STM Fest organizer Matt Day comments:
“This is the second of many Spread the Metal Festivals to come, and this one comes to you in the form of Kittie, Suffocation, The Agonist, Augury, Skull Fist, and many more tearing up The Opera House stage in Toronto. 100% of the profits from the festival are going to Kiva.org in order to fight poverty and eventually injustice around the world. There’s a lot in it for fans this year as well though, since they can make off with signed albums, VIP experiences, album downloads and so much more. Now go forth and Spread the Metal.”
In addition, the Halifax edition will be held on August 24th & 25th and also feature The Agonist, Augury, Skullfist, Deathpoint, The Catalyst, Erimha, Death Valley Driver, Sanktuary and many more to be announced at a later date.
All profits will be donated by Spread the Metal Records to The Heart and Stroke Foundation in order for them to continue their life-saving work.

To compliment the festival, the label is launching a crowd funding campaign in order to raise additional funds for Kiva.
Among the perks are signed albums and set lists from every band at the festival (including some that aren’t), guitar picks, album downloads, etc. As well, fans will have the chance to attend the sound check, hang out with the headliner of their choice, and even punch a record label exec!
