The tour lineup was originally to include As I Lay Dying, but the band dropped off the tour after front man Tim Lambesis was arrested for allegedly trying to hire a hit man to kill his wife.
In celebration of the U.S. headline run Jesse Leach, front man of Killswitch Engage, will participate in a live YouTube chat today, Tuesday June 11th at 1:00PM ET. For the live chat Jesse will be joined by his tour mates: Levi Benton of Miss May I, John Henry of Darkest Hour, Telle Smith of The Word Alive, and Dennis Tvrdik of Affiance.
Killswitch Engage will be posting a link to the live chat on the band's official Facebook page once it is live at 1:00PM ET. Fans will then be able to join in on the live Q&A with all four vocalists and can leave questions for them in the comments section of the video post.
Grammy-nominated, Massachusetts-based hard rockers Killswitch Engage – singer Jesse Leach, guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, bassist Mike D'Antonio, guitarist Joel Stroetzel and drummer Justin Foley - have announced the first headline tour in support of new album "Disarm the Descent," which debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 and at #1 on the Hard Music Chart.

"Everyone in the Killswitch family is excited to get out on our first U.S. headlining tour in support of our new record," Leach said. "We are hitting some great cities and have a great mix of songs from every era of Killswitch as well as of course a handful of new ones."
Leach continued, "We look forward to sharing this tour with our old friends and brothers in metal As I Lay Dying. I personally have never had the chance to tour with them and I am looking forward to having such a quality band out with us to give this tour even more fire! We will also be joined by a talented and up-and-coming band Miss May I. Thanks to all the U.S. fans for your support! Our live show will be full-on energy with all of us ready to take this to a whole new level."
Bassist Mike D. concurred, saying, "We are super excited to be back out with our good buds in As I Lay Dying! They are some of our favorite dudes to hang with on the road, so assumptions are high that utter chaos shall ensue. There will be so much metal riffage -- you could build your own Carnival Cruse Ship. That's right, 'CHUGGA CHUGGA Paralysis' is surely imminent." More...
