Relentless reliability is intrinsic to longevity in the music business—or any other business for that matter. No giving up is allowed. No promise can go unfulfilled. If people can depend on you, they'll believe in you and stick with you until death.
Since forming in 1994, Grammy award-nominated hardcore and metal stalwarts Hatebreed have constantly crushed with every subsequent album.
Their six full-length effort and first for Nuclear Blast, The Divinity of Purpose, proudly upholds that tradition cast in almost two decades of blood, tears, and flames. It's everything fans have come to expect from the Connecticut-based quintet. Be prepared to witness their flame rise high once again…

The Divinity of Purpose began to take shape in 2010. The band had welcomed back original guitarist Lozinak for 2009's covers set, For the Lions, and their self-titled fifth effort the same year. During a two-year tour cycle, they expanded their global stamp through performing to rabid crowds in Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, and South America. In addition, they ravaged the U.S. and Europe alongside the likes of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and LAMB OF GOD as well as on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival twice. However, they collectively decided to amp everything up for album number six.

In 2012, they also found the perfect partner to release the album in Nuclear Blast. HATEBREED instantly felt home on their roster. "Heavy music is in a great place right now."

Right now, HATEBREED's heart is beating stronger than ever, but that's nothing new. "HATEBREED has always meant the same thing to me," he concludes. "We maintain that anger and frustration, but it's not aimless. There's positivity to releasing that energy. It has a cyclical power. The fans that really vibe off it created everything we have. We’ve done things we dreamt of as kids because of our hard work and because the fans have gotten us to this global level. They give us purpose to make the most impact with our records that we can."

The band is currently in the studio with longtime producer Zeuss (ROB ZOMBIE, SUICIDE SILENCE, WHITECHAPEL) finishing up on »The Concrete Confessional«. The record will be mixed by Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, MEGADETH) and tentatively scheduled for release in the Spring of 2016 via Nuclear Blast.
