The Grammy nominated metalcore pioneers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE return with brand new single, album and UK tour announcement
Unleashed is the crushing lead track to be lifted from highly anticipated upcoming album Atonement, set for release on 16th August 2019 via new home Music For Nations (Sony Music Entertainment, worldwide ex. North America) and Metal Blade Records in North America
"'Unleashed' is about inner passion and rage coming up to the surface," said singer Jesse Leach. "We all have that wild within that often stays dormant until a tragic event triggers and awakens it. This song is about that awakening within. I feel we were able to capture something raw and intense on this song and I'm stoked for everyone to hear it! The new album Atonement is a reflection of perseverance and passion through the trials and suffering of our existence."
UK radio and TV fully embrace the power and energy of Killswitch Engage, with previous support coming from the likes of BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, Kerrang Radio, Total Rock Radio, Kerrang TV and MTV, amongst many many more…
Previous album, 2016’s Incarnate, crashed the UK Top 10 album chart upon release, landing the band their highest ever chart position this side of the pond! UK press were also in full support of release, with The Guardian rating the LP 4/5, Metal Hammer 8/10 and Kerrang KKKK
The elaborate illustration on the Atonement album cover was created by none other than talented UK based artist Richey Beckett (Metallica, Mastodon) with the band's ownMike D'Antonio handling art direction and layout duties.
