Killswitch Engage will perform at the second annual CBGB Festival in New York City this Saturday, October 12. It's an intimate gig, and an underplay, so if you're local, DO NOT miss it.
KsE will be honoring the CBGBs spirit with a special, intimate show at Santos Party House, making it one that New York area fans and festival goers won't want to miss.
"I am excited to be a part of the CBGB fest," declares Jesse Leach, frontman of KsE. "The music that came out of the early punk and hardcore scene changed my life and CBGBs was a big part of that scene. Playing a smaller intimate venue like Santos Party House gives us a chance to change stuff up and give fans a different KsE show with a diversified set list. Saturday will be a night to remember!"
He ain't kidding!
Additionally, proceeds from the show will be donated to The FC Foundation, an organization whose mission is to fight cancer by raising awareness and to educate about early cancer detection, ultimately putting an end to late-stage cancer diagnoses.
Special, intimate show? Good cause? Great fucking band? Yeah, sign our asses up!
Eye Ra Haze will join KsE as their special guests for the show.
Tickets go on sale today, October 8, at 10AM ET. They will be available here and here for the price of $25. A limited number of CBGBs Fest badge-holders will be admitted to the show.
Doors are scheduled to open at 6PM.
NYC and tri-state area Killswitch Engage fans will also be able to catch the band on their upcoming tour with Lamb of God, Testament and Huntress, which launches later this month. As part of this tour, KsE will play Roseland Ballroom in NYC on October 25 and the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey on November 22.
KsE encourage fans attending this intimate show to bring proof of their purchased Roseland Ballroom ticket or Starland Ballroom ticket to the merch area to claim a special KsE autographed item.
Oooh! Special stuff, with John Hancocks?! SIGN! US! UP!
There are TONS of reasons to go to this show. So if you can, you should.
