After several years of album anniversary tours being all the rage, the trend has seen some pushback lately with members of Soilwork and The Acacia Strain voicing their distaste for the nostalgia-driven, yet admittedly lucrative, fad. Killswitch Engage guitarist/mastermind Adam D. has now added his opinion to the discussion, echoing the sentiments expressed by Björn “Speed” Strid and Vincent Bennett that neglecting to promote new music in favor of a trip back in time is not necessarily in a band’s long-term best interests.
