The lineup for APEX FEST VI — the sixth biennial installation of the apocalyptic music event — has been finalized, the festival to bring three full days of audio tumult to NYC and now, far beyond, as tours surrounding the festival are actively being confirmed throughout the Northeastern US. Additionally, fest preorder bundles have been released, which include limited edition shirts for GNAW THEIR TONGUES and THE BODY, as well as a compilation CD featuring tracks (many of them exclusive) from the majority of the fest lineup. These sales go directly toward funding the event, meaning attendees are active participants in the production of the festival.

A variation of the APEX FEST VI festival lineup in NYC will take to the road on a select run of East Coast tour select dates preceding and following the event; tour number one will take place in the week prior to the festival itself, while a second lineup will travel during the week following the fest. The first tour will begin in Montreal and then head south with shows in Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore, returning to New York for the first day of the festival there. Tour number two will follow a similar reverse route north, terminating in Montreal. Stand by for this routing to be announced shortly.
