The summer is bound to get hotter in some parts of these United States with the news that Hatebreed will be hitting the headlining stage with support from Devildriver and The Devil You Know. Check out the press release along with the poster and dates below and I’ll come back with a brief closer.
The Press Release:
HATEBREED will embark on their second assault on North America this fall, this time with their friends in DEVILDRIVER and DEVIL YOU KNOW. The band also released a music video for the song “Something’s Off,” which comes from their recent Billboard-charting release The Concrete Confessional.
Check out the clip, directed by David Broadsky, here.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll keep this one short and sweet if that is even possible with such a lineup of bands. This is one of those shows that the audience is going to want to witness from the beginning to the end if they know what is good for them. I’ve seen all three of these acts numerous times and can say that they each deliver the goods on their own so one can only imagine what the combustable force of their union will bring to the table. Sadly they’re not coming close enough to me to be a part of the action so you readers will have to let me know how it all turns out. You can also let me know what you think about this tour in the comments below.
