“We really couldn’t be more excited about the line-up for this years Impericon Never Say Die! Tour. Every band on the bill brings something unique, which is sure to make this THE best, in your face package for 2014 and yet another great INSD! Tour!” - Avocado Booking’s Marco Walzel.   “Avocado Booking gathered some of the best hardcore bands on this planet for the Impericon Never Say Die! Tour. We are especially excited as the tour will stop in 18 different countries all over Europe this year.” – Impericon’s Martin Böttcher  

After ten years of nonstop, relentless worldwide touring and five studio albums under their belt, Impericon Never Say Die! are excited to present hardcore heroes Terror to headline the 2014 bill. Terror answers to no one. Having released ‘Live By The Code’ in April last year, the band will be showcasing songs from this latest release, alongside favorites from their illustrious career. Front man Scott Vogel commented: “Never Say Die is going to be cool this year. It’s the final tour we are doing in 2014 and are excited to finish the year off in Europe and the UK. Looking forward to this run!”  

After their formation in 2000, Canada’s Comeback Kid have been an undeniable staple of the hardcore community and their latest album release ‘Die Knowing’ is testament to this. Having recently sold out the London Underworld in a matter of days, INSD! Are excited to welcome the band for the third time, as a rotating main support with Stick To Your Guns.

This will be our third time on the NSD festivals. I believe we headlined the first one and it has been really cool to watch our friends at Avocado build this tour into the mammoth that it is now. Looking forward to seeing a lot of the bands and see some old friends.” - Andrew Neufeld  

Joining Comeback Kid in the rotating main support slot is Orange County’s own Stick To Your Guns whose vibrant energy and overall positivity provides a refreshing message of hope that could serve as the soundtrack to the new hardcore/punk revolution. STYG blends melody, heaviness and sincerity to form a sound and live show that caters to fans of Comeback Kid, Ignite and Rise Against. “The line up for NSD is looking insane this year. We can’t wait to play new songs, see old friends and watch some amazing bands. See you there.” - Josh James  

Next up, Canada’s most exciting, adrenaline-charged metalcore band Obey The Brave who have spent the last 2 years building an impressive army of fans. The band, featuring vocalist Alex Erian (ex Despised Icon), formed in 2012 and fueled by sheer passion and a strong DIY ethic, gaining over 14,000 Facebook fans in their first 2 weeks of existence without releasing a single song. Now armed with the Epitaph released debut album ‘Young Blood’, OTB are ready to show Europe how it’s done. “This year’s NSD line-up is sick.  We’re honored and excited to be part of the madness.  It’ll be our first time supporting the new record in Europe.  Can’t wait to play some new shit live and share it with all of you.  See ya in November!” - Alex Erian  

Joining the Impericon Never Say Die! tour for the first time is More Than A Thousand, a hot slab of molten metal, brutally honest hardcore and active rock power that forcefully demands attention. Just as other bands have done with their respective territory, MTAT are putting Portugal on the modern metal map. “Playing the Never Say Die! Tour was always a dream tour for us & now we’re going to be part of it! It’s amazing, we are so happy! We will be promoting our new album ‘Lost At Home Vol.V’ So make sure you come to the shows & have fun with us!” - Vasco  

No Bragging Rights bring the old-school jams hard, fast and loud, the way this special kind of pit-inducing music is meant to be played. Evoking an era of circle pits, stage dives, pile-ups and sing-a-longs, NBR are the embodiment of glory and simplicity and they can’t wait to bring their live show to our shores and tear it up. “One of our goals as a band was to build ourselves in Europe. All the time and hard work we’ve invested, was for an opportunity like this. We are excited & very humbled to be a part of NSD.” - Mike Perez

Finally, opening this year’s stellar line up and hailing from California is melodic hardcore outfit Capsize. The band is in the process of recording their debut full length, which is set for release through Equal Vision Records (Converge, Bane, Refused). Following relentless touring in their homeland including a coast to coast headliner, Capsize are set to open the show with a force to be reckoned with. “We are really stoked to be a part of this year’s Never Say Die Tour. Last year was our first overseas tour and we were treated better than we ever have been before, by everyone involved with the tour. We can’t wait to experience that again, see old friends, and share the stage with bands we have the up most respect for. I’m positive that this tour is going to serve as a reminder to each city we hit that hardcore is alive & well.” - Daniel Wand  

Avocado Booking and Impericon are also pleased to announce that Hope For The Day will be on board as a partner for Impericon Never Say Die! 2014.  

“We are happy to have Hope For The Day as a partner on board for Never Say Die!. Hope For The Day is a nonprofit movement that uses music and the arts platforms for suicide awareness and prevention. Their alternative approach strives to offer education, prevention and hope through creative expression. The Chicago based organization promotes a universal language of inspiration and hope intended to press conversations breaking down mental health stigmas.

Hope For The Day will be present at all of this years Impericon Never Say Die! shows to reach out and connect people with help available to them locally” - Ivonne Davies-Kreye ofAvocado Booking
