“When we were sketching out the plans for Metal Hammer - Trespass America Festival we wanted to bring out the bands we really like and enjoy listening too.
As we were forming 5FDP, I remember Jeremy jamming Trivium all the time, and I was (still am) a huge Killswitch Engage fan. Those bands belong to the new generation of American metal that started a new fire, and begun to pave the way to what’s the future of this genre holds. They are, our friends, and brothers in the same cause, so naturally we wanted them to be part of the Trespass trek.”
