Hatebreed remain one of the most relevant and impactful acts in the hard rock and metal scenes. The Connecticut band will celebrate 25 years of ruthless breakdowns, pit-stirring anthems, and poignant lyrics across eight albums and consistently sold-out shows in 2019.
The band, which has gone from playing basements and backyards to being a featured worldwide attraction on countless festivals and high-profile tours from OZZFest to Warped Tour to Download, will commemorate two-plus decades by embarking on a 25th anniversary tour.
The second leg of dates has just been announced and will hit the midwest and West Coast in May. The second leg will feature support from Obituary, Madball, Prong, and Skeletal Remains from May 7 through May 15. Agnostic Front will replace Madball on the dates that run from May 17 through May 26. Tickets for the second leg go on sale on Friday, February 15 at 10am local time. VIP upgrades for select dates go on sale on February 25.
The first leg of the tour kicks off on April 4 in Philadelphia and runs through April 20 in the band's home state. It will feature support from Obituary and Cro-Mags, two bands that Hatebreed have covered in their career and who have influenced the signature and instantly recognizable Hatebreed sound. Terror and Fit for an Autopsy will round out this "can't miss" juggernaut of a lineup.
"I can't believe it's been 25 years already," said Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta. "We're excited to bring out this massive tour package with some of our favorite bands. Every band on this bill is a headliner in their own right. The show will be run festival-style with bands you don't want to miss playing early. Activate the pit!"
"There's something special about being able to take out bands who influenced your own band," said guitarist Frank Novinec. "This is the kind of stuff you dream about as a kid. We are truly honored to bring this package to everyone as part of our 25-year anniversary."
