Adam Dutkiewicz, Killswitch Engage guitarist who underwent emergency back surgery in January during their European shows, has issued the update below:
“So it's become apparent that it will be time for me to rejoin the KILLSWITCH family this summer for the Warped Tour. Yes, I am looking forward to several months filled with dirty fairgrounds, deli meat, beer farts, and endless six-packs underneath the summer sun.
“Muchas gracias to Pat [Lachman, DAMAGEPLAN, HALFORD, DIESEL MACHINE] for filling in on this last tour. He did a sweet job and we all appreciate it…we couldn't have gotten through without him. And also, thanks to all of those who participated in the 'Jerky Across The World' campaign. What started as a cruel joke to flood our A&R representative's office with jerky turned out to be a sweet outpouring of love from the KILLSWITCH ENGAGE fans. You are all too kind, my sincere thanks goes out to all of you (especially Japan…gotta love that octopus and squid jerky)!!!
“See you on Warped. God bless you guys! Long live dried meat products.”
Killswitch Engage’s latest single ‘The Arms of Sorrow’ is taken from their recent album ‘As Daylight Dies’
