Hatebreed add new guitarist
Hatebreed have announced the addition of guitarist Frank "3 Gun" Novinec to their line-up. Novinec, a Cleveland native, has previously played with Terror, Ringworm, and Integrity. According to frontman Jamey Jasta, "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 and Beattie started this band as a 5 piece and feel like it's an integral part of our sound and vision." Meanwhile, Hatebreed's Sean Martin had the following to say: "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."
