About Killswitch Engage:
Formed in 1999 out of western Massachusetts, Killswitch Engage are often credited as one of the most influential metal acts in the last 20 years. Twice Grammy-nominated, they’ve sold over 3 million records worldwide, with The End of Heartache and As Daylight Dies both certified Gold in the U.S. The band has enjoyed multiple Top 10-charting albums, with 2016’s Incarnate landing at #6 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Current Rock Albums chart, and debuting at #1 overall in Canada, #5 in Australia, and #10 in both the UK and Germany, a testament to the band’s international reach.
As co-founders of Killswitch Engage, guitarist/backing vocalist Adam Dutkiewicz, guitarist Joel Stroetzel, bassist Mike D’Antonio, and lead vocalist Jesse Leach (who returned four years ago after a decade-long absence) together with longtime drummer Justin Foley continue to make trend-resistant, timeless heavy music that feeds the soul, touches the heart, and strengthens the mind.

About Parkway Drive:
The five-piece metal band from Byron Bay, Australia formed in 2002. The band features vocalist Winston McCall, guitarists Luke Kilpatrick and Jeff Ling, bassist Jia O’Connor, and drummer Ben Gordon. For more than a decade, the band has stood at the forefront of heavy music worldwide, matching their uncompromising urgency with a powerful musicality. Parkway Drive has released six studio albums, all on Epitaph: Killing with a Smile (2005), Horizons(2007), Deep Blue (2010), Atlas (2012), IRE (2015), and Reverence (2018). The band has also released two platinum-selling DVDs, one EP, a split album with I Killed The Prom Queen, and one book.
Reverence, produced by longtime Parkway Drive sound engineer George Hadjichristou, is the band’s most sonically adventurous album and their most personal album to date. With its barrage of heart-shredding anthems, the album was closely informed by a series of tragedies the band had endured over the past few years. Reverence debuted in the US at #2 Current Hard Music, #34 Billboard Top 200 and #2 Current Rock Albums. The album debuted #1 in Australia and recently won the 2018 ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album.
Globally praised for their powerful live show, the band has had massive performances at festivals all over the world including Welcome to Rockville (US), Aftershock (US), Carolina Rebellion (US), Northern Invasion (US), Rock on the Range (US), Warped Tour (US), Montebello Rockfest (CA), Rock Am Ring (DE), Rock
