Press Conference About Metal Bands Being Detained In Hollywood For Trespassing; Massive Festival Announced!

Complete with several U.S. Military vehicles as well as armed and uniformed troops, the Metal Hammer Trespass America Festival was announced yesterday at The Key Club on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood. The Key Club became a military detention camp, all guests received an ID bracelet and had to pass through a caged security check before entering. 

Members from several of the Trespass America support line-up - Kyle "Gumby" Gunther from Battlecross, Emmure's Frankie Palmeri and Mark Castillo, Matt Heafy from Trivium, and recently rejoined Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach - all handcuffed and hooded - were marched out onto the stage at the press conference with a military escort.  Press conference attendees were then able to view the arrival of headliners Five Finger Death Punch on the club's in-house movie screen; a military convoy transported 5FDP - also handcuffed and hooded - up the Sunset Strip to The Key Club 'detention camp.'  Upon arrival, ten U.S Military troops escorted the band through the crowd and onto the stage.  Metal Hammer's editor, Alexander Milas, announced the tour and the lineup as the prisoners-cum-musicians were cut out of their handcuffs by the soldiers and pulled of their hoods for the reveal.

The 31-date Metal Hammer Trespass America Festival will kick off July 13 in Broomfield, CO and end in Los Angeles on August 28.
