Hatebreed has been forced to postpone the release of their latest album. The band was originally planning to drop Weight Of The False Self on May 29th, but amid the Coronavirus pandemic, the labels manufacturers have been forced to shut down production. Along with this news, it should be noted that the band has also postponed the release of a new single which was supposed to drop on Friday, March 20th and their headline tour in the spring has been cancelled. Their European/UK tour with Parkway Drive has been rescheduled.
Jamey Jasta clarified on the matter via his Twitter:
Thanx you too, 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 https://t.co/ADGu3m3VWB
