Posted by on June 23, 2020

 

Killswitch Engage turn 20 years old and celebrated by making a digital timeline on their website that goes into detail about the band’s career and documents pivotal and memorable moments in their history. The timeline is clickable and consists of vintage posters, live photos and fan tattoos, creating a digital Killswitch Engage museum. The band also introduced a new line of retro merch, which can be found here. Guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz reminisced about going on their first tour:

“I’ll never forget when we first started touring and I had to quit my day job to give it a go. I remember thinking, ‘Just try it for a year, that way you’ll have no regrets when it doesn’t work out, and you can go find a new job.’ 20-plus years later, here we are, and it’s been an amazing ride. I’m so grateful to our fans for letting us continue to do this…THANK YOU, KsE FANS EVERYWHERE!!!”

Guitarist Joel Stroetzel talked about rehearsing in his parents’ basement:

“It’s hard to believe KsE has been going for so long. We’re gettin’ old! We hope you all enjoy the photos, as they have definitely brought back a lot of memories for us! It seems like only yesterday we were playing VFW halls in Western Mass and rehearsing in my parents’ basement!”

Bassist Mike D’Antonio expressed his excitement as well:

“Looking back at what KsE has seen and done in 20 years is nothing short of mind-blowing to me. How a little band from Massachusetts could tour the world for this long is beyond me. A lifetime of exciting moments and amazing memories… I would not trade it for the world.”
