New England Metal and Hardcore Fest 2024 Will See The Comeback for Year of The Knife on Stage

New England Metal & Hardcore Fest 2024 has added the comeback of Year of The Knife, in their first live performance since their horrific and life threatening van accident in June 2023. The band released their amazing album No Love Lost via Pure Noise Records last year. The two-day extravaganza will take place on September 21 and 22 at the Palladium. NEM&HCF faves Killswitch Engage will be playing a special 25th anniversary show and will headline the first night. Slaughter to Prevail will headline the second night. 



The band shared:

“We’re highly anticipating our debut at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. It’s a great first step for what will be total global domination. We’re thankful for the fest and our fans. We’ll be sure to make this show special.”


Check out our previous interview with Scott Lee about the 2023 return of the festival:


“I think this lineup is one of the top five best in the festival’s history,” says Scott Lee, founder of the festival. “It will appeal to all fans of all genres of extreme music.”

“The place where it all began for us was The Worcester Palladium our first show and our first Metal Festival,” says KsE singer Jesse Leach. “Here we are, 25 years later, returning to the same venue to perform a unique set to celebrate our legacy as a band  We are honored and excited to be a part of this legendary festival once again. 25 years of Killswitch Engage!”
