Gorilla Biscuits, The Callous Daoboys, and 2 others announced to play Furnace Fest 2023

furnace fest 2023

Furnace Fest announced four acts that will play next years festival via social media. Legendary New York hardcore band Gorilla Biscuits will be joined by metalcore up and comers The Callous Daoboys, Delaware's Foreign Hands, and Christian metal band Training For Utopia.

The festival shared the following:

What better way to start announcing FF2023 than by giving you four artists who will perform at Furnace Fest for the first time?

In alphabetical order:
1. The Callous Daoboys
2. Foreign Hands
3. Gorilla Biscuits
4. Training For Utopia

We're huge fans of every one of these bands and can't believe we'll be sharing the Sloss Furnaces magic with them next September!

For TFU, they had played Slacker66 (at least once, maybe twice???) but have not played live since 1999!
Who else has waited 24 years for these legends to awaken, and who can name every artist Don & Ryan have worked with???

The Callous f*ckbois

aw snap, The Hallous Domos are supposed to be thought prococking

anonymous 11/25/2022 12:37:31 PM

Holy shit, what a sure fire way to kill any interest in this fest.

I love foreign hands when the lights go out in the rest stop bathroom.

anonymous 11/25/2022 1:36:10 PM

Amazing how they've managed to turn this fest from a premier destination once in a lifetime festival into something somehow worse than all the Danny Wimmer fests in less than 2 years.

anonymous 11/25/2022 1:50:05 PM

That TFU pic! I wouldn't let those clowns near a stage.

anonymous 11/25/2022 2:05:30 PM

"Amazing how they've managed to turn this fest from a premier destination once in a lifetime festival into something somehow worse than all the Danny Wimmer fests in less than 2 years." It's a Wimmer fest for Christian metal core dads who think they're "too cool" for Wimmer fests.

anonymous 11/25/2022 2:10:14 PM

The Callous Daoboys are just terrible, unlistenable garbage. Foreign Hands and Training for Utopia... who?? I don't even vaguely remember these losers. And who in the absolute f*ck is still going to see Gorilla Biscuits?? Has the novelty not worn out for people?? They were awful when they first reunited in, whatever, 05 and just laughable at that shit Revelation fest like 10 years ago, which is saying something because most all the bands were embarrassingly over the hill. Can someone who actually still goes to see them and Youth of Today explain to me, with a straight face, how you can look at yourself in the mirror?? Do you not have any dignity?

anonymous 11/25/2022 2:17:41 PM

^^^ Yes. Band for 5 or 6 years milks reunion for 17. There ought to be a law that you can only reunite for Max 10% of the number of shows you played as an actual band.

anonymous 11/25/2022 2:24:36 PM

Still riding that fear factory style hard I see

anonymous 11/25/2022 3:19:08 PM

None of the nu-jacks are stoked about Training For Utopia because they were too busy using Mommy's credit card for Zao and Embodyment merch from OG METALCORE MERCHSWAP to have even heard of this band.

anonymous 11/25/2022 3:21:09 PM

Samuel Cortowhocares here. I bootlegged Disembodied merch and got hit up by the band, then told em I swear I'd never do it again then bragged about picking up another stack of their bootlegs later that evening.

anonymous 11/25/2022 3:39:07 PM

They better get It Dies Today, Scarlet, Burnt by The Sun, Botch

anonymous 11/25/2022 3:41:56 PM

Chode Fest.

anonymous 11/25/2022 3:44:58 PM

This festival has endless amounts of money for every newer shit band on the planet, but can't book Dodgin Bullets, Falling Cycle, or an original lineup Embodyment reunion.

anonymous 11/25/2022 3:46:04 PM

Only a matter of time before THE CHINESE WHISPERS of a 7 Angels 7 Plagues reunion start up again.

Where's that Ghoti Hook and Slick Shoes reunion.

anonymous 11/25/2022 3:52:05 PM

Festival organizers out here booking wack ass newer bands cuz they know all the old IPA drinking shit heads wont be enough to cover the festival expenses.

anonymous 11/25/2022 4:03:41 PM

Mike Ziemer can ruin anything.

anonymous 11/25/2022 4:08:12 PM

7A7P, A Life Once Lost, On Broken Wings = 100% attendance

anonymous 11/25/2022 4:19:15 PM

"Yes. Band for 5 or 6 years milks reunion for 17. There ought to be a law that you can only reunite for Max 10% of the number of shows you played as an actual band." Oh f*ck yeah. Get me a petition and I'll sign that shit.

anonymous 11/25/2022 5:16:08 PM

The money and nostalgia for this scene is gonna run out soon, can't wait for this poser scene to die.

anonymous 11/25/2022 5:18:35 PM

The Callous Daoboys are just terrible, unlistenable garbage. Assuming this has something to do with Liquid metal playing their bullshit and Jose fanboying out

The Callous They/Thems

anonymous 11/25/2022 5:59:42 PM

Nothing will ever top Furnace Fest 1939.

anonymous 11/25/2022 6:19:45 PM

Training For Utopia were f*cking sick. Yall suck. I have no idea who Dickboy band is but wow thats a shit name. An OG Embodyment reunion would be great.

PoultryInMotion 11/25/2022 7:13:00 PM

Thanksgiving leftover farts are kicking in, guys...

anonymous 11/25/2022 7:26:01 PM

I still commend FF for doing a good job of having solid lineups and putting on a good fest but this announcement isn't going to push tickets. Training makes sense even if it isn't for everyone. Gorilla is a nostalgia thing. The suburban gendercore band isn't worthy of playing later than 2pm on the smallest stage. Going to need DEP and some real bangers or this one might be the last FF.

anonymous 11/25/2022 7:50:58 PM

sucks. get undying, bloodlet, prayer for cleansing, darkest hour, disembodied/martyr AD, sinai beach, poison the well again, most precious blood, overcast, turmoil, starkweather, falling cycle, cave in, snapcase

anonymous 11/25/2022 7:58:20 PM

…ion dissonance, into the moat, from a second story window, botch, robinson, see you next tuesday, glass casket, animosity, a life once lost, nights like these

Code Orange is better than all of this garbage.

anonymous 11/25/2022 9:25:11 PM

Well, The Dillinger Escape is allegedly playing this.

rick_tocchet 11/25/2022 10:45:58 PM

I hope COVID hits hard again to cancel this shit so no one has to go through seeing these god awful shit bands. Jesus christ, this is just as bad as the DR. telling you that you have ass cancer.

anonymous 11/26/2022 12:08:22 AM

Sanction gonna get snubbed again?

anonymous 11/26/2022 12:25:15 AM

Damn, lambgoat still jocking furnace fest, hope some drama happens where they have to burn it down like whatever fest they did last year till it closes down for good. Also to the first poster saying from autumn to ashes is tier 1, they're gay, had one good song, drummers ok, but they're garbage and your taste is in question.

This is NOT a good first announcement for any fest. Doesnt matter how many more bands are going to be playing.

anonymous 11/26/2022 7:10:17 AM

rick_tocchet 7 minutes ago This is NOT a good first announcement for any fest. Doesnt matter how many more bands are going to be playing. lmao no one will remember this after the next announcement. I'm a news only f@g and I know how these things work better than you lmao

anonymous 11/26/2022 7:43:17 AM

The sun has set on Poison The Well. Skipping over The Opposite of December and hearing the steady decline in the vocal range, and I say this as a fan.

anonymous 11/26/2022 9:05:09 AM

Logo looks too much like Fear Factory.

anonymous 11/26/2022 9:12:49 AM

Plastic Soul Impalement was years ahead of its time. I remember going into Gospel Supplies to buy it when it came out because that's where you could get all the Solid State releases.

anonymous 11/26/2022 12:24:29 PM

Tired of these newjack bands getting any attention, where's the oldhead real shit like Play Ball, Blue Light Sale, Ouija Surfboard, Caulk, Haste Makes Waste, or f*ck even bring back The Petting Zoo Experience??? FF is dead as shit without bands like these.

anonymous 11/26/2022 1:44:23 PM

^Those sound like made up bands or bands 5 people have ever heard of, and that includes the band members.

anonymous 11/26/2022 1:53:12 PM

I'm thinking this is the year Botch does the cash grab so I anticipate they will be there. Curl Up and Die has been active for a few years yet still hasn't been put on. They aren't greedy so I can only imagine the offer has been really bad or scheduling conflicts.

anonymous 11/26/2022 1:59:11 PM

i have it on good authority (on scene here in AL) that botch, DEP (direct support one day), at the gates and turmoil will be an announcement soon

anonymous 11/26/2022 2:42:13 PM

FATA with Ben would be cool doing the ep and the two full lengths minus the slow songs

anonymous 11/26/2022 3:32:00 PM

i have it on good authority (on scene here in AL) that E-Town concrete, Say anything, Kill the Imposter, Boys like girls(direct support one day)and Yung Gravy will be announcement soon

Can't wait to see the the 2023 Lambooat shirt!

If Since The Flood isn't on this you can shove this fest up your ass.

Damn Rick's really punching his drywall/beating his wife over this news... Webby have some compassion.

anonymous 11/26/2022 7:54:47 PM

since the flood, sinai beach, twelve tribes, dead to fall has been and always will be unlistenable garbage

anonymous 11/26/2022 9:49:26 PM

lol at any fest these days not respecting the likes of recently reformed masters in the genre like HullxCrash, Fog Crawler, Lucyinthesky, or Cigarette After Hours

more like Sense the Crud hahahahaha rick is a loser

anonymous 11/27/2022 2:57:07 AM

Fear Factory is headlining?

rick_tocchet 11/27/2022 7:14:37 AM

So Furnace Fest had buy one get one ticket sales this past year because of the shitty lineup. I can see that happening again for sure this upcoming year. Who is going to travel half way across the country for some whack ass, corny f*cking bands??? Next year there wont be a FF and thank f*cking God for that.

anonymous 11/27/2022 7:25:01 AM

^You know a show is shit when they offer a BOGO.

rick_tocchet 11/27/2022 7:51:14 AM

They are sending me emails saying you can buy FF tix for LIFE !!! Like buy these tickets at a discount even though you dont know who is going to be playing and then you are f*cked for your money. But then for the 2021 FF they went low key on some big bands not playing, they didnt even announce some bands werent showing up, they just didnt schedule them for the fest. The audacity of these f*cks. f*ck them.
