KILLSWITCH ENGAGE: Interview, Performance Footage From U.K.'s DOWNLOAD Festival Posted Online

Vocalist Howard Jones of Massachusetts metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE was interviewed earlier today at the Download festival, which is being held June 12-14 at Donington Park, United Kingdom. Watch the chat below. Also available is video footage of the band's performance at the event.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's self-titled fourth album, is scheduled for release on June 30 via Roadrunner Records.

"This album will be the death of me," Jones recently told RollingStone.com. "There was nothing comfortable about it for any of us," he said of making the record, most of which took place in Atlanta under the watchful eye of superproducer Brendan O'Brien (BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, AC/DC, PEARL JAM), marking the first time KILLSWITCH guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz has stepped aside for an outside producer.

"We're known for being a pretty positive band — we're almost a self-help band," Jones said. "I feel like Tony Robbins or something. We're known for anthems, but this time I really tried to write from a different place. I've got enough to draw on to write some stuff that can be dark. Maybe there's still a hint of positivity in it, but there are some songs on there that are not positive at all."
