Mike D’Antonio from Killswitch Engage is one of the coolest cats I’ve ever met. He’s a righteous dude, who slapped bass for Overcast and also plays in Death Ray Vision. He’s just a great guy with a great sense of humor. I’d set him up with some of my single friends, only he’s married.
In a new interview, Mike spoke about Death Ray Vision and the new Killswitch Engage album. Mike said Killswitch needed “a break. Badly. Now, a year later, it is time to kick things in gear again. Currently, everyone is individually writing demos for the next Killswitch Engage record. There is no release date yet, but I would assume it will be out early 2012.”
Mike then spoke about the shows Killswitch did last year with old singer Jesse Leach.
“It was amazing,” he says. “There was a certain charm to that incarnation of Killswitch Engage, and it brought back a rush of cool memories. Those songs are fun to play, and Jesse was the cherry on top.”
Could it happen again?
“We have been discussing a big Mass Metal type show (or shows) including all our friends. There is a good chance it will happen as long as the touring schedules jive.”
No word on what frontman Howard Jones’ status with the band is, after he allegedly knocked up a porn star and sent out a letter to every chick he’s fucked over, apologizing for his actions. I still want a copy of that letter. Come on, girls — stop keeping it to yourselves.
