The festival announcements keep coming thick and fast and the always punishing Impericon Festival are the latest to reveal some new bands for their 2016 installment.

After making a brief return to the UK in 2014, the news that Despised Icon will once again take to the stage at Impericon Fest in 2016 will please an awful lot of people. So too will the news that they will be joined by UK metalcore bruisers Heart Of A Coward, who’s star has been rising ever faster over the last twelve months thanks to brilliant performances at Download and also their new album Deliverance.

Despised Icon & Heart Of A Coward will be joined by Germany electronic metal opinion dividers Eskimo Callboy, and Aussie hardcore merchants Hellions. Having previously made fans out of Northlane when the two bands toured together on home turf, Northlane and Hellions will once again unite, this time halfway round the world at the UK Impericon Festivals in London and Manchester.

The four new bands will join headliners Hatebreed, the aforementioned Northlane, Chelsea Grin, Emmure, Blessthefall and Hundreth as bands currently confirmed to play the 2016 UK Impericon Festivals, taking place in Manchester and London around the time of the early May bank holiday weekend.
