The event was directed by David Brodsky and Allison Woest for MyGoodEye.
«I am pleased we were able to finally pull this together,» says singer Jesse Leach. «I hope everyone who watches enjoys this as much as we did making it. Aside from the music, the laughter and funny moments were an equal part of the experience. The whole package really feels like a KILLSWITCH experience and we’re stoked for everyone to see and hear it.»
The streaming event will find KILLSWITCH ENGAGE performing 2019’s «Atonement» in full, along with the 2000-released self-titled album in fulll. There will be a few surprises along the way, so fans won’t want to miss the event.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE will return to the road this fall, touring with SLIPKNOT, FEVER 333 and CODE ORANGE as part of the «Knotfest Roadshow». The band will also appear at several key fall festivals.
Last summer, three singles from KILLSWITCH ENGAGE reached new sales milestones in the U.S. «My Curse» was certified platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association Of America) on September 10 for accumulating a million certified units. That same day, «The End Of Heartache» and KILLSWITCH‘s cover of the DIO classic «Holy Diver» were both certified gold for accumulating half a million units.
According to the RIAA, one equivalent song unit is equal to a single digital song sale, or 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams.
