Hatebreed: announce release date for new covers album “For The Lions”; new track online & more!
Hardcore metal leaders HATEBREED are set to release their long-awaited new covers album, “For The Lions” via Century Media Records in Europe on May 11th, 2009 and E1 Music (formerly Koch Records) in the US on May 5th, 2009.
The songs on “For The Lions” were carefully selected by HATEBREED to represent a panoramic view of some of their favorite artists and greatest musical inspirations. Having completed the album in 2008, the band felt their work wasn’t done yet and just returned to the studio with original guitar player Wayne Lozinak to record additional tracks for the album. The 4 new covers are among the most bludgeoning the band has ever recorded and include “Ghosts Of War” (Slayer), “Supertouch/Shitfit (Bad Brains), “Thirsty” (Black Flag) and “Suicidal Maniac” (Suicidal Tendencies).
“For The Lions” was produced, engineered and mixed by long-time band associate Chris "Zeuss" Harris and if you scroll through the player at the band’s MySpace you can now check out a snippet of “Suicidal Maniac”, so head over to:

In additional HATEBREED news, the band announces the departure of guitar player Sean M. Martin welcoming back to the fold original guitarist Wayne Lozinak.
Front man Jamey Jasta says, “I speak on behalf of all of us and we support Sean's decision to leave and want him to be happy and successful at everything he does. There are no bad feelings at all and you'll probably see him hanging on stage at some of our local shows. We're family and he will be missed but HATEBREED will forge on.”
Sean M. Martin comments "After 10 years, I've decided to leave HATEBREED. This in no way reflects my personal relationship with Jamey, Chris, Matt and Frank, they're four of my closest friends and I'll always love them with all my heart. I want to thank all of the fans as well as the guys in the band and crew, past and present, for giving me some of the best times of my life."
