Bio: Killswitch Engage

Metalcore forefathers Killswitch Engage and thrash legends Anthrax announce today that they will hit the road this Spring to co-headline a 27-date North American tour, presented by SiriusXM.  The bands’ itinerary will also include an April 15 appearance at the Texas Independence Festival in Austin as well as each band headlining two solo shows separate from the double bill.  With Anthrax and KsE rotating the closing slot over the course of the dates, the tour will hit the ground on March 29 in Montclair, NJ and then criss-cross the continent, wrapping up in Boston on May 7.  The intense and dynamic The Devil Wears Prada will provide direct support on all dates.  Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, 12/16 at 10AM local time.  Log on to http://www.killswitchengage.com   www.anthrax.com  or www.tdwpband.com for all details regarding ticket purchasing and pre-sales.

For Anthrax, these dates are in support of the band’s critically-celebrated 11th album, For All Kings (Megaforce), released last February.  Celebrating its 35th anniversary, 2016 has been action-packed for Anthrax.  For All Kings debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart and #9 on the Billboard 200, the band’s second Top 10 chart entry.  Two striking music videos made with director Jack Bennett, one over-the-top grizzly, the other an innovative stop-motion piece, an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” that paired the band with the iconic Robert De Niro, and sharing stages with bands like Iron Maiden, Lamb of God, Avenged Sevenfold, and fellow Big Four members Slayer, were just a few of the highlights.

“Anthrax and Killswitch will be a really good blend for fans,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante.  "We both play metal, but we play two different forms of the genre.  I think fans of both bands are in for a ‘Total Explosion of the Senses.’”  Added the band's Frank Bello, “This Anthrax/KsE tour is a powerful ball of energy ready to unleash the metal in the U.S.”   “Anthrax and Killswitch - KillThrax!  Holy crap!,” said Scott Ian.  "I am so excited about these upcoming shows with our old friends Killswitch Engage.  Get out your pit pants and start stretching now for all the glorious action and fun!” 

Killswitch Engage released the universally regarded Incarnate (Roadrunner) this past March, which debuted #6 on the Billboard 200, and #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Album chart.  2016 also saw KsE appearing on a Stars Wars-themed Revolver cover, staging an unforgettable and intimate, five-club NYC takeover for album release week, and embarking on an impressive Incarnate World Tour. On November 25, the band released Beyond the Flames: Home Video Vol. II on Blu-ray, a treasure trove of gripping content, containing over 3.5 hours of footage.  At the heart of this release is a 75-minute documentary that chronicles the return of original vocalist Jesse Leach, after nearly a decade away, to the band he helped form back in 1999.  It picks up right where their 2005 {Set This} World Ablaze release left off, revealing the rest of the untold KsE story.

KsE singer Jesse Leach echoed Anthrax's enthusiasm about the upcoming trek, saying. "We are so stoked to tour with thrash legends Anthrax! We are sure this will bring a powerhouse of a live show with the combination of both bands. This is, hands down, the most excited we've been to tour alongside a band in a long while. This will be one you won't want to miss. KillThrax is coming for you!!!!"  

Bio: Anthrax

Creation and destruction. They're fundamental building blocks of life, shaping all we have and determining all we know. You can sugarcoat it all you want, but the results are all the same. Life is created, life is destroyed, and the world goes on. In between? We live, we love, we laugh, we cry, we mourn. Life takes us on flights of uninhibited fancy, and life sends us down roads of unrelenting turmoil. Through the creation, through the destruction, and through the bittersweet ironies that consume us in the process In the midst of it all, there is heavy metal. And in the midst of the metal, there is Anthrax.

Anthrax are pioneers of the American metal scene, and patriots in music's new world order. They fought for liberation before the music industry even knew it was shackled, breaking down barriers that, at the time, few of us even knew existed. In the 80s, Anthrax was amongst the leaders of the heavy metal insurgence. In the 90s, they were among the few survivors of heavy metals apocalypse. And with the dawning of a new millennium, they've remained as unabashedly potent as they'd ever been.

Through the mid-80s to early-90s, Anthrax reigned as heavy metal hierarchy, their thrash metal tendencies crashing head-on with an uncanny ability to fuse molten rhythms, infectious melodies, and unbridled metal into damn-near perfect songs. After parting ways with frontman Joey Belladonna in 1992, they returned with Armored Saint frontman John Bush at the helm for the epic Sound Of White Noise in 1993. It was a new twist in a story that had no intention of ending. Anthrax have sold more than 10 million records worldwide, been nominated for three Grammy Awards, crossed the globe on more than fifty tours spanning 32 countries on five continents, released ten studio albums, and have left an indelible mark on the music industry. They said rap and metal could never mix, but Anthrax made it happen first, their 1991 collaboration with Public Enemy on the rappers Bring The Noise toppling social barriers between styles that few thought could co-exist. By the end of the decade, Anthrax could be credited with breaking ground on a whole new genre in the world of hard rock and heavy metal.
