Hatebreed detail The Concrete Confessional

Hatebreed have shared full details of their upcoming seventh album.

The Concrete Confessional will be released on May 13 via Nuclear Blast and the artwork, created by Slayer collaborator Marcelo Vaso, can be viewed below along with the tracklist.

Frontman Jamey Jasta describes the record as “no glitz, no glam, just pits, all slam.”

The follow-up to 2013’s The Divinity of Purpose is produced by longtime collaborator Zeuss, who has also worked with Rob Zombie and Suicide Silence, and mixed by Lamb Of God and Megadeth engineer Josh Wilbur.

On the artwork, Jasta adds: “I think Da Vinci said it best when he said painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.

“Marcelo was able to capture a feeling that will accompany our musical and lyrical vision and he put together a striking piece that speaks volumes.”

Hatebreed have also confirmed a string of tour dates.
