Killswitch Engage and Parkway Drive have announced a 2019 U.S. co-headline tour called “Collapse the World.” The tour kicks off April 18 in San Francisco and runs through May 16 in Milwaukee, with After the Burial as support.
The bands sparked rumors of a co-headlining tour this past weekend as they were both announced for the Sunday date of “So What!? Music Festival” in Houston in April. They were also announced for April’s UFest in Phoenix, further fueling the rumors. So Killswitch Engage took to social media today to announce the rumors were indeed true.
“After having the pleasure of destroying stages all over Australia with the Parkway guys just over a month ago, we couldn’t be more stoked to share the stage with them once again, this time in the States,” said Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach. “Parkway Drive puts on an incredible live show and we are excited to combine forces and bring the energy every night to a town near you. I am absolutely certain fans of both bands are in for a hell of a time. This will be one for the memories for sure — let’s rage!”
“This co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage is a landmark for Parkway Drive in North America,” said Parkway Drive’s frontman Winston McCall. “Having smashed our way across the land for over a decade now, it is a humbling and defining moment to be sharing this slot with true heavy metal icons and personal heroes. We have always aimed to maintain the highest standard of energy, connection and entertainment at our shows, a standard that has been set and maintained by KSE their entire career. The concept of how epic this tour will be is mind blowing to me. Bring on the insanity!”
