Massachusetts and New York metalheads get a sprawling double dose of tough and untamed hard rock as the Eat Your Heart Out Festival 2012 takes two states by storm in one marathon weekend. Touted as one of the “spring festivals worth attending” by Alternative Press, Eat Your Heart Out touts a buoyant lineup of international thrashers, with headlining performances from metallurgists Attack Attack! each night. The first day of the festival takes place at the three-stage live venue of Tuxedo Junction in Danbury, Massachusetts, where 14 hardcore metal and screamo acts such as Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, Our Last Night, and That’s Outrageous blaze through merciless sets that shake eardrums for milk money.
Sunday in Poughkeepsie chops down trees and holds its ground as 23 bands send mosh tornados sweeping through The Chance Theater. A Plea for Purging wrecks the esophagus while encouraging audience trebuchets, and other bands including Counterparts and Knuckle Up! preach empathic messages of anarchy. The enticingly pierced and tattooed model troupe The Sinister Girls hosts each night of the festival.
