Tons Of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE Tour Dates Revealed!

This year will be a very busy one for New England Metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE. The band will be releasing their sixth studio album and first one with Jesse Leach since 2002's 'Alive Or Just Breathing', on April 2 via Roadrunner Records. Entitled 'Disarm THE Descent', this record is definitely one of the most anticipated albums of 2013. Listen to a NEW KSE song HERE!

In support of 'Disarm THE Descent', the band will be very busy touring the world. The band will be kicking off their world tour in February at the Soundwave Festival in Australia, then in March they will go to Hawaii and Alaska. The band will then focus on doing press for the NEW record, and in April they will be touring Europe all the way until May.

The big question that this touring agenda arises is the large gap between May 6 and August 14. Well, that gap happens to fall around the time in which the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival will occur. HERE is the initial batch of tour dates for Mayhem Fest!

On Sunday, December 16, 2012, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE took over the Music Hall Of Williamburg in Brooklyn, New York, and celebrated the 10th anniversary of their groundbreaking album 'Alive Or Just Breathing'. Prior to the bands ferocious and legendary set, we had the chance to chat with KSE bassist Mike D'Antonio about the 10th anniversary tour in celebration of 'Alive Or Just Breathing', and how the return of Jesse Leach revitalized the band.
