As mentioned, Louisville's stacked hardcore festival LDB Fest is returning and it's almost here (2/6-2/8). The lineup includes Higher Power (whose great new album is out today), Bitter End, Inclination, Bent Life, Sanction, SeeYouSpaceCowboy, Terror, Fiddlehead, Cruel Hand, Bracewar, Magnitude, Judiciary, Facewreck, Hangman, Treason, Foreign Hands, Fuming Mouth, Wristmeetrazor, Life's Question, Dare, Drain, Dead Heat, One Step Closer, Hands of God, and more, and tickets are still available.

A bunch of those bands are also touring together around that fest, like Higher Power/Life's Question, Sanction/SeeYouSpaceCowboy, and Wristmeetrazor/Foreign Hands.

The Wristmeetrazor/Foreign Hands tour begins in Upton, MA on 1/31 and also hits New Haven, Long Island, Philly, and more. All dates are listed below.

It's been just over exactly a year since Wristmeetrazor released their great screamo/metalcore-blending Misery Never Forgets on Prosthetic, and they more recently followed that album with the "Take Your Shot, Funboy" single and a Sisters of Mercy cover. Meanwhile, the more straightup metalcore Foreign Hands released their killer split with Cast In Blood last fall. If you haven't heard any of these yet, check them all out below.

Foreign Hands will also be on part of that Sanction/SeeYouSpaceCowboy tour (which is also with Vamachara and Typecaste, the latter of whom announced a new EP this week), including the shows in Buffalo, Albany, Worcester, Philly, and Long Island. Those dates are listed below too. That tour also includes runs with Adrenaline (Brooklyn included), Dying Wish, and Crow Killer.

In related news, today Calgary's Wild Rose Hardcore Festival was announced for April 24-26 with Madball, Knocked Loose, Never Ending Game, Judiciary, Wristmeetrazor, Drain, Regional Justice Center, and more (tickets). Full lineup below.
