    Biography

    Killswitch Engage is an American metalcore band from Westfield, Massachusetts formed in 1999 after the disbanding of bands, Overcast and Aftershock. Bassist Mike D’Antonio collaborated with Aftershock guitarist, Adam Dutkiewicz who switched to drums and recruited guitarist Joel Stroetzel from Aftershock and vocalist Jesse Leach from Nothing Stays Gold to form Killswitch Engage. The band’s name came from an episode of the TV series, The X-Files, entitled “Kill Switch,” after writer William Gibson titled the episode after meeting the industrial band Kill Switch…Klick. They recorded and released their self-titled debut in 2000 and although it was not commercially successful, it attracted the interest of Carl Severson, who worked at Roadrunner Records at the time. Realizing that Roadrunner had the resources to promote and distribute Killswitch Engage releases, the band accepted a signing offer, declining several others from smaller labels at the time. The band went on to issue 7 releases with Roadrunner from 2002 through 2016. They initially rose to fame with their 2004 release, The End Of Heartache, which peaked at number 21 on the Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA in 2007 for over 500,000 shipments in the U.S. The title track, “The End of Heartache” was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2005 for Best Metal Performance and they released a live DVD “(Set This) World Ablaze” in the same year. The band played the Reading and Leeds Festivals in August 2006, having already played Australian dates without Dutkiewicz, who was suffering from back problems and needed surgery. In May of that year their song “This Fire Burns” was released on the WWE Wreckless Intent album. The track was intended to be the new theme song for WWE wrestler, Randy Orton, however it was scrapped and later became the theme song for the WWE Judgement Day 2006 pay-per-view special. The song was later released as “This Fire” on the special edition of the band’s third Roadrunner studio album, “As Daylight Dies.” Recorded in 3 months, “As Daylight Dies,” was released on November 21, 2006 and peaked at number 32 on the Billboard 200 chart with 60,000 sales in its first week. The album proved to be one of the band’s biggest. It entered the Australian albums chart at number 29. Mixed by Dutkiewicz, the album received mostly positive reviews at the time. Thom Jurek at All Music Guide called it “a top five metal candidate for 2006 for sure.” Decibel Magazine contributor, Nick Terry, said “To call As Daylight Dies addictive would be an understatement.” “That it outdoes its already impressive enough predecessor could almost go without saying.” A year later, the album had sold more than 500,000 units in the US. The album’s first single, “My Curse,” peaked at #21 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and is featured in the video games Sleeping Dogs, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, Burnout Dominator and Burnout Paradise. The song “Arms Of Sorrow” peaked at #31 on the same chart. The band’s cover of Dio’s “Holy Diver,” originally recorded for a Kerrang! compilation, peaked at #12 on the Mainstream Rock charts and was finally included in the deluxe edition of the album as a bonus track. KSE has performed at festivals such as Soundwave, Wacken Open Air, Reading and Leeds Festivals, Ozzfest, Download Festival, Rock On The Range, Rock Am Ring, Mayhem Festival, Monsters Of Rock, Pointfest, Knotfest and Heavy MTL. The band has sold over four million records in the U.S., and has been considered notable within the New Wave of American Heavy Metal and has also been considered one of the earliest leading forces of the metalcore genre.

    Biography

    William Reese Owsley III was an American singer and songwriter. His two solo albums won critical acclaim and his debut album was nominated for a Grammy. He was a record producer, a recording engineer and the guitarist in Amy Grant’s touring band. Owsley began playing guitar at age 9 and was a fan off Kiss, Todd Rundgren and could play Eddie Van Halen and Steve Morse licks note for note. In his later years he became more influenced by the Beatles, Chet Atkins, Jimi Hendrix and Robert Johnson. Prior to developing his own band and solo work, Owsley was in the Judson Spence band and appeared in several of his MTV videos which landed him 14 label offers when living in Nashville in the mid-1980s. He declined an offer to become Amy Grant’s touring guitarist in the late 80s, encouraged by Nashville producer Scott Siman to pursue his own career at the time. Together with Millard Powers, he founded the power pop group, The Semantics with Jody Spence and Zac Starkey (Ringo’s son). The band could not find it’s footing in the US and were eventually dropped. Afterwards, Owsley agreed to tour with Amy Grant as her guitarist and did so for 16 years straight until his death. Through his work with Grant and producer Mutt Lange, he was introduced to Shania Twain. Over the years, he would tour with her as guitarist and harmony singer, with appearances on many national tv shows and awards programs. During the 1990s he also worked with Vince Gill, the Neville Brothers, Vanessa L. Williams and Wynonna to name a few. With the money he made on tour with Grant and Twain he installed a studio in his home in 1998 which led to the release of his self-titled solo album distributed by Not Lame Recordings. Doug Morris of Universal picked it up and proposed it be re-recorded but Owsley insisted it simply needed to be remixed by Tom Lord-Alge, Bob Clearmountain or Andy Wallace. Tom Lord-Alge signed on and the “Owsley” album got re-released on March 23, 1999 on Giant Records. Many of the songs on the album are about Anniston, Alabama, where he was born and lived until 21. The first single didn’t catch on, but “I’m Alright” later scored a minor hit. Recorded almost entirely on a vintage Studer A-80 (2-inch 16 track tape machine) in his home studio in Nashville, it garnered him a Grammy Award nomination for Best Engineered Album. The album would be labeled one of the best pop records of the 1990s. During the ensuing tour, he among others joined the Pat McGee Band, and Fountains of Wayne, whose bassist Adam Schlesinger Owsley recorded with in later years. The 2000s were dominated by session work as a backing guitarist, mandolin player, bassist and keyboardist. He among others recorded with Faith Hill, Michael McDonald, Natalie Grant, David Phelps, James Ingram, Rodney Crowell, and Kenny Loggins. Owsley tragically took his own life on April 30, 2010. In 2011 Vince Gill released the song, “Threaten Me With Heaven,” which was co-written by Owsley and Amy Grant. It was nominated for the 2012 Grammy Awards in the category of Best Country Song, which according to Gill is “a lasting tribute to Owsley” and was performed at his funeral.

    Biography

    The Dresden Dolls are an American musical duo from Boston. Formed in 2000 the band consists of Amanda Palmer (lead vocals, piano, keyboards, harmonica and ukulele) and Brian Viglione (drums, percussion, guitar, bass and backing vocals). The Dresden Dolls are a dark cabaret band. Their piano-and-drum focused rock music, incorporated into alternative rock song structures with piano replacing rhythm guitar has seen them be categorized as piano rock. Palmer has cited her influences as Laurie Anderson, Kate Bush, Bauhaus, The Cure, Robyn Hitchcock and Nick Cave to name a few. After forming in 2000, the duo gained a cult following as they would wear dramatic make-up and fancy clothing that pushed their cabaret/theater aesthetic. They encouraged fans to become involved in their shows in which performance art became integral to their performances. Palmer says the band name was “inspired by a combination of things,” including the firebombing of Dresden, Germany, and the porcelain dolls that were a hallmark of pre-war Dresden industry; an early song of the same name by The Fall; and a reference to the V.C. Andrews novel “Flowers In The Attic,” where the protagonists are called “the Dresden Dolls.” Their self-titled debut album was released in 2003, recorded and produced by Martin Bisi (Swans, Sonic Youth) at the Old American Can Factory in Brooklyn after the band were signed to Roadrunner Records by David Bason. Two sings of the album ranked in the Triple J Hottest 100 in 2004. In 2003 they were crowned the winners of Boston’s long running WBCN Rock & Roll Rumble. In 2005 the duo supported Nine Inch Nails on tour. Their second studio album, “Yes Virginia,” was released on April 18, 2006. Over the summer of that year, the duo performed at South By Southwest, Bonnaroo, Britain’s Reading and Leeds Festivals, and Lollapalooza, in addition to touring with Panic! At the Disco as their opening act. On her “There Will Be No Intermission” Tour in 2019, Palmer announced that the Dresden Dolls will be recording and releasing a new album in 2020.
