Killer Be Killed May Film Soundwave Shows, Release Footage For Free

Metal supergroup Killer Be Killed are in talks to film their forthcoming live debut at Soundwave 2015. What’s more, the band are indulging the idea of releasing the footage for free.

In a recent interview with The Metal Review, Killer By Killed member and The Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato said the band are considering filming their performances, because “who knows when this will happen again?”.

“Maybe we should film,” Puciato said. “We’re trying to figure out the logistics of putting together some sort of multi-camera angles. It’d be cool to do that shit for free, to film a bunch of it and then make some sort of high-quality live video out of it and just put it up online for free. I think that would be fucking awesome.”

Killer Be Killed, who released their self-titled debut album in May, also comprises of Soulfly frontman Max Cavalera, Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders and former The Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch. The group were added to the Soundwave 2015 lineup in late November, after being touted as a “Justice League Of Rock” by festival promoter AJ Maddah.

In his interview, Puciato revealed that Elitch, who is currently playing with fellow Soundwave act Antemasque, won’t be playing with Killer Be Killed at the festival. Instead, Ben Koller from Converge will take up sticks duties.

“I didn’t want to shuffle the band around to a shittier time slot just to accommodate Dave playing in both bands. Antemasque for Dave is a much bigger commitment, they’re playing a lot of shows all the time. If he needs to do that, that’s fine with me. Ben from Converge is a fucking animal so it’ll be cool to play with him,” Puciato said.

The singer also mentioned the band don’t yet know if they will be playing sidewaves. He also suggested the group may mess around with their songs at Soundwave. “I think a lot of people are thinking we’re just going to show up and be playing the whole album front to back. I want to make it more interesting,” Puciato explained.

“To me, what I’m really excited about isn’t just the order of songs but taking individual parts and making them longer or stripping them down or slowing them down, maybe writing new parts or tacking on new endings to songs, things like that.”

Soundwave 2015 will make its way through Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in February and March 2015. The festival will also see sets from the likes of Faith No More, Soundgarden, Incubus, Lamb Of God, Ministry, Antemasque and Gerard Way. The third Soundwave lineup is expected to be announced later today, with official set times to arrive before Christmas.
