The Merciless Book of Metal Lists (Howie Abrams and Sacha Jenkins) presents a very special show for the 2013 CBGB Festival in NYC. This intimate affair features Massachusetts metal giants Killswitch Engage at the 400 capacity Santos Party House on Saturday October 12th.
"This was originally going to be a secret show for our book release back in the Spring, but schedules didn't allow for it, so we stayed on it, and decided to do it for CBGB Fest," offers 'The Merciless Book of Metal Lists' author Howie Abrams. He adds, "Killswitch Engage is one of my favorite bands; one which has reinvigorated metal in recent years, and we're proud to be working with them to make this great night happen."
Killswitch Engage is about to head out on tour in the U.S. with the mighty Lamb of God, with support from Testament and Huntress, and also wanted to offer up this unique event to its most loyal fans. NYC and tri-state area fans can catch KsE on this upcoming tour at Roseland Ballroom in NYC (Oct-25) and at Starland Ballroom in NJ (Nov-22).
Additionally, proceeds from the show will be donated to The FC Foundation, an organization whose mission is to fight cancer by raising awareness and to educate about early cancer detection, ultimately putting an end to late-stage cancer diagnoses.
Support for KsE will come from NYC's heaviest ladies (and two gentlemen) Eye Ra Haze, whose atmospheric brand of metal compliments the evening perfectly.
KsE encourage fans attending the Santos show to bring proof of their purchased Roseland or Starland ticket to the merch area to claim a special KsE autographed item.
