Killswitch Engage Premiere New Song “I Am Broken Too”


0

Killswitch Engage have debuted a new track titled “I Am Broken Too” with a portion of the proceeds from it to go towards Hope For The Day—a suicide prevention and mental health outreach non-profit. Speaking of the track, the band’s frontman Jesse Leach commented:

“This song is very near and dear to my heart. I wanted the listener to feel the urgency, the heaviness of the topic as well as a possible connection. Many people suffer from mental illness in one form or another. I want nothing more than for people to feel like they are not alone in this struggle. There is always someone there to help, to listen, and to be there for you. Don’t lose hope and don’t let your brokenness consume you. Broken can be fixed, or at the very least, maintained. No one is alone in this fight.”

As for choosing Hope For The Day as the organization to benefit financially from the single, Leach stated:

“I personally chose Hope for the Day to be the organization we partner with for this song. I admire their tireless efforts to spread mental awareness and suicide prevention. The phrase and the hashtag #ItsOkNotToBeOk is a simple yet powerful statement. I think it coincides with #IamBrokenToo perfectly! Johnny Boucher and his organization are out spreading the powerful message of connectivity and solidarity in this fight for understanding mental health issues. I’m honored to have them on our team for this song and this movement to continue to raise awareness and keep the conversation going for mental health issues.”

The track comes from the band’s new album “Atonement“, out August 16th on Metal Blade. In addition to currently being out on the road with Clutch and Cro-Mags JM on this summer tour, Killswitch Engage have also announced an August 13th show at The Space in Las Vegas, NV and an August 14th in-store performance at Amoeba Music‘s Hollywood, CA location.
