More Bands Announced For NEM&HF 2013

The latest round of bands confirmed to storm the stage at New England Metal and Hardcore Festival XV has today been announced. The fresh additions to the brutal three-day event include Alleageon, Alpha & Omega, Born Low, MurderDeathKill and Dark Sermon, as well as Baltimore hardcore squad Trapped Under Ice and New Jersey’s renowned explosive tech metal practitioners The Dillinger Escape Plan.

A tour based around the fest has also been created by MassConcerts, something they’ve done for the past four years. Dubbed Mission Quest to Metal Fest, the trek was formed in order to help a few of the bands get to and from NEMHF this year. This year the tour unifies Expire, Alpha & Omega, Power Trip, Twitching Tongues, and Antagonist A.D. on a ten-date assault leading up to their individual performances at the festival.

Stated promoter Scott Lee on the formation of this built-in tour: “We are really proud of this year’s lineup, and to bring these bands together leading up to it. The tour includes Expire who played last year, California powerhouse Alpha & Omega, Power Trip who is an up-and-coming hardcore band from Texas, and Twitching Tongues. We're also very excited to have Antagonist A.D. from New Zealand; they are the band coming from the farthest away for the fest. Pretty happy to have them; we love putting foreign bands on the bill!” More...

Antagonist A.D. Streaming New Song

Antagonist A.D. has premiered the song "Violence" online from the upcoming album "Nothing From No One." Check out the song in the player below. "Nothing From No One" is set to hit stores on July 3rd through Mediaskare Records.

“The new album steps in a more personal direction than our previous releases,” stated vocalist Sam Crocker. “There are still the usual themes you can expect from Antagonist A.D. with songs about animal rights, consumerism & apathy, but where it differs is dealing with anxiety, depression – feelings of alienation. I think for me, being from a tiny town on a small isolated island at bottom of the world I really started to feel that isolation – the lyrics have been a lot more therapeutic than anything I have written before.”
