I’ve joked how Tuesday isn’t just for tacos anymore and now offers up a number of concert and festival announcements. If you don’t believe me just refer to the news that came from the Deftones and Wardruna who have revealed their touring plans. Now while we are fixated on the NYC territory and don’t get too much out of it, when an event like this “Cruel World Festival” gets announced you have to help share the news. Take a look at the poster and a clearer visual of the lineup.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I am Mr, Heavy Metal tried and true from my head to my toe I always had an appreciation for so many of the bands that will be performing on this festival event. A lot of them fell into the New Wave genre and it was a favorite of mine during the 80’s. Yeah, I am vintage my friends but I digress. Sadly I don’t get out to festivals like this one but if something should change and I end up there you can count on some reporting about it. You can also count on any updates that we are made aware of about the event. See you next time and by all means chime in down below in the comments section with what you think about it.
