KILLSWITCH ENGAGE: New Video Interview With ADAM DUTKIEWICZ

Musik Universe conducted an interview with guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz of Massachusetts metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE at this year's edition of the Heavy MTL festival, which was held August 11-12 at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. You can now watch the chat below.

In a recent interview with AltPress.com, Dutkiewicz stated about the progress of the songwriting sessions for KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's new album, tentatively due in early 2013, "We've done basics for 16 songs, and we've got some vocal ideas down for two of them. When we get [off the road] in September, we'll put the finishing touches on the other 14. The two are just about completed. One of them actually leaked already somehow. Somebody at the record company who is an absolute idiot did it. The only bummer about it was the fact that it's just not done. It would have been nice to have something a little more complete leak."

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE has been performing the song that leaked, "No End In Sight", during the band's "Trespass America" tour with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, TRIVIUM, EMMURE and more. Adam said, "We're working out the kinks since we've barely played it as a full group, so the more we play it, the tighter it will feel. Kids seem to be responding to it pretty well, and I think we're playing in front of a lot of new faces this tour, so it's kind of a cool reaction, anyway. A lot of people just not really knowing what to expect out of us. It's pretty cool."

Regarding how the new material came together, Adam said, "We all try to come up with ideas on our own and then bring them to the table. I'll just kind of come up with a song idea in my head, then put it together within Pro Tools and show everybody. Then all the lyric ideas kind of come last, so being without a vocalist wasn't too inhibiting of our process. We want to make sure everybody has a say even on songs that somebody completely writes from start to finish. At the end of the day, we're a five-dude band, not one-dude band."
