Killswitch Put Studio On Hold

US metallers Killswitch Engage aren't in any hurry to start recording a new album - their last, 'As Daylight Dies,' is still ruling the charts. As bassist Mike D'Antonio said recently: "We are considering starting an album at the end of next year [2008] at this point. We're not gonna stop touring [As Daylight Dies] until at least the end of April, and I know we're probably going to do a run of all the festivals in Europe in June and July. After that, I believe then we're gonna start talking about writing a new record."
'Daylight' has sold more than 300,000 copies and is still moving, thanks to the group's cover of Dio's 'Holy Diver,' which is currently No. 16 on Billboard's mainstream rock chart.
