Most of the lineup has been announced for this year's annual Dirt Fest. The event will be held Saturday, Aug. 9, at Birch Run Expo Center in Birch Run, Mich., and Killswitch Engage will headline (watch Banana 101.5's announcement video above).
Killswitch Engage are rocking as strong as ever with frontman Jesse Leach returning to the band, but the seeds of the reunion may have been planted much sooner with guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz playing with Leach in the band Times of Grace. With Killswitch returning in a major way, Leach has addressed the status of his and Dutkiewicz's other band in a new Q&A video he's posted online.
You'd be hard pressed to find anyone happier for a second chance than Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach, who truly seems to be enjoying his return to the band. But things were not always so rosy for Leach, especially during his first go around with Killswitch.
Within Temptation are gearing up to release their new album, 'Hydra,' on Jan. 31, and a new trailer has surfaced teasing the record. The video, seen above, features a portion of their new song 'Dangerous,' which boasts a guest appearance by former Killswitch Engage singer Howard Jones.
2013 has been a great year for Killswitch Engage. It's the band's first full year with vocalist Jesse Leach back in the lineup, and with Leach, Killswitch released 'Disarm the Descent' and embarked on some awesome tours. To cap off the year, Killswitch Engage have been nominated for a 2014 Grammy, with Leach announcing his excitement in a press release.
Since the release of their new album ‘Disarm the Descent,’ Killswitch Engage have been touring nonstop. New York City fans will get a special treat on Oct. 12 when the major metal act plays an intimate show at the tiny Santos Party House as part of the second annual CBGB Festival.
Although Jesse Leach has been killing it with Killswitch Engage ever since his return to the band last year, it's safe to say that the voice of Howard Jones is sorely missed in the rock world. Jones left Killswitch Engage so he could manage his Type 2 Diabetes more efficiently, among other reasons. He has been jamming with his old math core band Blood Has Been Shed, but now it's been reported that Jones is working on yet another project with members of All Shall Perish and Devolved.
