All That Remains Join Headliners of 2012 New England Metal and Hardcore Festival
The 14th annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival is set to slay the Palladium in Worcester, Mass. on April 20-22, and All That Remains have been announced as the final headliner.
All That Remains will headline on Saturday joining previously announced headliners the Black Dahlia Murder on Friday night and Killswitch Engage on Sunday night.
No word yet on who will be singing for Killswitch Engage, following the recent departure of Howard Jones. Before you go thinking it might be Phil Labonte from All That Remains, he already checked in on Facebook saying he would not be singing for KSE on tour; but does that rule out a one off show, as well? Hmmm.
Massachusetts natives All That Remains also headlined NEMHF in 2009, making them return favorites to the Fest. The band recently wrapped up a tour in December and has returned home to start writing new material for their next record so the NEMHF performance promises to be one of their first of the new year.
NEMHF is a who’s who of metal boasting one of the meatiest metal lineups in the nation, it has become the largest and subsequently most successful metal festival in the US providing a platform for up and coming metal acts as well as well established favorites who return year after year.
