Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive are heading out on the road together.
The bands announced Monday that they will embark on the co-headlining “Collapse The World Tour” on April 18 in San Francisco, CA. According to a news release from Metal Blade Records, KsE’s new label home, the tour is scheduled to run through May 16 in Milwaukee, WI and feature performances in cities, such as Houston, TX; Rockingham, NC and Detroit, MI.
After The Burial will serve as support on various dates. Revolver magazine is serving as the tour’s title sponsor.
Killswitch Engage front man Jesse Leach said in a recent interview that the band is looking forward to touring with Parkway Drive again.
“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,” Leach said. “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!”
Parkway Drive front man Winston McCall echoed Leach’s sentiments.
“This co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage is a landmark for Parkway Drive in North America,” McCall said. “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!”
