Inquisition at Saint Vitus, 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
We've already mentioned that the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will return in 2014 from April 17-19 at the Worcester Palladium. The festival has added some notable (and varied) bands to the lineup: 1349, Battlecross, Black Crown Initiate, Carnifex, Erra, Fallujah, Goatwhore, I Declare War, Inquisition, Rivers of Nihil, Sworn In, Broken Hope and The Acacia Strain. It's pretty hard to imagine super-serious black metal bands like Inquisition and 1349 sharing the stage with derpy deathcore like The Acacia Strain, but that's the age we live in. The backstage conversations between those bands will probably be golden.
In related news, LA hardcore outfit Alpha & Omega (who were already on the bill) will be touring on their way to the festival starting in March, along with (various combinations of) Cruel Hand, Alpha & Omega, Naysayer, Bent Life, Barrier, Malfunction and Will To Die. There's no NYC date, but the tour will hit Long Island on 4/15 at the Even Flow Bar & Grill (in Bay Shore). Tickets are are on sale.
Check out the full run of Alpha & Omega dates and the full lineup for NEMHF to date below.

The New England Metal & Hardcore Fest is returning to the Worcester Palladium from April 17 - 19, 2014 in Worcester, MA, and the initial lineup was recently announced. It includes Nails, Nile, Counterparts, All Out War, Cruel Hand, Harms Way, Suburban Scum, Naysayer, Reign Supreme, Fit For An Autopsy, Alpha & Omega, Slapshot and more. Tickets (3-day passes and individual day tickets) are on sale now. Full lineup below.
For long-running and ever-verbose American death metal institution Nile, that fest is part of their recently-announced 2014 North American tour. The tour will hit NYC at Stage 48 on April 20 (4/20) ((har har)). Tickets for that show go on sale December 14 at 10 AM. The band will play a selection of material from across their seven-album catalog, and support will be comprised of "three of the best local bands in every market." There's lots of good acts to choose from around here, so hopefully the openers won't be selected on the basis of their willingness to cooperate with pay-to-play ticketing schemes.
Check out the list of all dates and stream a tune from their 2012 album, At the Gates of Sethu, along with the initial New England Metal & Hardcore Fest lineup, below...
Negative Approach at Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by BBG)
This is Hardcore returns to Philadelphia, PA for four days in August at Union Transfer (on 8/9) and Electric Factory (8/10 - 8/12). Both shows will have no barricades for you headwalkers/divers and in the case of Electric Factory, the venue will actually construct a stage in front of their usual stage (!) to get around the existing barricade. Now thats dedication/brutality.
As for the lineup, as usual the cast of hooligans gracing the stages of TIHC are a cast of notables, including Cro-Mags, Negative Approach, Gorilla Biscuits, Breakdown, Blacklisted, Killing Time, Nails, Ringworm, Gehenna and many many more. Full lineup is below and tickets go on sale on May 17th at noon.
Power Trip is part of said lineup, and reminder, the band will hit Acheron on May 15th as part of a string of East Coast dates. All tour dates are below.

Agnostic Front @ Santos Party House
Agnostic Front are currently out on tour with Mongoloids in support of a somewhat new record...
"My Life My Way was released on March 22, 2011. The album features 13 new powerful and anthemic songs laid down by Erik Rutan (MADBALL, GOATWHORE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, etc.) at his Mana Recording Studio in Tampa, FL under the watchful guide of producer Freddy Cricien of MADBALL. The record was mastered by Alan Douches (NILE, MASTODON, etc.)."The tour hit Santos Party House in NYC on 11/4. Some pictures are in this post. More them with all remaining dates below.
Fellow DMS crew band H2O also has a new record coming out, but not of their own songs. As their own press release reads...
"H2O has been a mainstay in hardcore and punk since their inception back in 1995 and have had many influences along the way. The band is thrilled to pay homage to those influential artists by covering their songs on the forthcoming album, Don't Forget Your Roots, which will be available November 15th from Bridge Nine Records.No Agnostic Front on the tribute album, but there is Madball, Descendents, Bad Brains and many more. The full tracklist, all tour dates, and more Agnostic Front show pictures, below...
Additionally, H2O will be playing the Gramercy Theater on November 19th [with Killing Time], with a special set consisting of cover songs and originals- both new and old. This show will be a celebration of H2O's covers album available just three days prior, as well as a re-release of their self-titled album, available on LP also on November 15th. Vocalist Toby Morse had this to say: "NYC is H2O's roots - where we started - and couldn't think of a more perfect place to release our covers album and the re-issue of our first record. We'll be playing old songs, new songs and cover songs for our fans there! They'll also be able to pick up copies of our self-titled album on vinyl - Bridge Nine is re-pressing that and we couldn't be more excited. It was originally released back in 1996 and has been out of print for a long, long time. Also Don't Forget Your Roots will be available as well!" He continued, "Our covers album is a big personal accomplishment for us - being able to pay homage to the bands that have influenced us so much since we got into punk rock and helped get us where we are today is an amazing thing. We think we've done them justice!"
