Killswitch Engage is celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band with a new digital timeline, which is interactive and highlights moments from the band’s career. That is available on the band’s website killswitchengage.com. The band’s guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz offered the following on the project:
“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!!!”
Joel Stroetzel, the band’s other guitarist added:
“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 added:
“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.”
The band has also launched a special retro merch line to celebrate the anniversary, which you can find right here.
