HATEBREED Frontman Checks In From OZZFEST

HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta has issued the following update:

"It's been a while since I checked in and I wanted to let everyone know that Ozzfest has been absolutely amazing and we can not thank everyone enough.

"This is our fifth time on Ozzfest and we all agree that this year is by far the best response we've ever gotten and the most fun we've ever had on tour. We are truly grateful!

"The second stage is a great mixture of underground and extreme music so make sure you show up early and catch all the bands.

"We've been hanging hard with our good pals 3 INCHES OF BLOOD and BEHEMOTH every day and on our off day shows with LAMB OF GOD which have been completely UNREAL. LAMB OF GOD tears the roof off of every venue; it's an honor to share the stage with them. Randy [Blythe] has rode on the HATEBREED bus a few nights and raged with us til 6 am; it's been great!

"We urge you all to get your ass out to these shows! We're also excited that our pals DEVILDRIVER will be joining us on Ozzfest. It's gonna be killer! Come by the Jager and FYE tents to say hello to us we sign at Jager at 2:00 p.m. every day and at FYE right after we play. I will be doing some solo signings at the Monster Energy truck (times TBA) and also at the I.L.V. tent (after STATIC-X plays) so come by and say hi! See you on the road!"

Professionally filmed video footage of HATEBREED's entire concert at the Hovefestivalen, a brand new five-day festival which was held June 25-29, 2007 on the island of Trom√ły, just outside the city of Arendal in Norway, has been posted at the NRK P3 web site.

A short video interview with HATEBREED guitarist Frank "3 Gun" Novinec, shot by the Roadrunner Italy team on June 20 a few hours before the HATEBREED gig in Turin, has been posted online at this location.

As previously reported, HATEBREED has been confirmed for the Persistence Tour 2007, set to take place in November/December. Also scheduled to appear are AGNOSTIC FRONT, IGNITE, EVERGREEN TERRACE, SWORN ENEMY and DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR.

HATEBREED is continuing to tour in support of its new album, "Supremacy", which has sold around 100,000 copies in the United States since its late August release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
