Hatebreed is the fifth studio album from American Metalcore band Hatebreed. The album was released on September 29, 2009. Frontman Jamey Jasta had this to say regarding the new album: "This is our fifth studio album and it's a monster! We've survived some pretty rough times and the music shows it. There was no reason to change the recipe that our fans know and love but we added a few brutal new ingredients and we're more than amped on the results. Violence is a given!"[3] This is the first full-length, non-cover studio album that founding guitarist Wayne Lozinak appears on. [4]
