As previously mentioned, in honor of Ensign bassist Nate Gluck, who's sadly battling cancer, a bunch of NY/NJ hardcore bands (and one from Canada) are coming together for NateFest. When we last spoke, the venue and ticket info was TBA, but it's since been announced that it will happen at Howell, NJ's GameChangerWorld on March 21 & 22. Tickets go on sale at 3 PM on Monday (1/26).
In case you missed it, the lineup includes Sick of It All, Kill Your Idols, Indecision, Killing Time, Endeavor, Purpose, Grade, Ensign, None More Black, NORA, For The Love Of, Shai Hulud, Mouthpiece, Strength 691, Bigwig, 45 Revolutions (mems Judge, Gorilla Biscuits, CIV), Old Wounds, Stag Party and more TBA.
Meanwhile you can also catch Old Wounds in NYC for free this weekend when they open for long-running metalcore band Sworn Enemy at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on Saturday (1/24). Also on that bill is 96, Ides and Dead Tricks. That show is before Sworn Enemy hit the road with Biohazard, which includes another show with Old Wounds: NJ's Asbury Lanes on April 1. Tickets for that show are on sale now. Sworn Enemy also have a show at Queens venue Blackhorn 51 and a Long Island stop on the Biohazard tour. All dates are listed below.
Old Wounds also have a tour supporting Cult Leader (aka 3/4 of Gaza). They're not on the NYC-area dates though (Purge is), which happen March 11 at Uncle Slevs in Montclair, NJ and March 12 at Amityville Music Hall on Long Island. Tickets for the Amityville show are on sale now. No advance tix for Montclair at the moment.
