Hope you’re ready for some new Hatebreed because the metallic hardcore crew have just announced the imminent arrival of a new album, and loosed the title track upon us.
The band’s eighth studio LP is dubbed Weight of the False Self, it was helmed by longtime Hatebreed collaborator Zeuss and it’s due to make landfall on Friday, 27th November.
“Sometimes, I think my reality consists of two irreducible elements, expressed by the age-old interior battle of the dualistic self,” Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta said of the new album.
“The angel on one shoulder stands firm, providing reason, wisdom, and compassion while the devil dances angrily on the other, ranting with passion, spite, and dark desire.
“I often wonder if a truly centered mind is attainable, an effortless and non-dualistic state of equilibrium,” he continued.
“Until then, I’ll just listen to both sides of my personality and hope I make the right choice. At the end of the day, the listener will choose to hear what they want, but when I am writing, I imagine the voice of the angel to be a lil’ louder.”
