To celebrate, the band has also shared the music video for record opener, Instinctive (Slaughterlust). The clip was directed by Justin Reich and features visuals as killer as the track itself.
“In a fight for survival, which a lot of us are in right now, we must channel our inner animal and trust our instincts,” says frontman Jamey Jasta.
With over two decades of experience under their belt, Hatebreed challenged themselves and their writing style, aiming to produce material that was relevant to a contemporary world flooded with overstimulation, emotional dampening, and lack of social patience. “Weight of The False Self is a perfect representation of Hatebreed in 2020, a fresh onslaught of soon-to-be classics with all the elements that led you here since day one,” says guitarist Frank Novinec.
Drummer Matt Byrne adds, “There’s no shortage of beefy riffs and adrenaline-fueled drums on this record. I’m proud to say that we will consistently provide a soundtrack to which you can mosh in your living room and destroy your apartment.”
Hatebreed recently shared a new album trailer, where Jasta and guitarist Wayne Lozinak discussed the process of working with producer Zeuss.
