Killswitch Engage began posting an array of pictures from their history to the band’s official Instagram. The band wiped its Instagram page clean and proceeded to share one image per year per day, starting with 1999 and going through 2019. It was a mere hint of what was to come…
Following that, the band unveiled a comprehensive and in-depth 20-year timeline that documents so many of the band’s memorable career milestones and storied history, with plenty of captivating images. The clickable, scroll-through timeline boasts flyers from early shows, live shots from festival appearances, and fan tattoos. It also traces major tours, video shoots, album releases, Grammy nominations, lineup changes, and beyond. The timeline functions as a digital museum that effectively tells the complete Killswitch Engage story.
Guitarist and backup vocalist Adam D recalls: “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!!!”
The band has also launched their retro merch line, where they will be offering new takes on classic Killswitch Engage designs in limited edition quantities. The initial offerings from the Killswitch Engage Retro Collection include designs from the Alive Or Just Breathing and As Daylight Dies album cycles.
