Band Cancels Upcoming Shows Due To Medical Issues
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, the Massachusetts rockers announced today that they are forced to cancel their previously announced shows in late April and early May. The band states: “Earlier today we found out Jesse [Leach, vocals] needs to have surgery to repair an issue with his vocal cords. He is expected to make a full recovery and be fine for any future touring, but to avoid any future risk, we, unfortunately, have to pull off these dates now. Our intention is to postpone the headline shows in Sayreville, Louisville, Cleveland and Poughkeepsie and get back to our fans as soon as possible.
Apr. 26 – Sayreville, NJ @ Starland Ballroom
Apr. 28 – Jacksonville, FL @ Welcome To Rockville Fest
Apr. 29 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL @ Fort Rock Fest
May 01 – Louisville, KY @ Mercury Ballroom
May 02 – Cleveland, OH @ Agora Theatre
May 03 – Poughkeepsie, NY @ The Chance
May 05 – Mexico City, MEX @ Hell And Heaven Fest
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE is currently working on a new album for a tentative late 2018 release.
The follow-up to 2016’s “Incarnate” will mark the band’s third full-length effort since the return of Leach, who rejoined the group in 2012.
