HATEBREED treated its hometown fans to a signing of its new album, "Supremacy", at Exile On Main St in Hamden, Connecticut on Tuesday (August 29).
This was a very special event because the bandmembers grew up shopping at this store themselves. Al, the owner, told stories about vocalist Jamey Jasta's frequent visits when he was just forming HATEBREED 10 years ago.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature wasn't too cooperative, because it poured almost all day. But this only emphasized the dedication of HATEBREED's fans, who were lining up for hours to shake hands with the band and met their arrival with a roar of cheering and fists in the air.
For their part, the guys in HATEBREED were happy and honored to spend the day of "Supremacy"'s release in the community that has supported them since day one. They took pictures and autographed multiple items for each fan.
As previously reported, a special "Headbanger's Ball" episode dedicated to HATEBREED will air this Saturday, September 2 on MTV2. Also scheduled to air this Saturday immediately following "Headbanger's Ball" is a "Making of the Video" episode dedicated to HATEBREED's "Defeatist" clip. The video was shot on July 31 in Naugatuck, Connecticut in an abandoned factory which was also used by Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise for the end sequence of the film "War of the Worlds" and was helmed by acclaimed director Dale "Rage" Resteghini (TRIVIUM, MUDVAYNE, SHADOWS FALL, MADBALL).
