Hatebreed Frontman Dishes on Road Work, Covers, Lineup — Exclusive Video

When Hatebreed‘s always-gracious vocalist and hardcore scene Renaissance Man Jamey Jasta descended on the Noisecreep office for our exclusive video interview with him a few weeks ago, he was happy to offer his opinions on a panoply of subjects, ranging from the never-ending traffic in his home state of Connecticut to how he really perceives his band’s May 2009 covers album ‘For the Lions.’

Connecticut Traffic, which is always bumper to bumper, regardless of time of day:
“There is some sort of perpetual work contract and they want to constantly do road work. It’s all about the tax payers money being spent.”

The ‘For the Lions’ covers record isn’t really a proper studio album: “The covers record is like a mix tape. It’s mean to be something that you give it to a friend, like a mix CD.”

The exit of guitarist Sean Martin doesn’t change the dynamic or image of the band: “Hatebreed is bigger than any one of us. It has become its own monster and has to go on.”

Self-titling the album: “After listening to the whole record, I thought, ‘Is there a sentence or world that could describe it better than self-titled? It is a definitive record for us and we’re proud that it can be self-titled.”

The instrumental track on ‘Hatebreed': “We did an instrumental track and we knew it was out in left field, but we thought it was a moving piece, a cool break and a break in the heaviness of the record. As a band, you want to progress, but not too much where you turn off the die-hards, but you want to progress enough where it is interesting, still, for us.”
