KILLSWITCH ENGAGE bassist Mike D'Antonio has told MTV's "Metal File" that the band is scheduled to enter the studio in October to begin work on its new album for a tentative spring release via Roadrunner Records. A headlining run is also in the works for March.
"I'm one of those dudes who needs to write constantly, because I really suck at writing music with a deadline," D'Antonio told "Metal File". "My brain gets fried, and I can't do anything, I just shut down completely. When we start on this next one, we'll just bring our demos to practice, and we'll listen to them, judge them and start rearranging the parts that need to be rearranged — or we just start jamming on what sounds cool."
He added that so far, the material's sounding "fast" and everything he's written for the LP "has at least one blast beat and very fast drumming, with really slow riffs."
