Despite reports that they'd be touring this fall as one of the support acts on AVENGED SEVENFOLD's upcoming North American tour, set to kick off in November, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE will not be on the bill, according to MTV.com.
As previously reported, the cover artwork for KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's new album, "As Daylight Dies", has been posted online at this location.
Due on November 21 via Roadrunner Records, "As Daylight Dies" is the result of more than a month and a half in the studio with KILLSWITCH guitarist and one of metal's "it" producers, Adam Dutkiewicz (UNDEROATH, ALL THAT REMAINS). Dutkiewicz is also mixing the record, which will feature a dozen songs, including "This Is Absolution", "For You" and the title track.
"There was really hardly any thought put into it at all," bassist Mike D'Antonio told MTV.com. "It just came out and we hadn't written in so long that everyone had a lot to contribute. It felt more like the sessions for [2002's] 'Alive or Just Breathing', where everyone was contributing, and everyone had a say. That is more, to me, what the KILLSWITCH style is. But, it is the typical line that everyone gives you — that this is a heavier album — but it kind of is. It's definitely way heavier. There are still the melodic choruses here and there, and there's a lot to latch onto. But it's heavy."
