Rock on the Range Live at Mapfre Stadium

What began at Crew Stadium in 2007 as a one day festival with 14 bands has evolved into a three-day festival with around 60 bands each year. Since its humble beginnings of Rock on the Range, it has sold out. In 2007, the fest sold out at only 30,000 tickets compared to this year’s 140,000 tickets. ROTR has become the “mecca” of rock fests on the east coast. Rockers AKA “Rangers” migrate by the thousands to Mapfre Stadium in Ohio from across the globe to attend. A spiritual pilgrimage of sorts for die-hard rock fans perhaps? I can only speak for myself, but it is an amazing experience to embrace the many cultures.

Brightwell is streaming their music video for “Scripts,” off their debut EP Alpha, out via Outerloop Records, here.

Formed of friends after parting ways with their former bands Nick Barham, Arvin Sarathy (Drummer), Tanner Manoir (singer/bassist) and Vaughn Anthony (guitar) came together despite the distance between them with members in Michigan, Illinois, and Texas.

Motionless In White Added As Sunday Headliner For New England Metal and Hardcore Festival XVII

nemhfmiwpressrelease_3

New England Metal And Hardcore Festival has announced Motionless In White as the Sunday headliner to the seventeenth edition of the fest. The event is held at The Palladium in Worcester, MA on April 17, 18 and 19, 2015.

Vocalist Chris Cerulli states, “One of my favorite DVD’s in my collection has always been the 2003 New England Metal and Hardcore Fest DVD. Back then the metal and hardcore world was so stacked with a seemingly endless roster of legendary bands. Needless to say, it’s an incredibly huge honor to be headlining a day on this festival twelve years later after the first time I saw that DVD and after all these years how the fest has proven itself to be an unstoppable force. We hope to add in making this another successful year representing metal and hardcore in New England.”
