Laut ihrer Homepage haben HATEBREED wieder einen zweiten Gitarristen. Der neue Mann ist kein unbekannter. Es wurde Frank Novinec (Ex-TERROR/RINGWORM) verpflichtet. Hier die Statements der Bandmitglieder:
"Hey everyone! Jamey here, we have a pretty big announcement to make. We've decided to become a five piece again. Mainly because of the new album having a lot of parts that involve second guitar but also because me & Beattie started this band as a 5 piece and feel like it's an integral part of our sound and vision. We'd like to welcome Cleveland native, Hardcore legend and all around great guy Frank "3 Gun" Novinec to the band. Some of you may know him from his past bands Ringworm and Integrity and more recently, Terror. He's one of my oldest best friends, so he fits in perfect! We'll be making another big announcement in a day or two so stay tuned! We are in the studio now making the best album of our career. Be ready to hear the most charged, in your face, crushing Hatebreed album ever. It's pure adrenaline. Here's what the fellas had to say about Frank joining."
"I'm psyched to be playing with this guy. I've known him for several years,
playing in bands and being at shows, etc. He brings another dynamic to the fold that can only make us a tighter, heavier and stronger element in the metal/hardcore scene. All that......plus, now I have a new drinking partner. Keep It Metal!!!" - Matt Byrne
"Frank has always played in bands that have inspired me throughout the years and the decision to ask Frank to play with us was a no brainer! I look forward to sharing the stage with this maniac! Now we'll be able to play our songs with 2 guitarists the way they were written! I hope the world is ready for it!" - Beattie
"Frank "3 Gun" Novinec has been an influential guitar player in the hardcore scene since the release of "The Promise," by Ringworm in 1993. His guitar playing/writing with Ringworm, as well as everything he did with Integrity helped to define the Cleveland sound. That sound had a direct impact on me as a guitar player, and as a fan, it got me through a lot of hard times and helped to define my playing today. I was lucky enough to meet 3 Gun while we were on tour with Motorhead, and playing a show in Cleveland. Since then, He's become one of my best friends, and it will be an honor to be sharing the stage with him.
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" - Sean Martin
