New England Metal and Hardcore Festival Add Third Stage
The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will introduce an additional stage this year dedicated to up and coming bands.
The third stage, sponsored by Deathcote Records, will be located at Chasers Nightclub, located behind the Palladium on the corner of Martin Luther King and Commercial streets. The main festival will be taking place at the Palladium.
"There are so many great bands and not enough time to get all of them on during the course of two days," said festival co-organizer Sott Lee. "Adding a third stage is a great way for us to showcase some of the developing bands and it's a terrific opportunity for these bands to play alongside some of today's top metal and hardcore bands."
The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival will take place on Friday, April 17 and Saturday, April 18, with the Atticus pre-party on Thursday, April 16. This year's event is presented by Randall Amplifiers, Washburn Guitars and Eden Electronics. Metal Blade Records will present the main stage. Prosthetic Records will present the second stage.
