Today we are part of the start of a 3 day Hardcore festival. Without Hardcore music there is no Killswitch Engage. Even though we have a blended sound encompassing various genres at our roots and where we found our footholds was in the 1990s New England Hardcore movement. It is an honor, a pleasure and to some a challenge for us to play This Is Hardcore today. We are down one guy as Joel is home with family during a time when he is needed by them. So today we perform as a 4 piece with a unique setlist playing our heaviest rawest songs with a blend of some of the newer ones. However some songs you may expect in our set will be absent today as we focus on a set around our one guitar sound. We will do our best to play a set worthy of this event. Thanks to Ken Susi for filling in the past few shows! Thanks to everyone who was there in the beginning in 99-2000 when we played halls and shows to a handful of people in a new scene that blossomed from the guts and soul of Hardcore music. Today is certainly a more "metal line up" and we couldn't be more please to share the stage with such great bands. Respect to hardcore music and the genres it spawned. Respect to the bands and the people who have supported us through out the years! lets do this Philly!
