The No Fear(R) Music Tour Featuring Killswitch Engage With Special Guests DragonForce, Chimaira and He Is Legend

“Live Nation and House of Blues are ecstatic,” says Kevin Morrow, Senior Vice President of Entertainment at House of Blues, “to partner with legendary clothing and lifestyle company No Fear in presenting the North American tour for one of today’s premier hard rock bands, Killswitch Engage.”

New England based hard rockers, Killswitch Engage, are fresh off the release of their successful fourth album “As Daylight Dies,” which blends the band’s unique fusion of aggression, melody, rock, and metal. With the first single, “My Curse” in regular rotation on MTV2 and garnering heavy airplay on over 60 stations around the country, the band has been on a roll. Alternative Press magazine has declared “As Daylight Dies” “an album of the year candidate,” and Spin has deemed Killswitch “…the next great metal band.”

“Since the company’s inception in 1990, No Fear has been heavily involved in motocross, surfing, skating and wake,” says Britt Galland, No Fear Vice President of Marketing. “Through our presence in these cultures, we’ve come to believe that music actually transcends all of them. In 2006, we created and it quickly became our fastest growing segment. To further establish our commitment to music, we are proud to announce The No Fear Music Tour as well as our relationships with House of Blues and the phenomenal band, Killswitch Engage. We want to roll up our sleeves and put our fingerprints all over this thing. It’s not our style to just hang a shingle on a house and take off. We want to reach out to our friends and customers, engage them, and make this the best music tour of the year.” Check out No Fear’s collection of clothing and lifestyle gear at

Known for their action-packed live show, metal masters DragonForce will perform as direct support to Killswitch. Inhuman Rampage, their US debut with Roadrunner Records, has sold close to 100,000 copies in the U.S. since its June release, following a flurry of international praise. Also on the bill are Chimaira, whose 2005 self-titled album earned the band spots in both Revolver and Decibel for one of the top albums of the year, as well as taking the band to the #1 spot on Metal/Specialty radio for a several week run. He Is Legend, a mainstay of the hard rock touring circuit, will open all dates.
