Hot off the press office…. Killswitch Engage, have announced the title and track listing to their highly anticipated follow up release to astounding debut ‘Alive or Just Breathing’. ‘The End of Heartache’. The album, a visceral metal experience, is set for release May 10, 2004. The album cover artwork ties in with the title and was designed by the band’s bass player, Mike D’Antonio. D’Antonio is no stranger to album cover design as he has taken on the task for the previous Killswitch Engage albums as well as for several other up and coming like-minded bands such as Shadows Fall and Unearth. The band’s multi-talented guitarist, Adam Dutkiewicz, produced The End of Heartache. Adam, now a well-known and respected producer in the genre, produced the band’s first release and is currently in the UK mixing the new album with Andy Sneap (Arch Enemy, Machine Head). The End of Heartache delivers more of the hyper-kinetic metal riffage found on Alive or Just Breathing, with even more feral drum beats and unbinding vocals. This is also the first full-length release from the band featuring Howard Jones on vocals and new drummer, Justin Foley. A few of the song titles expected to appear on the album are: “Bid Farewell”, “World Ablaze”, “When Darkness Falls”, “Rose of Sharyn”, “Declaration”, “Take This Oath”, “The End Of Heartache” and “Break the Bonds”. The End of Heartache is a grand statement of the level to which the band has risen this second album has everything that fans have enjoyed about the band in a more expanded sonic package that rises to even greater heights. Killswitch’s uncompromising approach to their music is sure to make new fans everywhere. Killswitch Engage – Mike D’Antonio (bass), Adam Dutkiewicz (guitar), Justin Foley (drums), Howard Jones (vocals), and Joel Stroetzel (guitar) – will hit the road as headliners in early May and can be expected to tour relentlessly behind The End Of Heartache in 2004.
