Internal Bleeding have been a fixture on the metal scene since 1991 when they emerged as innovators of the slam metal subgenre. Despite their 20-year history, the band's appearance at Live Free or Get Hurt Fest 1.5 marks the very first time Internal Bleeding will play live for fans in New Hampshire.
Co-headliners Fit For An Autopsy are currently on tour with THE ACACIA STRAIN. Their brutal deathcore sound and punishing live performances have branded them as an up-and-coming death metal force to be reckoned with.
Fit For An Autopsy's Nate Johnson will be pulling double-duty that night, fronting his other band Buckhunter for the Hurt Fest 1.5 audience. A metal supergroup comprised of members of a variety of local New England bands, Buckhunter assembles once a year to put on one of the heaviest, most memorable live shows today infused with a dark sense of humor.
Additional bands scheduled to perform include: CONFORZA, PATHOGENIC, SWARM OF EYES, FLOOD THIS EARTH, TEETH, RUMORS OF BETRAYAL, BLACK BEAR, ZOMBIE FIGHTER, THE ATLAS COLLAPSE, and WRETCHED ABOMINATION.
The event is sponsored by counterculture apparel designers HURT REYNOLDS CLOTHING COMPANY and liquor giant JAGERMEISTER. Independent music retailer WICKED MUSIC and Manchester, NH tattoo parlor TATTOO ANGUS are also co-sponsoring the event. Concert-
Live Free Or Get Hurt Fest 1.5 will be held October 20 at The Junkyard (522 Amherst St.) in Nashua, NH. Showtime is 3 P.M. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $12 from the bands or at the venue on the day of the show for $15.
