Killswitch Engage – No End In Sight…

Killswitch Engage is looking for its fans to help commemorate and immortalize their vast 2014 tour schedule with a very special piece of merch. The band’s regular design guru Mike D wants to see what you’ve got up your sleeve. 

Design an official T-Shirt inspired by Killswitch Engage and their insane Disarm The Descent world tour – check out more info here. One winner will receive $500 and a Killswitch Engage prize pack. 

Disarm the Descent is the sixth full length album from metal band, Killswitch Engage. The release is available for purchase here

Suggested Theme & Style Guidelines

We're looking for a powerful T-Shirt design that represents the classic aesthetic of Killswitch Engage. The shirt should capture the scope of the band's travels and should be the perfect keepsake for fans to commemorate a show or for those who missed the chance.

Killswitch Engage bassist, Mike D’Antonio, is responsible for designing all of the band's album artwork and tour merchandise. He along with the rest of the band, will personally be judging the contest. Check out some of Mike's artwork below:
