On Tuesday, June 11, Jesse Leach (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE), Levi Benton (MISS MAY I), John Henry (DARKEST HOUR), Tyler “Telle” Smith (THE WORD ALIVE) and Dennis Tvrdik (AFFIANCE) took fans’ questions live from the Roadrunner Records offices. You can now watch video footage of the entire chat below.
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE kicked off its summer headline tour in support of “Disarm The Descent” on May 30 at the Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The region was hit by a devastating tornado on May 20. Therefore, the band has decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from the evening’s tickets sales to the Regional Food Bank Of Oklahoma.
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE‘s fifth studio album, “Disarm The Descent”, sold around 48,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 7 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on April 2 via Roadrunner Records.
“Disarm The Descent” is KILLSWITCH ENGAGE‘s first album with original singer Jesse 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 artwork for the new CD was created by bassist Mike D’Antonio.
