Killswitch Engage have completed a retrospective picture series detailing highlights from their career since forming in 1999, which they have slowly been posting to their Instagram page over the last few weeks.

The band made one post for each year from 1999-2019, complete with anecdotes about lineup changes, memorable shows, video shoots and more.

It's a simple but endearing concept, and a fantastic look into the Killswitch Engage story. Here they are presented in chronological order:
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

2007 - “Holy Diver” video shoot...Shot in Northern California Vineyard country, this video was shot at a castle with perfect medieval ambiance. I remember we started filming in early morning in full “plastic armor” and sweatpants. As the day went on, there were more and more shots I was needed for, and the sun got hotter and hotter. Around the time I was supposed to “kiss” the “queen”, I was already delirious with heat stroke. There was nothing you could do but laugh at the situation, and how funny we all looked in our costumes. This photo shows the final scene shot that day… at 2 AM the following day actually… I was out of my mind, and just wanted it to be over. It was a fun one, but not something I’d repeat. - Mike

2010 - Jesse Performs With Band Again...Rejoining the band for those 4 shows was unreal. I had to take time off from my job at the time and I was honestly nervous on how I would be received. The sound the crowd made when I stepped out on that stage was crazy. Those four shows carried me for weeks after. I had such fun and really felt this real sense of acceptance and love I didn't expect from the band and fans. as much fun as it was to be on stage, I had a lot more fun being backstage and riding the bus. It was my first time ever riding a tour bus so I was like a kid messing with the lights and switches. It was hard to clock back in to my regular job after that long weekend. - Jesse

2012 - Jesse Rejoins KsE...I remember being driven up to this photo shoot a day or so after quietly returning back to the band. It didn't feel real. My mind was racing as to what would happen next. I had an entire album to write and shows booked in the coming weeks. I remember seeing all of them just before we began the shoot and I had a moment of relief. I felt deep down this was the right move, this was meant to be. The laughter captured on this photo is genuine. We all were in such high spirits at the possibility of the future ahead. I know I was and still to this day feel that same excitement the days before a tour starts. What an extremely fortunate place I've found myself in since this day. - Jesse

2013 - “In Due Time” Video Shoot...The first video shoot from the Disarm the Descent album was honestly nothing but fun. It didn't even feel like a music video shoot, we were just hanging out with friends and there happened to be a film crew and a director there. As with anything that transpired in those first few years of my return to the band, there was an overwhelming sense of purpose, friendship and drive. Some of the best experiences of my life transpired during and around 2013. This video definitely highlights one of those days. I'm really happy with how that video turned out, it shows the true spirit of who we all are together. - Jesse
