Bud Light: America, they say we’re a nation divided. They say we disagree on everything, but they’re wrong. We agree on a lot: liberty, justice, ROCK MUSIC, and beer. Nothing brings America together like Bud Light and nothing brings rock fans together like Rock On The Range.  That’s why we’ve formed the Bud Light Party – a party for everyone. We are the fake political party America needs right now and we’re stopping by Rock On The Range to supply ice cold beer all weekend long. Because no matter where we stand on the issues, we all sit on the bar stools with our hands raised in the air listening to our favorite rock bands. America has seen the light, and there’s a Bud in front of it.

LYRIC VIDEO FOR HATEBREED’S PROVOCATIVE TRACK “A.D.” IS RELEASED

LYRIC VIDEO FOR HATEBREED’S

PROVOCATIVE TRACK “A.D.” IS RELEASED

Song is Instant-Grat Track for Album Pre-Orders at iTunes

New Album – The Concrete Confessional – and North American Tour
Both Launch May 13

This dream can’t be What it used to be, ever again

On Hatebreed’s upcoming release The Concrete Confessional (May 13, Nuclear Blast), a number of tracks provide a pragmatic look at issues that have become front-and-center in today’s New Normal, and the track “A.D.” is a case in point.  Reflecting what is today a challenging time, it’s a song that fuses together frustration with torrential thrashed-out guitars, double bass drums, and Jamey Jasta’s immortal growl.

“‘A.D.’ was a way that I could voice my frustration about the loss of opportunities available to the average guy,” said lyricist/vocalist Jasta.  “With the government and big business drowning in corruption and greed, the average person is being squeezed, so achieving the American Dream is becoming less and less real.”

Check out the “A.D.” lyric video here:  

“We all need to pay closer attention to what our elected leaders are doing,” Jasta added.  “Start locally, in your own community, make your representatives accountable.”

“A.D.” is now available as an instant-grat track when The Concrete Confessional is pre-ordered on iTunes.  Go to http://nblast.de/HatebreedTCCIT

The Grammy-nominated Hatebreed – Jasta, Frank Novinec/guitar, Chris Beattie/.bass, Wayne Lozinak/guitar, and Matt Byrne/drums – worked again with long-time producer Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Suicide Silence, Whitechapel) on The Concrete Confessional, the band’s seventh full-length recording.  The band will support the album with extensive touring, starting first with a headline run of the European Impericon Festivals 2016 that starts April 22 in Germany, and then headlining a 25-date North American trek with Devildriver (on all dates), Devil You Know and Act of Definance on selected dates.  Go to www.hatebreed.com for the complete itinerary.

A.D.

This dream can’t be

What it used to be, ever again

I don’t want this dream or the grievance it brings

Can’t justify greed at the cost of equality

Tangled in endless archaic chains

Of power, profit, gain

What about the poor bearing poverty’s marks

What about the sick whose lives are torn apart

What about those whose rights aren’t respected

A nation of youth dejected

It’s time to rethink this dream you call American

Corrupt beliefs that some will call their heritage

A burdened soul once searching for liberty

Crowned in debt as the new face of slavery

Tied by design with a senseless hope

And a never-ending rope

What about the leaders abusing authority

Corrupt moral compass, guarded bureaucracy

What about those who died so we can live

Our complacency must end

It’s time to rethink this dream you call American

Corrupt beliefs that some will call their heritage

This dream can’t be

What it used to be, ever again

Spirits of the slain

Hiding in the corners of my mind

Screaming when I kneel to look inside

Stomach fucking turning

And now it’s disconcerting

Fight fire with fire, you’ll see everyone’s burning

Turn on the TV for the murder spree

Get distracted while they take your civil liberty

Thoughts and prayers again…

Is that what it’ll take

Which industries profit while lives are at stake

Now hear the media fools discuss the killer’s mind

Staring at the screen to tell us what they find

Manifesto, dollar worship, get on your knees

So they can sell us a cure for the American disease

It’s time to rethink this dream they call American

Corrupt system of beliefs some will call their heritage

It’s time to rethink this dream they call American

So one day it can mean something real again

Metal Church returns to Cleveland

METAL CHURCH – Cleveland, OH – Cleveland Agora 4/6/2016

Vanderhoof and Unger

April 6th marked the return to Cleveland by the legendary band METAL CHURCH. A revitalized band with the return of Mike Howe ( 20 year absence) on vocals fulfilled the anticipated fans. It was really great to see this band in action with Howe on vocals and Chris Caffery filling in on lead guitar. It was evident from the beginning of the show that these guys were excited and having fun on stage together. There were smiles on all their faces and the crowd reacted positively to this. For having Chris Caffery jump on board in a short period and to fill the shoes make his add-in

Chris Caffery – Cleveland

perfect. You can feel the chemistry between them and they were extremely tight. The highlight was indeed Mike Howe, his voice was incredible, he made the hairs on the back of your neck raise by his adoring vocals. You could close your eyes and remember when you was a kid listening to tracks off “The Dark”, “Blessing in Disguise, and “The Human Factor” and just smile. The new material went over great and he was spot on.

Kurdt Vanderhoof – Cleveland – photo by Dom Rini

Overall: 10/10 This show was tremendous from beginning to end. The highlights, Mike Howe in top form, the band had a strong chemistry and was tight, Chris Caffery fit in great, Jeff Plate put on a drum clinic, Steve Unger had great control of the stage and performed great and his back up vocals were top notch. The Riffmaster General Kurdt Vanderhoof, well what can you say he is a master and will always be one! There were a few songs that I really looked forward to hearing that was cut out probably due to the new material such as the songs “Metal Church”, and “Ton of Bricks.” With or without them this show was still the best of the year!
