Hatebreed have signed on to open Megadeth and Lamb of God’s co-headlining Metal Tour of The Year, taking over for In Flames. In Flames had to drop out due to issues regarding international visas. They issued the following statement:

“In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we had to make the difficult decision to not join the Metal Tour of The Year. We were looking forward to playing for you all and this was an unbelievably hard choice to make. Thank you for understanding and your support as we all get through this unprecedented time. We have a lot of things in the works for 2022 – more on that shortly. Stay safe & we’ll see you on the road again soon!
