Frank Novinec of Hatebreed spoke with Capital Chaos on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival in Mountain View, California on July 11th. Frank talked about how the prior night was his first day on Mayhem, a bunch of time after their set before the buses leave prompts a lot of partying, the singles on their latest album and doing a live video recently. “We just did the live video for ‘Everyone Bleeds Now’, keeping the album current, everything’s been good. We blew it up last night at the show and we’ll probably do the same here.”
The brief interview at YouTube has since been removed.
Hatebreed are out with the video to their new single ‘In Ashes We Shall Reap’, off the New Haven, Connecticut metalcore group’s self-titled fifth studio album, out now on E1 Music.
“The video is a simple performance video, and we wanted to say what we’ve always said with our videos: It’s about getting that charge out of the live setting, whether you are in the band are in the crowd,” frontman Jamey Jasta told Noisecreep. “You are there at the show to release negative energy and get something positive out of it.”

Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta spoke with Revolver magazine about the band’s split with Roadrunner Records following the release of ‘Supremacy’ in 2006. “They had a bunch of people on their label, and we felt we didn’t get the publicity push that we deserved for our last record,” he explained. “We realized we need to go to a place where we can be the big fish in the small pond. But ultimately there’s no hard feelings; the split was good on both sides.”
As for the Connecticut metalcore group’s efforts to find another label, he revealed, “Well, first we’re gonna do a separate deal for our DVD. There’s always been so much red tape with DVDs, and we want to make sure we do it right. We’re actually recording the majority of the footage over Christmas break during my label’s annual Stillborn Fest. I’m hoping for a May or June 2008 DVD release.”

Hatebreed has issued the following update: “As most of you know, we had to cancel our shows in Cleveland and Raleigh due to a family emergency. Chris Beattie’s [bass] grandfather George had become ill and subsequently passed away yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris, his family and those who were close to George. May he rest in peace. Our tour will resume tomorrow [Friday, August 11] in St. Pete, Florida @ The State Theater (one of our favorite places to play) but we will not be able to play the last date of Ozzfest [August 13 in West Palm Beach, Florida] since we will be attending funeral services. Please understand our circumstances. Thanks.”
Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta recently spoke to Ray Hogan of NorwalkAdvocate.com about the group’s participation in the 11th annual Ozzfest, which rolls into Hartford, CT Sunday. This year marks Hatebreed’s fourth year on the Ozzfest but first on its main stage. “We had doubts not knowing what there was going to be for a pit area. Playing to seats is a new element to us,” Jasta said of appearing on the main stage. “We’re playing to double or triple the amount of people on the other three Ozzfests we’ve done. It’s more people that want to rock out and not be annihilated in the pit. Everybody is having a good time out there. We are really the only extreme band on the main stage.” The article at norwalkadvocate.com has since been removed.
