The latest round of additions to the continually-expanding lineup for 2014's installment of the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival has been disclosed, including Massachusetts' own '90s hardcore punk act, Sam Black Church.
Confirmed as one of the main headliners of the event's third night, Saturday, April 19th, Sam Black Church's set at NEMHF 2014 will mark only the third performance since the group initially disbanded at the turn of the century, and first in Central Massachusetts since the late '90s.
Stated the band upon being asked to take part in the massive event this Spring: "It is amazing what the man we used to know as Ogre has done with the New England Metalfest! We are fucking excited to be a part of it once again!"
The organizers of the fest comment: "Formed in Boston, in June of 1988 by Jesse "Jet" Crandall (vocals), Ben Crandall (guitar), Richard G. Lewis (bass), and J.R. Roach (drums), Sam Black Church was known for their energetic live performances, playing a frenetic blend of hardcore, metal, and thrash. Over the years sharing bills with bands as diverse as Bad Brains, Clutch, Motörhead, Cro-Mags, Fear, and Helmet, they were one of the most popular hardcore bands in the Northeast United States during the 1990s. After releasing three full-lengths on Taang! Records, they left to join Wonderdrug where they remained until they retired in 2000 after releasing a total of seven albums. Since disbanding, Sam Black Church reunited for a sold-out show on September 22, 2007, at The Roxy in Boston, and played a another sold-out performance at Hometown Throwdown #16 with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at House of Blues in Boston on December 29th, 2013. A documentary of their career by Duncan Wilder Johnson entitled Leave Behind a Groove in the Earth is scheduled for release in 2014."
Also now confirmed to invade this year's festival are Oceano, Scars of Tomorrow, The Last Ten Seconds of Life, InDirections, and Julius Seizure on Thursday, April 17th, and Reflections on Friday, April 18th. The setup for Saturday, April 19th has also been lengthened with Texas In July, Obey The Brave and the aforementioned Sam Black Church performance.

Facedown Records has checked in with the following statement about the upcoming Facedown Festival:
"We are very excited to announce that Facedown Fest 2013 will take place on April 12 & 13 at the Stronghold in Chino, CA. The entire active Facedown roster will be playing the event and tickets are just $10 each night! We also have a limited amount of deluxe ticket packages available which include a limited edition screen printed poster, Facedown Fest 2013 root beer, Facedown Fest T-Shirt, Facedown backpack, sunglasses and more!"
Facedown founder Jason Dunn had the following to say about this year’s fest: “Facedown Fest began in 2000 at an amazing venue called the Showcase Theatre. Over the years the fest grew and unfortunately the Showcase theatre had to shut its doors. I loved the energy of those early years from both the bands and the crowd and I am excited to have that again as Facedown Fest returns to a more intimate venue. The people at the Stronghold have been so supportive of our bands and label over the years so it just made sense to do this there. Plus, with the lower overhead we can offer $10 tickets to the people who are responsible for keeping Facedown alive for all of these years. This is one way for us to say thanks and give back to our incredible Family of supporters.”
Facedown Records has checked in with the following announcement about releasing the debut Gideon album as a limited edition vinyl:
