Hatebreed Announce 25th Anniversary 2019 North American Tour
Start wrapping your knuckles now because Connecticut's kings of hardcore, Hatebreed, are hitting the road in 2019 for a celebratory 25th anniversary tour backed by a thumping list of support acts.
Obituary, Cro-Mags, Terror and Fit for an Autopsy will all join Hatebreed on the North American trek. It's set to kick off on April 4 in Philadelphia (with Municipal Waste and without Obituary) and will come to a close over one month later on April 20 in the band's home town of New Haven. There will be one select show in San Diego, California on March 7 with Bleeding Through, Asesino and Strife. Check listings for the complete trek carefully as there are some alterations to the main package.
"I can't believe it's been 25 years already," said Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta. "We're excited to bring out this massive tour package with some of our favorite bands. Every band on this bill is a headliner in their own right. The show will be run festival-style with bands you don't want to miss playing early. Activate the pit!"
Guitarist Frank Novinec added, "Looking forward to this one — 25 years of Hatebreed, celebrated with not only friends, but a couple bands who influenced us so much that we covered their songs on For the Lions. Come celebrate the entire catalog with us!"
"All killer, no filler here," affirmed Hatebreed drummer Matt Byrne. "This April will be a sick tour for Hatebreed. Celebrating 25 years is a big accomplishment for any band. But it's that much sweeter when you're doing it with some of your favorite bands in tow. We love Obituary so much that we covered them on our For the Lions record. We love Cro-Mags so much that we covered them on our For the Lions record. We love Terror and Fit for an Autopsy so much that... ;) See you all in April!"
