We know you’re wondering, “How can a Killswitch Engage show get any better?” Especially if you’ve been pressed against the barrier up front, screaming every lyric with outstretched arms, maybe lucky enough to high-five Jesse Leach, it would seem like there’s really no topping that experience, right? Wrong!

Killswitch will partake in their first ever virtual reality concert on Monday, April 17, at 7PM CT at the House of Blues in Houston, Texas. That means fans can have a view right up front and even onstage thanks to the partnership between NextVR and Live Nation.

The VR broadcast will be free and available to everyone around the world (except China) via the NextVR app and the use of either Google Daydream or Samsung Gear VR headsets and a compatible smartphone. To download the app, head to the Oculus store (Gear VR) or the Google Play Store (Daydream). For further information about the event, click here and for instructions on how to get situated with the NextVR app, head to this location.

While Killswitch are currently on a co-headlining tour in support of Incarnate with Anthrax, dubbed the ‘Killthrax’ tour (dates here), the future looks to hold more new music for the band’s members. Adam Dutkiewicz revealed he has over a dozen songs demoed for a new Times of Grace record with Leach, while Leach also has tentative plans to start up a hardcore punk project.
