KILLSWITCH ENGAGE will release new digital single 'The Arms Of Sorrow' on June 4 to coincide with their main stage performance at the Download Festival on June 10. Taken from latest album 'As Daylight Dies', the band recently premiered the new video for the track exclusively on MySpace. Watch it here.

Following guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz's back surgery in January, requiring some months of recovery, Killswitch Engage regret that he will not be joining them at Download this year. Instead, they will perform with Pat Lachman (Damageplan) joining them on guitar. Lachman has been filling in with KsE in the USA and the band are delighted he is able to help them out in the UK as well. He will also play guitar at their make-up Bristol Academy show (support: Sanctity) on June 6 and at Belfast's Balmoral Hall on June 8 (with Machine Head/Chimaira).

Adam D sends this note: "Hey guys. I'm pretty bummed that I won't be able to make it across the pond and indulge in the fine brews and meat sandwiches of Europe this summer. Though I'm feeling tons better I really need to get further rest, drink more protein shakes, and flex in the mirror while listening to Night Rangers' greatest hits. I need to be in top form for the Warped Tour here in late June. I'll definitely be seeing you guys on the next run though! Much love and God bless!"

In other KSE news, bassist Mike D'Antonio's signature model recently went on sale from Ibanez. Mike says: "I wanted to base my signature model after one of my favorite basses: the SRX700. My only requirement was that it needed to look even tougher and more metal (than your ma's kettle). The MDB has a simplified control layout I prefer, the great SRX pickups, and a customized graphic I designed. The bass is HUGE sounding, comfortable to play, and looks killer. What more could you want?"
