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.

So it seems as though Hatebreed is going to be bringing their level of break neck live intensity to a venue near you and doing this with Devildriver and more. I’ve cribbed the press release and dates for you all to enjoy which you can see after the poster but don’t worry, I will return with some closing thoughts after that.
The Press Release:
The Grammy nominated Connecticut based juggernaut, HATEBREED, will embark on a North American headlining tour in support of their new album, The Concrete Confessional, starting on May 13. Joining them on the trek are modern metal stalwarts DEVILDRIVER, label mates DEVIL YOU KNOW and Metal Blade recording artists Act Of Defiance. Comments vocalist Jamey Jasta:
“New album and tour in 2016?! Lets do this! Our return to the states has been a long time coming and we could not be more excited! Fans have been asking for us to tour with DEVILDRIVER and DEVIL YOU KNOW for a long time and we’re pumped to have ACT OF DEFIANCE on some shows as well. Get your tickets and we’ll see you in the pit!”
Artist: Black Label Society Venue: Best Buy Theater (New York, NY) Opener: Down, Devil You Know, Butcher Babies Date: 5/10/2014 Label: eOne Entertainment
I had last caught Black Label Society during the 2013 Gigantour that featured Megadeth and Newsted (the band with former Metallica/Voivod bassist Jason Newsted in case you were unaware). Now that tour itself actually had three more bands on the daily roster but not during its NYC stop which was instead broken up into two shows and left the one without BLS and Newsted being cancelled. For that show Zakk and the BLS boys were supporting the live release “Unblackened” which is a solid recommendation in my book because it was a heavier version of an Unplugged album and from top to bottom this was some raw stuff. There was even a video release to go along with it. Fast forwarding to where we are this evening, it was now time for what was called “The Revolver Golden Gods Tour” and this event seemed to work in tandem with the magazines own awards show. You’ve heard of “The Golden Gods Awards” right? Good, let’s continue then. The four bands on this touring package would begin with Butcher Babies, Devil You Know, Down and close out with the headlining Black Label Society. Since I always find a massive event like this of interest I would get there nice and early in order to be able to bring you thoughts and images on each of the performers. Butcher Babies would be the first item of focus – here we go. Continue reading Black Label Society @ Best Buy Theater (5/10/2014)→
