killswitch engage parkway drive 2019 tour

Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive made our day by announcing a massive co-headlining run. The two bands will hit the road beginning next year as the tour kicks off in April.

The bands sparked rumors of a co-headlining tour this past weekend as they were both announced for the Sunday date of So What!? Music Festival in Houston in April. They were also announced for April’s UFest in Phoenix, as the PRP points out, further fueling the rumors.

Today, Killswitch Engage took to Twitter to announced the rumors were indeed true. They also revealed it will be called the Collapse The World tour and After The Burial will be opening the epic lineup:

Killswitch frontman Jesse Leach expanded on the excitement.

“After having the pleasure of destroying stages all over Australia with the Parkway guys just over a month ago, we couldn’t be more stoked to share the stage with them once again, this time in the States,” Leach says. “Parkway Drive puts on an incredible live show, and we are excited to combine forces and bring the energy every night to a town near you. I am absolutely certain fans of both bands are in for a hell of a time. This will be one for the memories for sure—let’s rage!”

Parkway frontman Winston McCall is also stoked for the tour.

“This co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage is a landmark for Parkway Drive in North America,” McCall says. “Having smashed our way across the land for over a decade now, it is a humbling and defining moment to be sharing this slot with true heavy metal icons and personal heroes. We have always aimed to maintain the highest standard of energy, connection and entertainment at our shows, a standard that has been set and maintained by KSE their entire career. The concept of how epic this tour will be is mind blowing to me. Bring on the insanity!”
