Not sure if this is where I should post this...

How can I get nice clean tones while playing something with relatively high-gain, in an instant? For example, how does Killswitch Engage or All That Remains play clean interludes or intros and then the rest of the song is very distorted?

I know it's probably on a different channel but whenever I play on my clean channel I get a dirty bluesy sound if I turn the volume up. So, not sure how to get this sound...

Probably because you are using a 5 watt tube amp that breaks up fast on the clean channel. Try turning the volume down.

EDIT: You are also using a guitar with active pups, so i would also roll off the guitar volume, too.

My only concern with this is that the volume would obviously be lower. Is there some sort of pedals or something that can increase the volume or curb the sound a bit?

No, you're gonna need an amp with higher headroom if you want a perfectly clean signal to switch to.
