Connecticut hardcore mainstays Hatebreed are poised to release another slab of pit-ready anthems by way of The Concrete Confessional, due in the spring of this year on Nuclear Blast. The album will yield another tour and it's a hard-hitter featuring support from Devildriver and, on select dates, metalcore outfit the Devil You Know and thrashers Act of Defiance.

Always excited, frontman Jamey Jasta commented on the upcoming record and tour, exclaiming, “New album and tour in 2016?! Let's do this! Our return to the States has been a long time coming and we could not be more excited! Fans have been asking for us to tour with Devildriver and Devil You Know for a long time and we’re pumped to have Act of Defiance on some shows as well. Get your tickets and we’ll see you in the pit!”

If you want to be seen in the pit, follow Jasta's advice and get your tickets on Friday, Jan. 15. VIP packages will begin two days earlier on Jan. 13 and information can be found here. The trek will start on May 13 in Cleveland, Ohio, head out to the West Coast and come back around to close it out with a hometown show for the Connecticut-based headliners in New Haven. Devildriver, who will have their new album, Trust No One, out the day the tour starts, will stay on for the duration of the run. The Devil You Know will open each show until June 4 and Act of Defiance will assume the opening slot the following day.

The Concrete Confessional is being recorded with longtime producer Zeuss and the band are in the process of wrapping up the sessions. Hatebreed's last album, The Divinity of Purpose saw the band reach their highest chart position yet, landing at No. 20 on the Billboard 200 album Chart
