KILLER BE KILLED May Film SOUNDWAVE Shows For Future Release

December 16, 2014

KILLER BE KILLED, the new band comprised of Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, ex-SEPULTURA),Greg Puciato (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN),Troy Sanders (MASTODON) and Dave Elitch (ex-THE MARS VOLTA),will make its live debut as part of next year's edition of Australia's Soundwave XV festival, set to take place February 21-22 at Bonython Park in Adelaide and Melbourne Showgrounds in Melbourne and February 28 - March 1 at Olympic Park in Sydney and Brisbane Showgrounds in Brisbane.

Asked how KILLER BE KILLED's participation in Soundwave came about, Puciato told The Metal Review: "We've been trying to find time [to play shows] ever since the album came out. We knew it was going to be tough, but we never imagined it would be this tough. It was just fucking impossible all the way through 2014. I mean, right now MASTODON are touring through Europe until almost Christmas. There was no time until February/March 2015; Soundwave time."

He continued: "I remember Troy and I were talking last Soundwave as both our bands played the festival, and we were like, 'Hey, man, maybe next year we can both be on stage together.'. At the time we were completely joking. We were pretty much at the point where we thought we were never going to be able to find the time to play shows. A couple of months ago, when we found out about some time off February/March, we just said, 'Don't book any fucking shows with your other bands. Let's just do this.' It's really exciting now it's right around the corner."

Regarding whether there has been any talk of KILLER BE KILLED filming and recording its performance at Soundwave for possible release on DVD/Blu-ray and/or CD, Puciato said: "We were just talking about that too. Maybe we should film, as who knows when this will happen again. We're trying to figure out the logistics of putting together some sort of multi camera angles. It'd be cool to do that shit for free, to film a bunch of it and then make some sort of high-quality live video out of it and just put it up online for free. I think that would be fucking awesome."

KILLER BE KILLED's self-titled debut album sold around 5,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 58 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on May 13 (one day earlier internationally) via Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the CD was produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur, whose credits include work with GOJIRA, LAMB OF GOD, HATEBREED, AVENGED SEVENFOLD, ESCAPE THE FATE, P!NK and STEVE EARLE. Cover art and packaging was executed by Ryan Clark of Invisible Creature Design, the Grammy-nominated design firm whose clients include ALICE IN CHAINS, FOO FIGHTERS, CHRIS CORNELL, DEVILDRIVER, MONSTER MAGNET, WOLFMOTHER and DEMON HUNTER.
