Since a lot of people have asked, we figured that we’d set the record straight. Howard will be on board for our four (4) upcoming dates in May. We are excited to be back at full strength for these dates. Hope to see you all there.
Killswitch Engage wanted to share with you some footage that was recently shot at the Irving Plaza shows in New York City. First, there's an awesome behind-the-scenes video shot at soundcheck on the first night featuring Adam, Joel & Mike jamming out a unique version of "Prelude," the opener track on the debut album. Second, the final song of the set was "Fixation on the Darkness," featuring Jesse Leach on vocals – and you can see that on YouTube as well.
FYI: A version of Jesse (and Phil) performing "Temple from the Within" is available exclusively to Take This Oath members (http://www.takethisoath.com/). If you're a member, be sure to check out Killswitch as a 6-piece (even if only for a minute or so)!

“Wow… I can’t believe that we made it though this one! The first week of the tour was really looking grim ... blizzards, shattered bus windshields, show cancellations ... lead singers having to leave the tour! We can’t thank our good friend Phil from All That Remains enough for coming to the rescue. Equally, we can’t thank our fans enough for coming out to the shows, being so supportive, and throwing down so hard despite the situation. Adam said this at a lot of the shows, but I would like to confirm it… Killswitch Engage does in fact have the best fans in the world! Until we meet again… Peace out!”- Joel
