Seattle metallers NEVERMORE have announced that they will not be unable to perform at this year's New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, set to take place the weekend of April 25-27 at the Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts. According to guitarist Jeff Loomis, the band has been unable to find a suitable replacement for guitarist Chris Broderick — who recently left NEVERMORE's touring lineup to join MEGADETH — and does not wish to perform as a four-piece. Loomis states, "We have tried to work as a four-piece band, but were unable to reach the real NEVERMORE sound, especially in a live setting, which is what our fans could expect from us. We really feel sorry about this, as we know that our fans were waiting to see us at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. We hope to see you all soon."

This year will mark the tenth anniversary of the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, the largest and most successful metal festival in the United States.

Sounds like they are perfectionists. I love this band, but, yeah, play the shows. If you love Nevermore - you will not care - which I do.
