Killswitch Engage’s Disarming Agenda

An album released earlier this month means plenty of tour dates for Killswitch Engage as the metalcore band grabs As I Lay Dying, Miss May I and opener Affiance for a road trip beginning at the end of May.

Released April 2, Disarm The Descent is already racking up the kind of sales that make for a healthy tour.  By the time Killswitch Engage launches its summer travels fans will probably be demanding the new music as much as they yearn for tracks from the band’s impressive catalog.

“Everyone in the Killswitch family is excited to get out on our first U.S. headlining tour in support of our new record,” singer Jesse Leach said.  “We are hitting some great cities and have a great mix of songs from every era of Killswitch as well as of course a handful of new ones.”
