Midwest Music Scene conducted an interview with drummer Justin Foley of Massachusetts metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE at this year's Rocklahoma festival, which was held May 23-25 at "Catch the Fever" Festival Grounds in Pryor, Oklahoma. You can now watch the chat below.
Justin joined KILLSWITCH ENGAGE in 2003 and was promptly heard on the band's 2004 release, "The End Of Heartache", with the title track earning the band a Grammy nomination and the album becoming the band's first gold record. KILLSWITCH ENGAGE has since toured the world, playing Ozzfest and Warped tours, to name a few.
In 2006, Justin's variety in his musical background, in particular with frame drums and marimba, was featured on the compilation "Drum Nation Volume 3".
Since his early years, Justin has furthered his musical education at college, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Percussion Performance from the University of Connecticut. He continued his classical training at the Hartt School of Music, earning a Master of Music in Percussion Performance.
Justin's strength lies in is his consistent rock drumming and precise sound. He plays a Yamaha Maple Absolute kit in with a 20" Bass Drum and 12" & 16" Toms and Yamaha hardware.
