E1 Music to Release Long-Awaited New Studio Album From Metal-Hardcore Leaders Hatebreed in Fall of 2009

Roadrunner to Release New Studio Album in All Other Territories

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 22, 2009) - Metal-Hardcore juggernauts HATEBREED have re-entered the studio to begin work on their long-awaited new studio album which is slated for a fall 2009 release.

HATEBREED's follow up to 2006's "SUPREMACY" will be released on E1 Music in North America and Roadrunner in all other territories. The new album will be self-titled and is shaping up to be one of the band's most ferocious albums ever.

Frontman Jamey Jasta comments, "I can't wait to work with E1 Music and Roadrunner International on this release -- E1 did a great job with our 'LIVE DOMINANCE' DVD and our recent covers album. We're so pumped to give them both our new studio album!"

The announcement of the band's new album is also part of E1's continuing / expanding relationship with the group after its initial first 2 releases together, including the #1 charting Billboard DVD "LIVE DOMINANCE" and the recently released covers album, "FOR THE LIONS."

Scott Givens, E1 Music's VP of Metal says, "E1 Entertainment is proud to be the home of Hatebreed in North America. I speak for everyone here when I say we are 100% committed to putting every resource we have behind the new record. Jamey Jasta is part of our E1 family and we are looking forward to continuing to work with him on all of his endeavors both now and in the future."

Wally van Middendorp, with Roadrunner International, adds, "After having released their last two studio albums on Roadrunner internationally, it is an honor to work again with HATEBREED, a band that is on top of its musical league."

The new album will be once again produced by Zeuss and will feature the return of original guitar player Wayne Lozinak (who recently replaced departed guitarist Sean Martin) alongside core members Chris Beattie (bass), Matt Byrne (drums), Frank "3 Gun" Novinec (Guitar) and singer Jamey Jasta.

Jasta continues, "The record is mean as hell, fans of American metal and east coast hardcore will be very pleased and maybe even somewhat surprised."

The band is currently taking a breather from the recording studio and touring Europe and South America doing a series of high profile festival appearances and headline shows in before returning to the U.S. for its own headline DECIMINATION OF THE NATION tour which begins in late July and runs through September.

To date, HATEBREED have sold over 1 million albums in the U.S. alone and toured the world with the likes of Slayer, Slipknot, System of a Down, Lamb of God, Korn, Killswitch Engage, Disturbed, Black Sabbath and much more.
