Ever wonder what it looks like to be stoked about your brand new record? Just look into the eyes of Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta as he talks about the already critically-acclaimed, The Concrete Confessional and you’ll know. Better yet, catch the band live. If you were at San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom last night, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Thursday’s show was by no means sold out, but what space could have been filled by more people was taken up by an enthusiastic crowd that got through the doors early to catch supporting acts Devil You Know and DevilDriver and proved without a doubt that the number of people in the room does not a good show make. Even with the album out, Hatebreed went wide across their catalog, hitting all the albums and promising an entirely new setlist for Friday’s show in Sacramento. No doubt tempting many to make the drive for a second dose.
Even if you do not own a single album, live Hatebreed is a hard not to like. They’re a band that clearly loves being on stage and know how to deliver a pummeling that keeps the audience thrashing along. With The Concrete Confessional fresh out of the can, there will certainly be plenty of more opportunities to catch them.
