Now is the time to celebrate 30 years of pure destruction and brutality. The hardcore legends Hatebreed will be continuing their 30th anniversary celebrations in 2024 with the announcement of a very special hometown show, called The March Metal Matinee. After kicking it off with two sold-out shows at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, New York, and four chaotic, consecutive sold-out shows at Amityville Music Hall in Long Island, New York, the ruthless quintet are now taking their celebrations to their hometown state of Connecticut.

The memorable event will take place at the Toyota Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, Connecticut on March 17 and will showcase two stages. The event will feature an all-star lineup including 100 Demons, Shadow Of Intent, With Honor, Sworn Enemy, Dead By Wednesday, Eyes Of The Living, Demonscar, and last but not least, making their return to Connecticut after 10 years, the metalcore icons Shadows Fall. 30 years and Shadows Fall's return will not be the only thing the band is honoring, this specific date is also guitarist Wayne Lozinak’s 50th Birthday.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here

This will be a special one. Our biggest home state show ever, with a ton of awesome bands and its [guitarist] Wayne's 50th birthday! This is a throwback to the old hardcore/metal matinees we used to play in the mid '90s. It will be a yearly event going forward as we'll also be bringing back the March Metal Meltdown Festival to NJ in 2025. Can't wait to see everyone there!". - Jamey Jasta

"30 Years! What a milestone and nothing but gratitude for the fans all over the world for making it possible. We look forward to seeing you all in 2024. Most importantly in CT!"- guitarist Frank Novinec

For 30 years, Hatebreed has brought nothing but sheer and utter destruction. With eight albums that have sold over 1.5 million copies in North America alone and have gathered over 75 million streams worldwide, ruthless breakdowns and aggressive vocals, sold-out shows across the globes, and appearances at well-renowned festivals such as Graspop, Ozzfest, Warped Tour, and even Download Festival, Hatebreed has cemented themselves as one of the most influential and most dominating bands in the Hardcore scene. If you ask any hardcore or metalcore band today what bands have influenced them the most, you can definitely expect them to list Hatebreed as inspiration.

Get your friends together, grab your tickets, take a road trip, and come out of mosh retirement to celebrate this incredible milestone in not only Hatebreed’s career but in Hardcore history as well.
