Hatebreed
Hatebreed
The New Haven, CT-based Hatebreed got together in 1993 for the purpose of creating a "back to basics" hardcore band with heavy, metallic guitars, screaming vocals, and 30-second songs. Consisting of Jamey Jasta (vocals), Lou "BoHATEBREED is excited to announce the upcoming "10 Years of Perseverance" fall tour, a United States headline tour to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the band's ground-breaking 2002 major-label debut, Perseverance. The tour features direct support from Whitechapel and special guests All Shall Perish and Deez Nuts, and kicks off on September 13th in Clifton Park, NY.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 8th. In addition, an exclusive pre-sale will begin on Wednesday, June 6th. HATEBREED will also be offering an exclusive VIP Diehard Package that includes a Meet and Greet, Commemorative Diehard Laminate, Poster and more! Make sure to head over to www.hatebreed.com/VIP for all ticketing and VIP Diehard details.

Perseverance is recognized worldwide as a landmark album in HATEBREED's musical catalog—an album that skyrocketed the band to immediate leader-of-the-pack status after its release. Released on March 26, 2002, the band's second full-length studio album blasted open the doors of American DIY Hardcore in mainstream culture with songs such as 'I Will Be Heard', 'A Call For Blood' and the album's title track, 'Perseverance'. Since the release of Perseverance, the fusion of hardcore and metal has been emulated and evolved relentlessly, but never duplicated with the same originality and brutality that HATEBREED accomplished with their first major-label release.

Perseverance debuted within the top 50 of the Billboard Top 200 chart and has since gone on to sell roughly half a million copies worldwide.


HATEBREED recently announced that they are in the studio self-producing their upcoming full-length album with co-producer assistance from world-renowned metal producers Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold) and Chris "Zeuss" Harris (Suicide Silence, All That Remains, Shadows Fall).

The band just reported that they have finished the drum tracks. When asked about the recording process, drummer Matt Byrne said, "I got the biggest and best drum tone ever for this new album and Zeuss really helped me dial in the sound. Having 25+ days of pre-production really helped make this an efficient and fun recording session."

Whitechapel
Whitechapel
Whitechapel is an American deathcore band from Knoxville, Tennessee. Since their inception in 2006, the band has released three studio albums and four music videos and are currently signed to Metal Blade Records. Whitechapel are notable for employing three guitarists, each of which perform specific parts during performances. Their band name is derived from a district in the built-up inner city of London, known as Whitechapel.
All Shall Perish
All Shall Perish
Death metal and technical grind have an interesting way of co-existing. While each genre shares characteristics with the other it would seem that many bands would rather stay narrow in scope and keep the two as oil and water. However some outstanding young acts in the last few years have managed to rejuvenate the underground by encompassing more of extreme metal's tangents and delivering some very impacting and fresh ideas into a seemingly over-cooked stew. Despised Icon, Beneath The Massacre, Leng Tch'e and others have thrown all caution (and rules) into the wind and are re-defining the death and grind genres with vibrant ideas and unrelenting delivery. Oakland's ALL SHALL PERISH are cut from that same jib; delivering brutal music that possesses a natural need to experiment and push the boundaries of the extreme underground. Their second offering, The Price Of Existence, will turn the death metal and underground hordes on their collective ear, and when all is said and done the band is sure to be touted as one of the best young extreme acts from the West Coast in this new millennium.

Finding common ground with a taste for such bands as Dying Fetus, Opeth, Cannibal Corpse, Hatebreed, Blood Has Been Shed and At The Gates, ALL SHALL PERISH formed with the intent of not being labeled with the restricting monikers of "death metal", "hardcore" or "metalcore", rather they simply wanted to brutalize audiences and get people moving. The band's 2005 Nuclear Blast debut Hate, Malice, Revenge proved that they were capable of blending various styles while delivering memorable and intelligent songs to all fans of metal and hardcore. Their live show brought the band's vicious attack from coast to coast with such known acts like Six Feet Under, Agnostic Front, As I Lay Dying, Bleeding Through, Brujeria, Dying Fetus, Diecast and Hate Eternal, and before anyone knew it ALL SHALL PERISH had racked up almost 10,000 units via Soundscan.

Change is inevitable, and when you're 100% committed to your art it's imperative that only the best people be involved. ASP took the necessary steps to outfit themselves with the best line-up available for The Price Of Existence. New vocalist Hernan "Eddie" Hermida's delivery adds more depth and clarity to the band's overall impact, while the technical skills of guitarist Ben Orum and new axesmith Chris Storey are as top-notch as those of the most seasoned players in underground metal ("Prisoner Of War" and "There Is No Business To Be Done On A Dead Planet" are perfect examples). Powerhouse drummer Matt Kuykendall gives a heart stopping performance, immediately ranking him just under such elite players as Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy) and Derek Roddy (Hate Eternal). Tracks like "Eradication", "We Hold These Truths" and the ever-so-catchy "Wage Slaves" are brutal and would knock a gorilla on its backside, while "The Last Relapse" and the moody instrumental "Interlude" show a melodic side to the band which proves that ALL SHALL PERISH have forged ahead light years and have delivered a regal metal gem. The Price Of Existence is demanding indeed!
