Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive announce co-headlining 2019 US tour

Metalcore bands Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive recently announced that they will be going out on a co-headlining tour of the U.S. in spring of 2019.

The two bands have been touring together is Parkway Drive’s native Australia and they liked it so much, they want to continue on with their journey on a tour dubbed the ‘Collapse of the World Tour.’  The bands will trade off nights that they will be closing so no two shows will be exactly the same. In between show dates, they will also be performing at a number of festivals including Houston’s So What?! Music Fest and the Ufest in Mesa, Arizona. They will also be joined on a number of stops by After the Burial.

“This co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage is a landmark for Parkway Drive in North America,” said Parkway Drive vocalist Winston McCall in a statement. “Having smashed our way across the land for over a decade now, it is a humbling and defining moment to be sharing this slot with true heavy metal icons and personal heroes. We have always aimed to maintain the highest standard of energy, connection and entertainment at our shows, a standard that has been set and maintained by KSE their entire career. The concept of how epic this tour will be is mind blowing to me. Bring on the insanity!”

Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach also commented, “After having the pleasure of destroying stages all over Australia with the Parkway guys just over a month ago, we couldn’t be more stoked to share the stage with them once again, this time in the States. Parkway Drive puts on an incredible live show and we are excited to combine forces and bring the energy every night to a town near you.”

Parkway Drive will continue to support their most recent album, Reverence which was released this past May. The album hit #1 on the album charts in Australia and was in the top 10 of Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums chart. Earlier in 2018, Killswitch Engage dropped the news that they were signing to Metal Blade Records, with plans to release a new album in 2019. Though a release date has yet to be announced, the band’s social media posts have indicated that they are tracking almost two dozen songs and will eventually narrow those down for the tracklist of the upcoming album.
