HATEFIST has been a part of the backbone in the Seattle music community for over 10 years now. With their solid song structure and brutal stage presence it’s no wonder why HATEFIST has built up such a loyal fan base. The band has done shows, or has been involved with several national acts such as; Disturbed, Blood Simple, Nevermore, Himsa, Skinlab, Deicide, Vital Remains, Overkill, F5, Death Angel, Lamb of God, Unearth, Into the Moat, Solient Green, A Perfect Murder, and 36 Crazy Fists, just to name a few.
In 2005 HATEFIST released their second full-length album that was recorded, produced, and sold independently. Their CD release party, held at the nationally known club Studio Seven, recorded over 400 people in attendance. After several shows around Washington state the band sold over 1,000 copies of the self-titled album at shows alone. The album has had airtime on several radio stations including 99.9 KISW and 104.9 Funky Monkey.
HATEFIST was started with drummer Richie Sather and guitarist John Winters at the early age of twelve. Now in their early twenties, HATEFIST has the strongest line up to date with Chad Tenwick on vocals and Chuck Bar on bass. The future for HATEFIST looks promising as they prepare to record their third full length release and get ready to hit the road.
