Jamey Jasta Talks More About New Hatebreed Album In New Video

On Hatebreed’s upcoming album The Concrete Confessional (May 13, Nuclear Blast worldwide), the lyrics grapple with a number of the injustices and frustrations that people are experiencing in today’s society.  Songs such as “A.D.,” “Us Against Us,” and “Looking Down the Barrel of Today” speak to these issues.  “Sometimes it’s not so easy to have a positive mental attitude,” said Hatebreed’s lyricist Jamey Jasta, “but at the end of the tunnel, there is light.”  Hear more of what Jasta has to say about the new album on this brand new video clip below.

In addition, beginning today, Best Buy will exclusively make available a limited-edition CD single with the new track “A.D.” and a live version of “Destroy Everything,” recorded at the UK’s 2009 Download Festival.
