Killswitch Engage album set for release

Monday, January 7, 2013 10:08 AM PT

Official press release:

Grammy-nominated, Massachusetts-based hard rockers Killswitch Engage –singer Jesse Leach, guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, bassist Mike D'Antonio, guitarist Joel Stroetzel and drummer Justin Foley- have announced Disarm The Descent as the title of their upcoming sixth album. The 12-track record is due out April 2 on longtime label Roadrunner Records and is the follow up to 2009's self-titled release. Disarm The Descent is the band's first album with original singer Leach at the vocal helm since 2002's now classic, genre-defining Alive or Just Breathing. Leach returned to the band in January 2012 after a decade-long absence.

The first single, "In Due Time," will be made available digitally on February 5. Album pre-orders will kick off in early February, as well, with more details forthcoming.

"It is with a grateful spirit that we prepare for this record's release," Leach said. "From the music, to the lyrics, to the artwork, we are all proud of what we have accomplished. To me this is by far my best vocal performance, much thanks to Adam's guidance and faith in my abilities. I am very grateful to be where I am in life, back in an amazing band with a record we are all excited for the world to hear. Thanks to all the fans for their warm welcome back and their undying love for Killswitch Engage."

Hard rockers? Maybe with Howard. Can we at least get "American metallers" fck I'd Even take metalcore as painful as that brand is.

1/7/2013 10:34:02 AM
Howard Jones is not stoked.

1/7/2013 10:35:27 AM
People still care about this band?

1/7/2013 10:54:41 AM
Cautiously stoked

Bring back Jesse... oh, wait, you did. Marginally more interested in this band now that Jones is out.

1/7/2013 1:04:38 PM
Wonder if the track "Always" is a Bon Jovi cover song.

1/7/2013 1:31:04 PM
Guys who work their chest and back out on Mondays are stoked.

1/7/2013 1:40:17 PM
The teenaged me is stoked

"Wait....where are all the track titles about Jah, Babylon and I and I?"

^^Those titles and lyrics can be found on every album Max Cavalera puts out.

1/7/2013 10:25:40 PM
2004's edition of Headbangers Ball is stoked.

1/7/2013 11:56:47 PM
Actually excited, because Alive or Just Breathing is fcking epic. I hope this lives up to that standard.

1/7/2013 11:57:18 PM

sageS with retard bastard children and hooker wives are not stoked at all.
But 30 year old wannabe bandana wearing pussies are extremely stoked

1/8/2013 1:17:09 AM
Jesse Leach FTW!! In the meantime I'll put on some good old Aftershock and Overcast

1/8/2013 9:59:14 AM
200never is stoked

1/8/2013 10:08:21 AM
Was stoked when I saw the headline. But not stoked after seeing KsE referred to as "hard rock", that kinda ruined it for me. If they truly consider themselves "hard rock" like the direction All That Remains and Avenged Sevenfold have gone then I do not even want to listen at all.

1/8/2013 10:15:29 AM
dudes with tapout shirts are stoked

1/8/2013 10:26:49 AM
hey im knew to lamb butt and i was wondering wat gay was? all u guys are? ya? kiz meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

1/8/2013 2:37:12 PM
I didn't know that Jesse was a Second Amendment freak.

1/8/2013 2:38:06 PM
I can only hope the record title is no indication of how terrible the record will be

1/8/2013 6:16:58 PM
DIZ IZ MA CURZ! lord WEEZAC KIDDDDDDDDDD c-mmin in hawt down from da bwonx and philly 69 frrrt poo

1/8/2013 9:36:06 PM
The legacy of AOJB has been ruined.

Bring back Howard Jones so I already know that it will be lame as fck and I don't need to face the disappointment.

PS praise Jesus.
