Tin Bridge Brewing Releases Special New England Metal and Hardcore Fest Beer
New England Metal & Hardcore Fest launched back in 1999 and took place at the famed Palladium in Worcester through 2018. It was often held over two or three days, with multiple stages and top-tier acts like Megadeth, Manowar, DragonForce, Opeth, Between the Buried & Me, Meshuggah, Killswitch Engage, Suicidal Tendencies, Anthrax, and more appearing through the years. It was always a "who's who" of the metal and hardcore scene and was a "not to be missed" event each Spring. It took a brief break after 2018 but it's back and better than ever. The event returns as a two-day extravaganza on September 15 and 16. Parkway Drive and Lamb of God will serve as headliners, with an incredible roster of bands gracing three stages — two outside stages and the main room. VIP tickets are available here. Also, E-Town Concrete and Swollen Teeth have been added to the lineup. As part of the celebration, local brewery Tin Ridge Brewing is releasing a festival-inspired beer.
"Tin Bridge Brewing is extremely excited to be partnering again with Mr. Scott Lee and the New England Metal & Hardcore fest this year," says owner (and Within the Ruins guitarist) Joe Cocchi. "We are huge fans, and have attended the festival for years. Now, we get to bring to you all an exclusive NEMHF 'New England IPA' to celebrate the return of this legendary festival. Pick up some cans from our taproom at the pre-release 'Metal Monday' party on September 11 or see you at the show." All details are in the graphic below. In addition to the killer lineup, there will be a museum and gallery celebrating the event's rich history and spotlighting the contributions of Killswitch Engage bassist Mike D'Antonio, who served as the event's graphic designer from 2001 through 2012, as well as the work of noted photographer Jeremy Saffer, who is the event's official shooter.
