    Killswitch Engage guitarist Joel Stroetzel has been forced to sit out the band's tour dates this week. He experienced a death in the family and Unearth guitarist Ken Susi will fill in.

    The band's statement read as follows: "We will be performing some songs as a four-piece and some songs with the talented and entertaining Ken Susi from Unearth. Our thoughts and love go out to Joel and his family. Joel wanted us to carry on and not cancel any shows, so here we go! Big thanks to Ken Susi for learning songs in a day!"

    We send our best out to the guitarist and his family as they cope with their loss.

    Have you seen KsE live? If so, how awesome were they? They are one of the best metal bands working today.
