Killswitch Engage kicked off their headlining slot on the inaugural No Fear Music Tour last night to a sold out crowd at Philadelphia's Electric Factory. The band has with them Pat Lachman, known as the voice of Damageplan as well as for his guitar work with Halford and Diesel Machine, filling in for injured guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz. Dutkiewicz underwent emergency back surgery last month during Killswitch Engage's European leg and will spend the next few months recuperating. He plans to rejoin his bandmates later this spring.

In recent Killswitch Engage news, current single "My Curse" from the album As Daylight Dies hit #15 in the Active Rock format this week, and the video recently peaked at #1 on MTV2. The band, including Dutkiewicz, will be shooting a video for the follow up single, "The Arms of Sorrow," in March.

Adam is definitely the best performer of the bunch and livens the shows up with his presence as well as antics. I'm sure they'll still put on a great show with Pat.

So... Pat did a good job keeping the energy up and played everything to a dime... he seemed to have good stage presence w/ mike, howard, joel, + justin.

but the main thing that lacked was adam's voice. You may not realize how many songs its in until you see them live. And also the sound crew F*%#ed up because pat's mic was barely audible.

It was my girls first, she had her glasses broke. all in all good f***ing time even without adam.
