Killswitch Engage to Perform Classic Album in Its Entirety on Upcoming Tour

Roadrunner Records

Killswitch Engage will celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their 2002 Roadrunner Records debut, Alive or Just Breathing, in style.

The group will be performing the seminal New Wave of American Heavy Metal album in its entirety on an upcoming U.S. tour. The trek will kick off on November 24 in San Bernardino and wraps on Dec. 20 in Portland, Maine. KsE will also be headlining the annual California Metalfest in San Bernardino, CA on Nov. 24 to launch the tour.

With original frontman Jesse Leach, who left the band shortly after the album’s release, back fronting KsE, it’s perfect timing for the tour, which will also feature more recent hits when the band featured Howard Jones on vocals.

Longtime Massachusetts cohorts Shadows Fall, who came up in the same scene as KsE, will serve as main support. Opening act Acaro also hail from Massachusetts, making it somewhat of a hometown affair.

“I honestly never thought I would have the opportunity to sing these songs on stage with Killswitch again,” Leach said. “Now here I am back in the band and celebrating 10 years of the release of this record. I am absolutely thrilled for this tour. I can’t wait to sing ‘Rise inside’ and ‘Just Barely Breathing’ among others. On top of it all, we have our good friends in Shadows Fall and Acaro joining us. This tour will be one we will all remember!”
