New Jersey Blackened Death Metallers HATH will hit the road this spring as part of the "Fragmented Perception Tour" with tech-death band COGNITIVE and death/math mindbenders CRYPTODIRA.
Headliners COGNITIVE said this about the tour, "After taking some time off to write our new record, we wanted to scratch the itch of getting back on the road. We focused hard on our new songs and we're glad we did. It's been a while since we did a headliner, so we decided to make it special and do a diverse lineup of bands. We have been a fan of Cryptodira for a long time, and their brand of death and math metal is inspiring to say the least. We took Hath out last January prior to them releasing their critically acclaimed album "Of Rot And Ruin," so we're thrilled to bring them out now that everyone knows who they are. We're excited to hit some new cities, and just thankful to be on the road again. Keep an eye out for us being in a town near you!"

Hath started in 2014 as a project between Frank Albanese and AJ Viana. Greg Nottis joined on bass during the writing of their first EP Hive, which released in 2015 to generally high praise.
In early 2017 Hath began recording their first full-length record. 2018 saw a lot of changes for the band. Hath signed a deal with Willowtip Records, added guitarist Peter Brown to the band, and finished Of Rot and Ruin.
