Metal By Numbers 5/13: Killswitch Engage charts for charity

Posted by on May 13, 2020

 
Metal By Numbers is a weekly column in which we look at the top metal sellers and debuts of the week.
 
Killswitch Engage is just one of many bands that were forced to cancel their touring plans in the wake of the pandemic. Now, as previously reported, they’ve released an EP where 100% of the proceeds go to the COVID-19 Relief Fund for the Center of Disaster Philanthropy. They’re also selling face masks and the proceeds for those are donated as well. KSE has always had a fond place in the metal community and things like this are why they’ll continued to be there.
