History in the making

Posted on February 12, 2008

So, Killswitch Engage’s latest release – The End Of Heartache – is officially one week old. And though their first release on Roadrunner (2002’s Alive Or Just Breathing) has already made its mark, The End Of Heartache makes Roadrunner history after 7 days. How so? The End Of Heartache is Roadrunner’s 4th highest US chart debut (#21, behind only Slipknot’s Iowa and Nickelback’s Silver Side Up and The Long Road). The End Of Heartache is Roadrunner’s 8th highest sales debut (behind only the above three mentioned albums, along with Coal Chamber’s Chamber Music, the Resident Evil soundtrack, Type O Negative’s World Coming Down, and Soulfly’s Primitive….rounding out the top 10 – for those of you curious – is Fear Factory Digimortal and Sepultura Roots. But you know what? This has nothing to do with Roadrunner, and everything to do with Killswitch Engage, and another great piece of work from them. If you have yet to check out this release, you can do soHERE and also check them out on tour with Chimaira, God Forbid and Shadows Fall from June 8th. See the TOUR section for more details. Killswitch Engage ‘The End Of Heartache’ is in stores now!
