When the Allstars Tour came to New York City's Gramercy Theater, metal fans began to work up a sweat early on as they spent a full day in the crammed venue. With a dozen bands playing and doors opening at 2 PM, it made for one of the lengthiest shows of the year.
Every Time I Die
During our coverage of the 2013 New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, we had the chance to catch up with Every Time I Die vocalist and lyrical mastermind Keith Buckley. Shortly after an incident where the band was forced to stop mid-performance at this year's JAMboree Festival due to gunfire, we got the inside scoop on what really happened that day, along with plenty more essential Every Time I Die knowledge.
Black Sabbath released 'God is Dead?' on April 18 as the band's first official single from the massively anticipated new album '13.' 'God is Dead?' was unleashed upon us all the day before the 2013 New England Metal and Hardcore Festival began, and to our surprise, most of the festival bands we interviewed hadn't actually heard the track yet. Thus, we busted out the iPod, attached some sweet Bose headphones and offered musicians from acts such as Anthrax, Hatebreed, Every Time I Die + others their first taste of '13.'
Hatebreed are really taking to the road in early 2013. The Connecticut hardcore outfit are about to finish a current string of dates with Shadows Fall, Dying Fetus and the Contortionist, but after only a small amount of time to relax along with a handful of international dates, Hatebreed will hit the U.S. highways once again beginning April 9.
