Killswitch Engage, The Black Dahlia Murder playing New England Metal and Hardcore Festival

Posted by on January 26, 2016

Killswitch Engage let the cat out of the bag last week that they would be playing the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. That was good news to those that were wondering if there would even be a Fest this year, since there hadn’t been an announcement for it yet. However, the dates and initial lineup for the 18th incarnation of the annual Northeastern metal festival has been unveiled, and it’s a good one.

This year, the Worcester , MA festival will be pared down from three days to two, April 15th and 16th. While Friday’s headliner has yet to be announced, Killswitch will indeed be headlining on Saturday. The bands announced so far are a nice blend of bands, some of which, like The Black Dahlia Murder, Bury Your Dead, Earth Crisis and Unearth, have played the Fest a handful of times,with many more bands to be announced. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 29th at Noon on Ticketfly, the Palladium box office and FYE stores, with tickets costing $30 on Friday, $35 on Saturday and $59 for a two day pass. Metal Insider is a proud sponsor, and we’ll have two-day passes to give away. Here’s who’s been announced so far:



Bury Your Dead
The Black Dahlia Murder
