Killswitch Engage Have Two Wrestling Theme Songs In The Works


Killswitch Engage will be back in the world of wrestling soon with two theme songs in the works. Speaking recently on ‘Jon’s Untitled Podcast‘ (see below,) bassist Mike D’Antonio revealed the band have one track in the works for WWE that will be a cover and another track for a rival promotion. He stated:

“We’re not actually not even supposed to talk about it, but we have two wrestling theme songs in the works right now. One I believe is finished… The first one is done and then the second one we’re gonna start recording in like two weeks.

One’s for one company and then the other is for WWE. The WWE one was really complicated because it was another thing where they sent us a song and said, ‘You need to cover this as best as possible or as close as possible’ and it’s not a good song.

So we had a tough time with it and a lot of the dudes were like ‘I don’t wanna do this.’ And I get it. I understand. If it’s a really crappy song, if we gotta put our name on it, we don’t want our fans thinking we wrote something terrible. So we got this song to where we’re comfortable and we’re gonna start recording it soon.”

The band’s track “This Fire Burns” previously served as the theme song for then WWE wrestler CM Punk. As D’Antonio speaks on in the podcast, initial plans also had the band covering Living Colour‘s “Cult Of Personality” for Punk later on, though scheduling conflicts got in the way. In turn, the original version was used as his later theme. If theme songs aren’t your bag, the band have also been in the studio working on their next full-length album as well.
