Justin Foley began playing drums in 1989, but did not receive any formal musical training until he entered the University of Connecticut in 1995 as a music performance major with an emphasis on percussion. After UConn, he continued his studies at the Hartt School of Music, earning a masters degree in percussion performance in 2001. Justin's performance resume began with local CT symphony orchestras, and from 1994-2001 Justin performed with recording artists â€œRed Tideâ€, releasing two albums on their label, Encrypted Records. His next move was joining Ferret Records artists â€œBlood Has Been Shedâ€ and spending time with them on two US tours and in the studio recording their album â€œSpiralsâ€ in 2003. And most recently, Justin has joined the Massachusetts-based metalcore band Killswitch Engage, and just in time to co-headline the MTV2 Headbangers Ball Tour. With the release of their forthcoming album titled â€œAs Daylight Diesâ€, KSE has proven to be one of the most influential and inspirational forces in modern music. Currently, Justin is a member of both â€œKillswitch Engageâ€ and â€œBlood Has Been Shedâ€, and he continues to perform with Connecticut-area symphonies when he is not on the road.
