GET YOUR SNOW BOOTS READY: THE WINTER’S BEST TOUR HAS ALREADY BEEN ANNOUNCED
Greg Maki of Live-Metal.net recently conducted an interview with Killswitch Engage bassist Mike D’Antonio, in which he confirmed tentative plans for a U.S. co-headlining run with Lamb of God in December and January. Mike D. also sheds some light on guitarist Adam D.’s back injury, which has now forced him to sit out not one, not two, but two and a half recent tours:
“It was his second back surgery, and whenever there’s a back surgery, there’s chance of paralysis, there’s a chance of being in a wheelchair for the rest of your life. So going through it twice, every time he’s going to have some sort of surgery, his ratio’s gonna go down, down, down, down till he is going to be in a wheelchair. So we don’t want it to get as bad as it did in January at all. We will send him home right away. Right now, it’s just kind of a nervous, like, I hope he’s OK, I hope he’s feeling right. We’ve done everything we possibly could. We don’t let him carry anything besides his guitar. We gave him a back room in the bus where it just has this big bed so he can kinda stretch out ’cause he’s a tall guy, he’s like six-four or something. The rest is up to him.”
Yikes. Time to get that beef jerky in the mail again.
