This year, At the Gates will headline the North American tour with Converge and Vallenfyre announced as support.
Necks will be snapped and the pit will be packed for the annual 'This Is Hardcore Fest.' This year's four-day extravaganza will be held at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia from July 24-27.
Though rooted in hardcore, these underground juggernauts are two of the most experimental and unrelenting metal bands of this century.

Decibel Magazine recently celebrated their 100th issue with an insane concert in Philadelphia, a show we dedicated ourselves not to miss. The show's lineup itself was incredible, presenting Converge, Pig Destroyer, Repulsion, Municipal Waste, Tombs + Evoken live, but the most incredible parts of the evening came from Baroness frontman John Baizley, who offered not only a surprise speech, but shared the stage with Converge for the song 'Coral Blue.'
There is absolutely no reason why you should miss this show. Warm up your car, grab your plane tickets, reschedule your wedding date if you have to!

Congrats to the Faceless for snatching a win from Every Time I Die in our latest Death Match. The technical deathcore band and their track 'Autotheist Movement III: Deconsecrate' will now make it's pilgrimage to the Death Match Hall of Fame, but they've got an extreme and incredibly innovative band to go up against this round.
