Philly's Cop Problem and Milwaukee's Enabler have a lot in common. Both bands blend metal, hardcore, and grind; both bands released fierce EPs last year. And now they've got another shared characteristic: they'll be on tour together in April. The two bands are meeting up at the New England Metal and Hardcore Fest on 4/17 and playing a run of shows down the US East Coast, including an NYC stop at Grand Victory on 4/19. (Tix here.) These are high-energy bands; they should be fun to watch in such a small space.

Enabler have a ton of other North American dates lined up both before and after the Cop Problem run, too. Check them all out, as well as both bands' 2013 EPs, below...
