Earlier this year, Killswitch Engage was ready to tear it up alongside Hatebreed on the East Coast. Unfortunately, the band was forced to drop off the trek due to Jesse Leach's vocal chord surgery. The group promised to make it up to fans, and yesterday, they kept their word.
Killswitch Engage will embark on a headlining trek through several venues they planned to play in the spring. The trek, which begins on Nov. 24, will have stops inside Cleveland's Agora Ballroom on Nov. 28 and Sayreville's Starland Ballroom on Dec. 6.
For this tour, they'll be joined by a trio of talented groups. Born of Osiris are slated to release their new studio album before the year is out. Last month, the group released the new song "Silence The Echo." Sludge metal pioneers Crowbar has been busy supporting their 2016 studio album The Serpent Only Lies. Opening act Death Ray Vision, which includes Killswitch Engage bassist Mike D'Antonio, will begin recording their new album Negative Mental Attitude next month. The album will be released later this year. The band recently welcomed new vocalist Jeff Gard into the lineup.
Tickets will go on sale this Friday (Aug. 24) at 10 a.m. local time. Several ticket packages are available right now.
Killswitch Engage is busy working on their new studio album, which will feature an appearance from former vocalist Howard Jones. The album will be released on Metal Blade Records sometime in 2019. The band's last studio album was 2016's Incarnate, which peaked at number seven on the Billboard Top 200 chart with 33,000 albums sold in the first week. The album includes the charting singles "Strength of the Mind" and "Hate by Design."
