ALBUM REVIEW: Architects – For Those That Wish To Exist


Please indulge me for one moment. I am not usually one for breaking the fourth wall when reviewing an album but bear with….

Hatebreed Postpones New Album Indefinitely


In a post to social media today, Hatebreed has announced they are postponing their new album indefinitely due to production delays/shutdowns due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. This follows last night’s announcement that their spring tour dates are totally canceled.Jamey Jasta commented: “[The] album is postponed indefinitely. I’m told retail + pressing plants in EU & N. America will be closing or are closed already making manufacturering/pre-orders impossible. Our fans buy a lot of vinyl/CDs so the label needs to protect their investment understandably”. Hatebreed is the first major band on a major metal label to postpone a highly anticipated album in 2020. Sadly, we expect more of these.
