    Metal juggernauts and ARTISTdirect.com faves Killswitch Engage will hit the road on their first tour in support of Disarm the Descent this summer. They will be supported by As I Lay Dying, Miss May I and Affiance.

    "Everyone in the Killswitch family is excited to get out on our first U.S. heading tour in support of our new record," singer Jesse Leach said. "We are hitting some great cities and have a great mix of songs from every era of Killswitch as well as of course a handful of new ones.

    "We look forward to sharing this tour with our old friends and brothers in metal As I Lay Dying. I personally have never had the chance to tour with them and I am looking forward to having such a quality band out with us to give this tour even more fire! We will also be joined by a talented and up-and-coming band Miss May I. Thanks to all the U.S. fans for your support! Our live show will be full on energy with all of us ready to take this to a whole new level."

    Bassist Mike D. concurred, saying, "We are super excited to be back out with our good buds in As I Lay Dying! They are some of our favorite dudes to hang with on the road, so assumptions are high that utter chaos shall ensue. There will be so much metal riffage -- you could build your own Carnival Cruse Ship. That's right, 'CHUGGA CHUGGA Paralysis' is surely imminent."

    OMG, we so want to go see KsE and mosh our faces off, chugga chugga style. We're buying tickets ASAP. They go on sale April 12 and 13, depending on your market. Snatch 'em up before they sell out, which they inevitably will.
