Initial Lineup for 2016 New England Metal and Hardcore Fest Announced


Earlier this week Killswitch Engage announced their involvement with this year’s edition of the long-running New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, which fans had been speculating might not take place this year. KsE’s posts on the subject were quickly erased from the Internet, suggesting they’d let the cat of the bag a bit early and that an official announcement was forthcoming.

Welp, here it is: NEMHF’s official website has announced the fest’s EIGHTEENTH edition, set to take place on April 15th and 16th at the Palladium in Worcester, MA, same place as usual. The lineup so far, which in addition to Killswitch Engage headlining one night also includes The Black Dahlia Murder the other night, with a TBA headliner apparently bigger than them:

Friday, April 15th:

Headliner TBA
Bury Your Dead
The Black Dahlia Murder
On Broken Wings
Great American Ghost

Saturday, April 16th:

Killswitch Engage
Memphis May Fire
36 Crazyfists
Earth Crisis
Culture Killer
Hollow Earth

Presumably many more bands will be announced soon, with NEMHF typically being a two-stage affair. Solid start! Stay tuned.
