Get ready to witness metal history in the making! Killswitch Engage, legends of modern heavy music, are set to bring their intense, soul-shaking live show to Australia this September.

You can count the number of acts in the last twenty years that have influenced and inspired entire sub genres within the heavy music scene. Killswitch Engage are at the top of that list.

The three-time Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling heavyweights revitalised a stagnating metal scene in the middle of a stale decade for heavy music with the release of both 2002’s Alive of Just Breathing and 2004’s, The End Of Heartache. Combining soaring, heartfelt vocals with guttural anguished growls set against a powerful mix of groove metal, hardcore and old school traditional heavy-metal-harmony, Killswitch Engage set a new standard, were heralded as a true innovators and spawned a million copy cats.

None however, could match Killswitch Engage for their sheer authenticity and pure musical skill. Over the next two decades, Killswitch Engage rose to the top and delivered eight studio albums, three live ones and played every festival that exists.

Their Australian fans have been there from the start. The bands first foray down under was way back in 2004 opening for Soilwork and Anthrax which marked the start of an enduring love affair with their army of fans. An army who have not experienced Killswitch Engage live in Australia for 6 long years. Their last visit in 2018 alongside Parkway Drive and Thy Art Is Murder!

While the band are here in September opening for the one and only Iron Maiden in monstrous arenas, they are also going back to their roots with three very intimate shows in Frankston, the Gold Coast and Newcastle that promise a visceral, sweat-drenched experience.

Supports for each show include the recently reformed Feed Her To The Sharks for Frankston: Dark, oppressive death metallers, Descent for the Gold Coast and hardcore merchants Dropsaw will play in front of their hometown crowd in Newcastle.

This is your chance to see Killswitch Engage up close and personal, a rare opportunity to witness one of metal’s greatest in an intimate setting.
