Hatebreed Unveil Title, Release Date + Artwork for 2013 Album ‘The Divinity of Purpose’
Connecticut hardcore act Hatebreed have finally revealed the juicy details about their upcoming sixth studio album, which is titled ‘The Divinity of Purpose.’ Along with U.S. and European release dates, Hatebreed have also unveiled the cover art for the highly anticipated record.
We recently reported on Hatebreed signing with Razor & Tie records in the North America and Nuclear Blast Records in Europe, but now we’ve got some release dates officially confirmed for both territories. Europe will see a Jan. 25 release for ‘The Divinity of Purpose,’ while North American audiences will be given a Jan. 29 release date.
The upcoming record was co-produced by the band, along with Zeuss (Suicide Silence, All That Remains, Shadows Fall) and Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold), who also mixed the album. The artwork for ‘The Divinity of Purpose,’ created by painter Eliran Kantor, is reminiscent of classic religious artworks of the Renaissance era.
