Defeater part ways with guitarist Jay Maas

Bummer of a story for fans of Massachusetts-based hardcore five-piece Defeater. Seems they’re now going to be a Massachusetts-based four-piece, as they recently announced that they’ve parted ways with guitarist Jay Maas (pictured above at right). Here’s the band’s brief statement:

Over the weekend it was decided to move forward as a band without the participation of Jay Maas due to personal & creative differences. All scheduled Defeater shows and tours will go on as planned and we wish Jay luck in his future endeavors. Thank you

New Video: Defeater – “Divination”

Another new music video from the fellas in Massachusetts hardcore five-piece Defeater. It’s for a song called “Divination,” and you can check it out below.

The video for “Divination” picks up in the immediate aftermath of the events from the band’s last non-performance-based video, “Spared In Hell.” In case you forget what that video is all about, it’s also posted below, underneath the “Divination” video. Pretty intense storytelling, but we’d expect nothing less from the Defeater gang.

“Divination” appears on Defeater’s latest album, “Abandoned,” which was released August 28th via the band’s new label home, Epitaph Records. It serves as the follow-up (in more ways than one) to their last Bridge Nine Records full-length, “Letters Home.”



Defeater stream new album, “Abandoned”

Masachusetts hardcore act, Defeater, have just started streaming their latest album, “Abandoned”. The eleven peice collection is a concept album, of sorts, detailing an unknown individual’s struggle to make sense of a higher power after his life has been wracked with tragedy. Interestingly, this exploration into damnation and redemption holds a special importance to its composers, as the album was written while songwriter Derek Archambault was wracked in the recovery of a major hip surgery. Check it out below.

“Abandoned” is set to be released on August 24th, via Epitaph Records, and you can pre-order it here. Also, check below for details on the band’s upcoming tour below.



New Music Video: Defeater – “Unanswered”

Massachusetts-based hardcore band Defeater have debuted the second video for a track from their upcoming album, Abandoned. The song is called “Unanswered,” and the video is a live compilation piece. In some ways, it’s less intense than their first Abandoned video, “Spared In Hell,” and yet, because of the nature of their live performances, it’s infinitely more intense in some ways. Check it out below.

Abandoned is due out August 28th via Defeater’s new label home, Epitaph Records. It marks the follow up to their 2013 Bridge Nine Records finale, Letters Home.
