Killswitch-EngageBoston metalcore band Killswitch Engage have announced their first headlining U.S. tour this summer in support of their new album Disarm The Descent.  The album was recently released via Roadrunner Records.

Vocalist Jesse Leach commented on the upcoming tour:

“Everyone in the Killswitch family is excited to get out on our first U.S. headlining tour in support of our new record. 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.”

Leach continued, “We look forward to sharing this tour with our old friends and brothers in metal As I Lay Dying. I personally have never had the chance to tour with them and I am looking forward to having such a quality band out with us to give this tour even more fire! We will also be joined by a talented and up-and-coming band Miss May I and a new band we’re all excited to see live called Affiance. Thanks to all the U.S. fans for your support! Our live show will be full-on energy with all of us ready to take this to a whole new level.”

Bassist Mike D. concurred saying, “We are super excited to be back out with our good buds in As I Lay Dying! They are some of our favorite dudes to hang with on the road, so assumptions are high that utter chaos shall ensue. There will be so much metal riffage — you could build your own Carnival Cruse Ship. That’s right, ‘CHUGGA CHUGGA Paralysis’ is surely imminent.”
