New York, NY: Fresh off their stint as one of the main stage attractions at this summer’s RockStar Energy Mayhem Fest, Massachusetts’ favorite sons KILLSWITCH ENGAGE have just announced two special shows that will occur at the end of August. The two shows close out an incredibly successful summer that saw Killswitch Engage, their fourth effort for Roadrunner, debut at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
The band will be headlining the Bay Stage at the Jones Beach Amphitheatre in Long Island, NY, along with All That Remains, Vision of Disorder and Unearth on Saturday, August 29. This appearance marks the band’s first ever show on Long Island and the event kicks off at 5 PM and features two stages.
The next day, the band will play a special tribute show, dubbed ‘Zing Fling,’ for Zing Studios at the Pearl Street Nightclub in Northampton, Massachusetts. The show’s lineup features KsE, All That Remains, Unearth, Once Beloved, Anti-Love and View of a Burning City, and is a tribute to Zing bands and celebration of Zing Studios. This show is truly a special event, as it is being held at a 700 capacity venue. All the bands on the bill have worked with the local studio. Tickets for this show are $30 in advance and $35 at the door.
