy metal icons and personal heroes.  We have always aimed to maintain the highest standard of energy, connection and entertainment at our shows, a standard that has been set and maintained by KsE their entire career.  The concept of how epic this tour will be is mind blowing to me.  Bring on the insanity!”
