3 Inches of Blood drummer Ash Pearson comments on the band's long-awaited return to NYC, "We’re very excited to come to New York for the first time in over a decade. New York fans have always been good to us and we’re looking forward to playing for them again. Should be an incredible weekend"

Metal Injection founder and festival organizer Frank Godla adds:

“Last year was an incredible way to kick things off for the Metal Injection Festival, and with this year being our 20th anniversary I decided to head back to our origins. This year, I bring this mammoth weekend to Brooklyn, NY with a celebration it’s never seen.
"The list of artists and special sets on this roster is truly insane, and I couldn’t be happier about how this shaped up. Even the smallest bands on this roster excite the shit out of me, and will be household names. So here’s your chance to see what they’re made of the way I see them.
"I can’t wait to see y’all there!”
