Victory recording artists Emmure will join the already-stacked lineup of the 14th Annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival on Sunday, April 22. 
"We couldn't be more excited and grateful to be a part of this year's NEMHF," said vocalist Frankie Palmeri. "Some of my favorite bands are playing and I think this is the best line up it's had in years."
The Queens, N.Y., based band encompasses all that the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival aims to represent, offering up an emotionally unhinged blend of blistering hardcore and punishing thrash metal.

Emmure has four albums to their credit: 2007's Goodbye To The Gallows, 2008's Respect Issue, 2009's Felony (2009), and Speaker of the Dead, the quintet's latest release.

Emmure will join a lineup of more than 75 bands, from Billboard-charting artists and festival veterans to new acts and future stars of the genre, as the 14th Annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival takes over the Palladium in Worcester, Mass., the weekend of April 20 through April 22.

A camera crew will be on hand this year to document the show for an upcoming film focusing on the history of the festival, behind the scenes footage and the development of the show. The documentary will be produced by Manny Santiago from Crimson Media and sponsored by Shook Clothing.
