KILLSWITCH ENGAGE Reveal Details For 'Alive Or Just Breathing' 10th Anniversary Tour!

'Alive or Just Breathing' was released on May 21, 2002 via Roadrunner Records, and it is the second studio album by New England Metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE! 'Alive or Just Breathing' was the bands debut album on Roadrunner and was recorded from October 2001 to February 2002. Produced by the bands guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz (who is also a drummer), the record was among the first of the Metalcore genre, which combined elements of Heavy Metal and Hardcore. 'Alive or Just Breathing' is viewed as a defining moment for the genre and was well praised upon its release by fans and critics. The lyrics, which were all written by vocalist Jesse Leach, were aimed to bring a positive message through the music.
