The Jagermeister Music Tour, Fall 2003, is shaping up to be a heavy metal fest of the highest caliber: Universal Records’ Hatebreed has just been confirmed as the main support act for Slayer.
Hatebreed has sharpened its teeth at Tattoo the Earth 2000; toured with Earth Crisis, Agnostic Front, Entombed, Soulfly, Motorhead, and Danzig; and inspired mosh pits that consumed thousands of fans at OZZfest 2001. Now the Connecticut-based band, with its decibel-defying mix of metal and hardcore is taking on the Jagermeister Music Tour, set to go off on October 9th.
Their latest album, Perseverance, is a testament to the band’s fight to be heard. Perseverance leads with the unflinching Slayer-inspired charge of “Proven” and leads to “I Will Be Heard,” the epic outcry of a generation looking for a voice. Says singer Jamey Jasta, “There are records that I can’t live without, and I wanted to make one of those records.”
The Jagermeister Music Tour, Fall 2003, follows the success of its Spring Tour, which featured Saliva and (hed) Planet Earth. The Tour played to sold out crowds throughout the country. Stay tuned for more on the upcoming Jagermeister Music Tour, Fall 2003. In the meantime, watch for Jagermeister at concerts and shows throughout the country featuring the over 130 bands sponsored by Jagermeister. And of course, look for Jagermeister at this year’s OZZfest. This marks the fourth year that Jagermeister has been a sponsor of hard rock’s most popular and successful spectacle.
