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.

Dozens of metal and hardcore bands will be descending on the city of brotherly love, and you can get your tickets beginning April 11 at this location.

Topping the bill are Killswitch Engage and Converge. Among the numerous other acts playing the event are Madball, Unearth, Crowbar, B'Last, Ringworm, Noisem and Nails.

You'll also be able to check out sets from Incendiary, Wrong Answer, Stigmata, Rude Awakening, Alpha & Omega, Death Before Dishonor, Mindset, Die Young, Relentless, Timebomb and many others.

Prior to the 'This Is Hardcore Fest,' Killswitch Engage have a tour lined up in support of their latest album 'Disarm the Descent.' Battlecross will support them on all dates, while Into Another, Trivium, Nothing More and My Ticket Home will join them on select shows.

The tour kicks off May 1 in Huntington, N.Y. and will also see them play festivals such as Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range, Rocklahoma and River City Rockfest.
