Exclusive for Premium Members
Trailblazers of metallic hardcore crossover, Hatebreed have announced a special anniversary run of shows marking two decades of their landmark sophomore album, Perseverance. The 13-date fall trek includes a bolstered line-up of support that includes savvy veterans and steadily ascending new school aggressors.
Tapping desert death outfit Gatecreeper and metalcore OGs Bleeding Through for select dates, Hatebreed, as champions of heavy culture, have also recruited Florida deathcore unit Bodysnatcher and the PNW pummel of hardcore crew Dying Wish for the duration of the tour.
Released on March 26, 2002, Perseverance was the band’s second full-length studio album and paved the way for hardcore and metal to enter the mainsteam music discussion with songs such as “I Will Be Heard”, “A Call For Blood” and the album’s title track, “Perseverance”. Perseverance debuted within the top 50 of The Billboard 200 and has inspired both fans and bands alike. The fusion of hardcore and metal has been emulated and evolved relentlessly, but has never been duplicated with the same originality that Hatebreed accomplished two decades ago.
The anniversary run adds to the band’s extensive 2022 touring schedule thus far that has seen them make huge appearances at So What Music Festival, Upheaval, and a celebration of Perseverance at the 2022 edition of This Is Hardcore. The band is currently in on the road in support of Anthrax’s 40th anniversary tour along with Black Label Society.
