Never miss another 'Killswitch Engage' show
Killswitch Engage + Trivium + Miss May I
Metal overlords and Roadrunner labelmates Trivium and Killswitch Engage are thrilled to announce they are teaming up for a string of co-headline UK shows in February.
Trivium frontman, Matt Heafy declares, "There is no question that Killswitch Engage is one of the most influential bands of the last decade. It is an honour to be able to tour with one of our personal favourite bands across one of my favourite places on Earth: the U.K!" Joel Stroetzel, guitarist for Killswitch Engage, backs him up, enthusing, "We're all very excited for the upcoming tour with Trivium! The UK has been a favourite place to play for both bands over the years, so joining forces should make for some great shows! Very psyched!"
This event takes place at O2 Academy Newcastle, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
An awesome five-piece metalcore outfit from the States. Brutal, sophisticated, melodic and very heavy, they represent the best elements of their chosen genre without ever being confined by it. Their fantastic live presence has been honed at such high profile gigs as Ozzfest. '...more addictive than crack cocaine that's been smothered in nicotine AND drenched in chocolate'- CMJ New Music Report.

Trivium's obsessive dedication has paid dividends, apparent both in the success they've achieved (high profile tours, well-received albums and plenty of press interest) and in the music itself. Theirs is a broad-minded sound that encompasses elements of thrash, death metal and even prog-rock, and one that perfectly reflects the work put into it.
Trivium tour dates
The Ohio metallers visited the UK in both December 2010 and April 2011 supporting Asking Alexandria and We Came As Romans respectively. The band have been going from strength to strength, with their latest outing taking them to Australia as main support to Parkway Drive. 'Miss May I's brand of crunching riffage is earning them a reputation as one of the leading lights of Stateside metalcore.' - Total Guitar
