Philadelphia just got a whole lot more metal. The City of Brotherly Love’s Electric Factory has announced a massive outdoor metal show for May 6th, and the bill easily makes it one of this summer’s hottest tickets for headbangers around.

Originally billed as just Opeth and Gojira (as if that weren’t enough of a double-header), the show is now also set to feature Mastodon, Eagles of Death MetalDevin Townsend Project, and Russian Circles. Tickets for the mini metal festival are on sale now for $49.99, and you can grab yours via Ticketmaster.

“The Mastodudes and myself couldn’t be more excited to join forces with some of our best friends, and best bands on the planet for a missing link hard rock and heavy metal extravaganza in beautiful Philadelphia” Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor said in a statement (via Loudwire). “We don’t care if you like Pat’s OR Geno’s, come on down and help us worship the lord of riffs and bring a change of underpants, you’re going to need them!”
