Jamey Jasta (born James Vincent Shanahan; August 7, 1977)[1] is an American singer and songwriter from New Haven, Connecticut. He is best known as the lead vocalist of metalcore band Hatebreed and sludge metal band Kingdom of Sorrow. Jasta also fronts metalcore band Icepick. Prior to Hatebreed, Jasta fronted the hardcore band Jasta 14.

Jasta owns Stillborn Records, a hardcore and metal-based record label from West Haven, and "rock themed apparel" line called Hatewear.[2]

Jasta was the host for MTV's Headbanger's Ball from 2003–2007.

Jasta created the music for "Stat of the Day" for the nationally syndicated radio and TV talk show, The Dan Patrick Show. Jasta appeared on air with Dan Patrick on January 25, 2013 discussing the making of the song.

He currently[when?] refrains from smoking, drinking, and doing drugs but does not affiliate himself with the straight edge subculture.[3]

Jasta's debut solo album, Jasta, was released on July 26, 2011, through eOne Music.[4] In Europe, the album was released via Century Media Records.[4] AllMusic scored the album 4 out of 5 stars,[5] while Blabbermouth gave it 6.5 out of 10 stars.[6]

Jasta was also one of the hosts in the Chi Cheng's fundraiser song along with his band guitarist Wayne Lozinack. The song was produced by Korn bassist Fieldy to help to contribute to the Cheng Family.
