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.

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.”
