Connecticut-based hardcore/metal masters HATEBREED will release their new album, "The Concrete Confessional", on May 13 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The follow-up to 2013's "The Divinity Of Purpose" was produced by longtime collaborator Chris "Zeuss" Harris (ROB ZOMBIE, SUICIDE SILENCE, WHITECHAPEL) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, MEGADETH). The artwork was created by Marcelo Vasco (SLAYER).
A two-minute trailer for HATEBREED's forthcoming tour, featuring audio samples of three songs from "The Concrete Confessional" — "A.D.", "Looking Down The Barrel Of Today" and "The Apex Within" — can be seen below.
Regarding the "The Concrete Confessional" artwork, HATEBREED vocalist Jamey Jasta said: "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."

02. Looking Down The Barrel Of Today
03. Seven Enemies
04. In The Walls
