Official press release:

MassConcerts proudly presents the first details for New England Metal and Hardcore Festival 2013, today confirming the dates and preliminary list of bands for this year's occurrence of the long-running annual event.

For the 2013 installment, the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival will once again overthrow the historic venue, The Palladium, in Worcester, Massachusetts, this year marking the 15th anniversary of the iconic weekend-long gathering! The festivities will commence with a pre-party on April 18th, 2013 and the three official days of the fest following on the 19th, 20th, and 21st.

Commented the festival's founder Scott Lee of MassConcerts: "I am excited with how far we have come and am ecstatic for this to be on our 15th year! It has been a long, interesting journey. We always try to make it a memorable event and we really hope you all enjoy the festival this year."

With more than forty acts from all realms of the extreme music world already set to storm the two stages of New England Metal & Hardcore Festival XV -- and with many more to be announced in the coming weeks -- the confirmed headliners for the event will include Hatebreed, Opeth and Suicidal Tendencies, as well as legendary thrash titans Anthrax performing their Among The Living album in its entirety, as part of their headlining spot on the Metal Alliance Tour.
