Sad that you won’t be able to attend this year’s California Metalfest to see Killswitch Engage perform Alive Or Just Breathing in its entirety? Well it turns out that you won’t have to travel as far to see it after all. That’s because Killswitch Engage have announced the Alive Or Just Breathing 10th Anniversary tour.
As you probably already guessed, the headlining tour will feature the band performing their 2002 landmark album in its entirety. As an added bonus, though, support on the trek will come from Shadows Fall and Acaro. The idea of seeing KSE and Shadows Fall (who will soon embark on their own tour) on the same bill alone has us excited. Add on the fact that KSE will be performing Alive Or Just Breathing in its entirety makes this an even sweeter deal. And though they did perform on the Trespass America Festival all summer long, this will probably mark the first time many fans have heard certain songs from the album live and with Jesse Leach back in the group. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if KSE through in a few songs off the new album.
A trailer for the Winter tour can be seen above, while dates can be seen after the jump.
