Massachusetts metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE will play a special intimate show at the 400-capacity Santos Party House in New York City on Saturday, October 12 as part of the 2013 CBGB Festival. The concert is being sponsored by "The Merciless Book of Metal Lists" authors Howie Abrams and Sacha Jenkins.
"This was originally going to be a secret show for our book release back in the spring, but schedules didn't allow for it, so we stayed on it, and decided to do it for CBGB fest," says Abrams.
"KILLSWITCH ENGAGE is one of my favorite bands — one which has reinvigorated metal in recent years — and we're proud to be working with them to make this great night happen."
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE is about to head out on tour in the U.S. with the mighty LAMB OF GOD, with support from TESTAMENT and HUNTRESS, and also wanted to offer up this unique event to its most loyal fans. New York City and tri-state area fans can catch KILLSWITCH ENGAGE fans on this upcoming tour at Roseland Ballroom (October 25) in New York City and at Starland Ballroom (November 22) in Sayreville, New Jersey.
Proceeds from the Santos Party House 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.
Tickets will be on sale Tuesday, October 8 at 10 a.m. via Ticketweb.com. All tickets are $25. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and showtime is 7:15.
Santos Party House is located at 96 Lafayette Street and is easily accessible by subway.
