Hatebreed have released the ferocious opening track to their new album, accompanied by a new video. “Instinctive (Slaughterlust)” is the second song to be taken from their forthcoming LP, Weight Of The False Self. Check out the video, directed by Justin Reich, below.
“In a fight for survival, which a lot of us are right now, we must channel our inner animal and trust our instincts”, frontman Jamey Jasta tells us.
Weight of The False Self, the band’s 8th studio album is set for release on 27th November via Nuclear Blast. The 12-track album is packed with the band’s signature pit-starting anthems and is available for pre-order right now.
Renowned for their ability to provide an intense and cathartic release for their fans, Hatebreed challenged themselves and their writing style in order to produce material that is exceptionally relatable in a contemporary world flooded with overstimulation, emotional dampening, and lack of social patience. “Weight of The False Self is a perfect representation of Hatebreed in 2020, a fresh onslaught of soon-to-be classics with all the elements that led you here since day one,” explains guitarist Frank Novinec.
Drummer Matt Byrne shares, “There’s no shortage of beefy riffs and adrenaline-fueled drums on this record. I’m proud to say that we will consistently provide a soundtrack to which you can mosh in your living room and destroy your apartment.”
