FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE To Join Forces For 'Trespass America Festival' Tour

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, TRIVIUM, POP EVIL, EMMURE, GOD FORBID and BATTLECROSS will join forces for the "Trespass America Festival" tour in July/August. The trek is expected to be officially announced tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday, April 24) during a press conference at the Key Club in West Hollywood, California.

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH's third album, "American Capitalist", debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling 91,000 copies in its first week of release. Both the chart and sales numbers were career highs for the group.

"American Capitalist" was released as a standard CD, and a limited-edition deluxe CD format complete with special packaging plus second disc containing a number of exclusive remixes, including one for "Under And Over It". Meanwhile, the iTunes version carries the bonus track "The Tragic Truth".

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE was recently rejoined by original vocalist Jesse Leach following the departure of Howard Jones.

Leach sang on the band's first self-titled album, which came out in 2000, and on their landmark 2002 Roadrunner debut "Alive Or Just Breathing". Leach left the band in 2002 and was replaced by Jones, but his work on "Alive Or Just Breathing" has always been revered by diehard, longtime KILLSWITCH ENGAGE fans.
