Killswitch Engage Detail New Album “Atonement”, Premiere “Unleashed” (Updated)


Update: June 25th, 2019 09:16 AM:

Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach has since commented on the band’s new single “Unleashed” and their forthcoming album “Atonement“, offering:

“‘Unleashed’ is about inner passion and rage coming up to the surface. 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.”
