Alive Or Just Producing? Brendan O'Brien to man the boards for Killswitch Engage album

This just in

For the first time Killswitch Engage are to use a producer outside of the band - Brendan O'Brien (AC/DC, Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine, Bruce Springsteen, Stone Temple Pilots amongst many others) will take on the role for their forthcoming fifth album.

But there's a catch - a good one…

Guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz will be co-producer - fair enough considering he's a talented producer in his own right who's taken on the duty for all of Killswitch's previous albums, as well as two superb Unearth albums amongst others.

The band will spend the winter recording the album with a release tentatively planned for Spring 2009.
