Headliners Emmure are no strangers to Europe as they have toured over here ten times before including previous Never Say Die Tour packages. Emmure screamer Frankie Palmeri had this to say about the bands inclusion on the tour:

“Myself , Jesse , Mike , Mark C and Mark D are all pleased to tell you that we are going to be headlining this years Never Say Die! tour. The line up is superb so do not miss one of the biggest and best tours happening this year! We can't wait to see all our incredible European fans again as we bring down the house in pure EMMURE fashion.”

The diverse line up hails from the USA, Europe and Australia. One of the Aussie bands on the bill are I Killed the Prom Queen who are making their Never Say Die debut.  After taking a short break the band have reunited and have put out new material for the first time in 6 years. Guitarist and Vocalist Jonah Weinhofen spoke about being on the highly anticipated tour:

...To be a part of such a renowned tour and be sharing the stage with some of our favourite bands playing some places we've never been before is going to be a blast. We have friends such as Deez Nuts and Parkway Drive who have taken part in the NSD tour and now its finally IKTPQ's turn to show Europe what we've got!"

All great gigs need a great opening band and the Impericon Never Say Die tour has picked a great opener for the tour. Rise of the Northstar are a thrash band whose spirit was born in the back alleys of 1980s Shibuya. Japanese Culture features heavily in the bands music. The band released a statement about their inclusion:

“Yosh! ROTNS is back on the old continent for the Never Say Die Tour 2013! We're really stocked to play in countries we never hit before. Especially with a great organization on our back and quality bands to share stage with. Show up to the gigs fellaz and come demonstrate your Saiya style in the pit. Big up!”
