Killswitch Engage and Trivium; Two of the biggest names in mainstream metal in the last decade. Both bands have had eventful years during 2013, with Trivium hard at work on their brand new album Vengeance Falls with producer (and Disturbed frontman) David Draiman. Their hard work finally came to fruition this week as Vengeance Falls was released two days ago - so if you haven't picked up a copy yet, head to Amazon or iTunes and get your hands on it!
Killswitch Engage have had an even more eventful 2013, rejoining forces with original vocalist Jesse Leach, releasing a hugely successful album in the shape of Disarm The Descent and undertaking a successful comeback tour in the UK with Sylosis to name but a handful of events. They were also supposed to headline Hevy Festival 2013 which was sadly cancelled, but now Killswitch are returning to the UK for their biggest shows on these shores for a very long time alongside their label compadres in Trivium.

“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!”
