Metalcore maestros Hatebreed have set a release date of 13th May 2016 for new album 'The Concrete Confessional', via Nuclear Blast Records. In a treat for fans the U.S. band have unveiled a video trailer for the album featuring three brand new songs; 'A.D.,' 'Looking Down The Barrel of Today,' and 'The Apex Within.' The video can be viewed below.
The seventh studio release from the Bridgeport crew, The Concrete Confessional was recorded in Connecticut, produced by long-time collaborator Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Suicide Silence, Whitechapel), and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Megadeth).
With striking artwork created by Marcelo Vasco, the new tracks feature provocative lyrics that span various topics at the forefront of today's global conscience; including the rise of terrorism, police brutality, moral decay, greed and betrayal.
Available to pre-order in a number of U.K. exclusives including a CD / beanie bundle, and a limited edition white vinyl version, Amazon and iTunes links are set to follow.
In what will be a busy year for Hatebreed, the band have extensive touring lined up to support 'The Concrete Confessional'. Kicking off with a slot at this year's Impericon Festival 2016 that kicks off April 22 in Germany, the tour rolls into the U.K. for dates in Manchester and London, before heading to North America for a twenty-five date headline run. Tickets for all shows can be purchased through hatebreed.com.
