Killswitch Engage Drummer Breaks Collarbone

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (07/29/13)
Killswitch Engage drummer Justin Foley recently broke his collarbone in a bicycle accident. Jordan Mancino of As I Lay Dying will be filling in on the band's international tour dates, while Foley is expected to recover in time for their North American tour. You can check out the band's new lyric video for "Always" in the replies.
We have some not so good news to announce. Our drummer Justin Foley recently had a bicycle accident and broke his collarbone. So he will not be able to do this upcoming Asia/Europe tour that begins later this week. Luckily we were able to find a replacement drummer on short notice, so we will not be canceling any dates. The replacement drummer will be our longtime friend Jordan Mancino from As I Lay Dying. Barring any unforeseen issues, Justin should be back on track in time for our upcoming North American tour with Lamb of God, which starts in late October.

Justin had the following to say: "I've never missed a show, and I'm devastated that I have to miss this tour. I'd like to apologize to the fans and everyone involved with KsE for the inconvenience I've caused. I will do everything in my power to heal and return at full strength and as quickly as possible. In the meantime, I'm positive that Jordan will kill it and the band won't miss a beat without me. I'm honored to have such a monster player fill in. See you all very soon."

Jordan had the following to add: "I'm stoked to have this opportunity to help out Justin and my brothers in KsE. A few years back, Justin filled in for me on tour while I was dealing with the passing of my father. I'm now able to return the favor with a hope that Justin will heal from his injury quickly and effectively so he can get back out here and shred as he always does for the KsE fans!"

Killswitch would like to thank our Asia and Europe fans in advance for understanding. As always, thank you so much for the support.

Replacements don't get any better than that.

In fact, almost every other music news site covered this topic at least 5 days ago.

As a drummer, I can't imagine what breaking my collarbone would mean for my playing. It would take a looooong time before he can get behind the kit.

Sucks about the injury, but the replacement made me laugh, considering AILD were supposed to be touring with them anyway.

EDIT: whoops, guess I can't read sometimes. Didn't see this wouldn't have any impact on the North American tour. Still, kinda funny.

Great news. I guess Jordan Mancino is just sitting around doing nothing at the moment, it makes sense.
