The rumors were indeed true! Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive are hitting the road for a co-headlining tour, and BONUS – After the Burial are coming along too.
The metalcore titans just made the announcement official, kicking off on April 18 in San Francisco and running through May 16 in Milwaukee. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, December 21 at 10am local time.
Both bands are quite stoked to be heading out:
"After having the pleasure of destroying stages all over Australia with the Parkway guys just over a month ago, we couldn't be more stoked to share the stage with them once again, this time in the States," said KsE frontman Jesse Leach. "Parkway Drive puts on an incredible live show and we are excited to combine forces and bring the energy every night to a town near you. I am absolutely certain fans of both bands are in for a hell of a time. This will be one for the memories for sure — let's rage!"
"This co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage is a landmark for Parkway Drive in North America," said Parkway Drive's frontman Winston McCall. "Having smashed our way across the land for over a decade now, it is a humbling and defining moment to be sharing this slot with true heavy metal icons and personal heroes. We have always aimed to maintain the highest standard of energy, connection and entertainment at our shows, a standard that has been set and maintained by KSE their entire career. The concept of how epic this tour will be is mind blowing to me. Bring on the insanity!"
