Hatebreed Release Music Video for ‘Looking Down the Barrel of Today’
When it comes to hardcore, few match the intensity of frontman Jamey Jasta while simultaneously radiating an immense aura of positivity. The notion remains the same on Hatebreed's music video for the punchy "Looking Down the Barrel of Today."
The video opens up with a slide stating "Welcome to two minutes and 47 seconds with Hatebreed" and gives way to the spotlight guitar intro. The intensity picks up when Jasta opens up "I once had a shotgun to my head / they said I wasn't worth the bullets / now the world is my trigger / and I'm here to f--king pull it!" as his voice becomes more enraged with each line. Pounding drums accent the rhythm before the whole band smashes through with what will undoubtedly kick up dust in the pit when played live.
Spliced between clips of Hatebreed performing in a rehearsal room are messages like, "Heavy music has helped us through some very hard times," "Today is all we have...live it to the fullest" and more messages projecting positive mental attitude and the general uplifting spirit Hatebreed have always maintained.
Hatebreed will be releasing The Concrete Confessional on May 13 through Nuclear Blast and pre-orders can be placed here. Out in support, the hardcore stalwarts will hit the road the day of the release with direct support coming from DevilDriver and additional support coming from Devil You Know, who will drop off and be replaced by thrashers Act of Defiance.
