“Now in it's 7th year we are proud to bring you yet again another killer INSD tour. We're also thrilled to announce one of our most exciting line-ups yet. Never Say Die! always sets the benchmark for alternative package tours in Europe” - Avocado Booking’s Ivonne Davies Kreye

Returning to the Impericon Never Say Die! Tour and this time headlining, Connecticut based mosh-core merchants Emmure are one of the genre’s most exciting modern bands. Formed in 2003, the Never Say Die! Veterans will be showcasing music from their most recent Victory Records release ‘Slave To The Game’. Emmure embrace the ideology that you either have to kill or be killed and have grown stronger as a result, channeling their collective angst to create a propulsive blend of unabashed aggression and intensity that the youth across the world embrace.

Frank Palmeri: “Myself , Jesse , Mike , Mark C and Mark D are all pleased to tell you that we are going to be headlining this years Never Say Die! tour. The line up is superb so do not miss one of the biggest and best tours happening this year! We can't wait to see all our incredible European fans again as we bring down the house in pure EMMURE fashion.”

Jesse: “Once again we have the honor to rock out and hang with some of the best fans in the world, and come back to Europe for the 10th time to headline NSD. Couldn’t be more ready for it!”

Hailing from Troy, Ohio Miss May I will be bringing their brand of metal-core to Europe with full force. Having already released three studio albums on Rise Records and toured here with Parkway Drive, The Ghost Inside, Confession and more recently Bullet For My Valentine, you can rest assured Miss May I will tear the mainland up into shreds.

Levi Benton: “We're unbelievably excited to be coming back for the Impericon Never Say Die Tour. The tour has such a great track record, so to be a part of it as special guest to our friends in Emmure is a huge honour! We will see you all in the pit!"

Representing Australian melodic metal-core, I Killed The Prom Queen will make their Impericon Never Say Die! debut and after a brief hiatus, reformation and their first new material in over 6 years, they’re ready to show us what they got.

Jona Weinhofen: "We are absolutely ecstatic to be able to join the Impericon Never Say Die tour 2013, to say the least. To be a part of such a renowned tour and be sharing the stage with some of our favourite bands playing some places we've never been before is going to be a blast. We have friends such as Deez Nuts and Parkway Drive who have taken part in the NSD tour and now its finally IKTPQ's turn to show Europe what we've got!"

European natives Betraying The Martyrs have toured with the likes of Asking Alexandria, Atilla, Motionless in White and While She Sleeps to name a few. Punishingly heavy and frighteningly tight, these Sumerian Records signings promise a highly energetic and unforgettable live show.

Victor Guillet : “We couldn't be happier to be playing the famous INSD Tour this year, this has been the European tour that sets the standard in the modern metal scene for years now, and it's an honor to be on the bill. We're gonna bring a no-holds barred show to the stage, so come out and party hard with us and have as much fun as we'll be having. See you in the pit!”

Hundredth will be bringing their mix of melody and hardcore to the Impericon Never Say Die! crowds having already graced our shores once before supporting Stick To Your Guns. The latest EP ‘Revolt’ is out now.

Hundredth: “We're pumped to be on Never Say Die this year. We are excited to play to some new folks and we hope to see those who already know of Hundredth pile on top of each other and jump over the barricade.”

Making their Never Say Die! debut, Australian metalcore band Northlane will be showcasing their recent release, the album ‘Singularity’.

Northlane’s Adrian Fitipaldes: "We've been waiting for the right moment to reach Europe and we can't believe how perfectly it has worked out with Never Say Die! being our first trip there. It's a huge honor."

Last but not least and opening this years Impericon Never Say Die! Tour is Rise Of The Northstar, a young thrash band whose spirit was born in the back alleys of 1980’s Shibuya. Mixing contemporary metal-core, Shonen manga and 90’s New York Hardcore, ROTNS are not to be missed.

ROTNS: “Yosh! ROTNS is back on the old continent for the Never Say Die Tour 2013! We're really stocked to play in countries we never hit before. Especially with a great organization on our back and quality bands to share stage with. Show up to the gigs fellaz and come demonstrate your Saiya style in the pit. Big up!”

“Avocado Booking has done it again this year and set up a stellar billing for the Impericon Never Say Die! Tour, that is comparable to no other. With a line up comprised of bands from Europe, the USA and Australia cementing the tour as the figurehead of the scene. We are proud in 2013 to be part of the team and look forward to a powerful 23 Days of party!” – Impericon’s Martin Böttcher
