KILLSWITCH ENGAGE To Release 'Alive Or Just Breathing' Vinyl, 'Alive Or Just Brewing' Beer

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's "Alive Or Just Breathing" (Roadrunner) was released on May 21, 2002 and has since secured its reputation as a modern classic, as noted by its election to Decibel's elite Hall Of Fame canon. The record celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. The band, which released its most recent album, "Incarnate", in March 2016, is commemorating the occasion with an 180-gram black vinyl version of the album that drops on May 12.

Fans can pre-order the vinyl here; there are 15-year anniversary merch bundles also on sale.

Additionally, a limited-release beer, cleverly dubbed "Alive Or Just Brewing", will be released in conjunction with the vinyl. The beer is available in select markets, including Tampa, New York City, and the Cigar City Brewing Tasting Room. More info can be found here.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE is scheduled to play The Paramount Theatre on May 5 in Long Island, New York as part of "The Killthrax Tour", a co-headlining bill with ANTHRAX that also features THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and CODE ORANGE as support. The vinyl will be available for purchase on tour beginning that evening. Also, the "Alive Or Just Brewing" beer will be on tap for the show so fans can properly celebrate the anniversary and Cinco de Mayo.

The "Alive Or Just Brewing" bottle features the signature artwork of KILLSWITCH ENGAGE bassist Mike D'Antonio on the label. The beer is a New England-style IPA, is loaded with Citra, Mosaic, Motueka and Neslon Sauvin hops, and uses white wheat and flaked oats to add additional body and a slight haziness resulting in a full, juicy hop experience. What better beer style to celebrate the New England band's aggressive and innovative brand of metal than an aggressive and innovative take on a New England-style IPA.
