“I’ll never forget when we first started touring and I had to quit my day job to give it a go,” recalls guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz. “I remember thinking, ‘Just try it for a year, that way you’ll have no regrets when it doesn’t work out, and you can go find a new job.’ 20-plus years later, here we are, and it’s been an amazing ride. I’m so grateful to our fans for letting us continue to do this…THANK YOU, KsE FANS EVERYWHERE!!!”
“It’s hard to believe KsE has been going for so long,” says guitarist Joel Stroetzel. “We’re gettin’ old! We hope you all enjoy the photos, as they have definitely brought back a lot of memories for us! It seems like only yesterday we were playing VFW halls in Western Mass and rehearsing in my parents’ basement!”
“Looking back at what KsE has seen and done in 20 years is nothing short of mind-blowing to me,” concludes bassist Mike D’Antonio. “How a little band from Massachusetts could tour the world for this long is beyond me. A lifetime of exciting moments and amazing memories…I would not trade it for the world.”
Killswitch Engage have also launched their Retro merch line, offering new takes on classic designs which will be available in limited quantities. The initial collection includes designs from the Alive Or Just Breathing and As Daylight Dies album cycles, available to pre-order HERE.
The band’s latest album, Atonement, is out now via Music For Nations, available to purchase HERE.
