‘Killswitch Engage’ To Perform Entire ‘Alive Or Just Breathing’ Album At ‘California Metalfest VI’


Massachusetts metallers Killswitch Engage will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their landmark release, 2002’s genre-defining “Alive Or Just Breathing”, by performing the entire album during their headlining set at the California Metalfest VI, set to take place on Saturday, November 24 at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, California.

Ash Avildsen, founder of California Metalfest, had this to say: “‘Alive Or Just Breathing’ is one of the most important and timeless albums for this era of heavy music. Killswitch Engage‘s special headlining set combined with the rest of the lineup is going to make for an incredible day of metal and memories. Having all these bands in the same place on one day is really exciting both as a fan and as a festival producer.”

WWE superstar “Mankind” Mick Foley will host the festival, along with several other stars who will be doing signings and appearances. There will also be many carnival style prize games where fans can win special, limited-edition band merchandise and memorabilia instead of stuffed animals. California Metalfest VI promises to be much more of an experience than just a day filled with great music.

As I Lay Dying
Asking Alexandria
Black Veil Brides
Bleeding Through
Bless The Fall
