Killswitch Engage Guitarist Joel Stroetzel Leaves Tour Due to Family Emergency


The PRP is reporting that Killswitch Engage guitarist Joel Stroetzel has left the band’s current European tour due a family emergency. The site didn’t specify a source for this information and the band’s social networks haven’t posted about it as of press time, but The PRP has an excellent track record when it comes to these sorts of things.

The band’s production manager Josh Mihlek is said to be filling in at the tour’s remaining shows in Vienna and Prague. Mihlek also performs with Killswitch frontman Jesse Leach in hardcore band The Weapon.

Whatever it is that drew Stroetzel back home on such short notice, we wish him all the best sorting it out.
