Another groundbreaking news for all guitar worshippers - Exit Festival welcomes, on Saturday, July 14, two bands certain to satisfy all the die-hard Hardcore fans’ needs: Suicidal Tendencies and Hatebreed!
Main Stage is proud to host one of the most popular American Hardcore acts of all time, Suicidal Tendencies. The leaders of the Skate Punk and Crossover Thrash began their journey in 1982 when they earned the title “the biggest punks“. By facing many difficulties over the years, including banning of their performances in Los Angeles because of their fans’ connection to violence, Suicidal Tendencies have become a symbol of an amazing festival gig, led by the overly energetic frontman Mike Muir who most rightfully earned the nickname “Cyco Miko“.
During their long-spanning career they have released eight studio albums. The ninth is on its way, scheduled for release this year. The band, according to their words “already have three new albums written; the only thing left is to set the date of their release“. Suicidal Tendencies have already greeted Exit’s audience a few years ago, and regardless of the size of the stage they played on, every single person jumped to their music, from the back row to the frontmost people – the security!
We are also proud to announce one of the best hardcore acts in the world, the same evening at the festival - Connecticut’s Hatebreed! Their debut album, Satisfaction is the Death of Desire released in 1997 under Victory Records was the best-selling debut album the label has seen. A safe haven for the most popular heavy underground genre – groove metal, the label saw another genre brilliantly flourishing in their squad, since the band’s music was not that similar to other bands on the label. Hatebreed have been reshaping their music constantly, from hardcore punk to the influences of modern metalcore, with the sole help of touring with the likes of Slayer, Deftones and Napalm Death. This reshaping has helped the band tour with Slayer, Slipknot and System of a Down only after their fourth studio album, and to release six in total. What they guarantee is a good concert on July 14 at Exit’s Fusion Stage, with a load of hits from their older, as well as more recent albums, all the way to the latest one, symbolically named Hatebreed.
