Hatebreed Frontman Talks 'Concrete Confessional' Album & Favorite Dive Bar Adventure: Video

If you're ever in Erie, Pennsylvania, scope out Norb's Bar

Hatebreed have been missing on the studio album front since January 2013's The Divinity of Purpose. This Friday, the wait ends with The Concrete Confessional, a 13-track, 37-minute collection via Nuclear Blast.

Frontman Jamey Jasta told Fuse his band "upped the ferocity," saying the record features "more speed, little bit more solos, technicality." He says the five-piece focused on dynamics, structuring and choruses, adding that longtime fans will notice new vocal techniques on a couple songs. Watch Jasta break down The Concrete Confessional above.

Below, the 38-year-old Connecticut native told Fuse about his favorite dive bar, a spot called Norb's Bar in Erie, Pennsylvania, His band once found a summertime haven there on a particularly air-conditioner–deficient day on tour with Ringworm and Shadows Fall. "We drank every last drop of booze in that entire place," he said. Watch the amusing anecdote below, and pre-order Hatebreed's The Concrete Confessional here.
