Killswitch Engage Release Acoustic “We Carry On” Performance


Killswitch Engage have released a video of a quarantined live acoustic performance of their track “We Carry On” from their 2016 album “Incarnate“. Frontman Jesse Leach said of the track:

“This song is a deep one for me. When I wrote the lyrics, it was originally based off of struggles in a tumultuous, abusive relationship. Little did I know how significant it would eventually be as it has relevance during this strange time of quarantine and uncertainty. For me, it has turned into an anthem, of sorts, about perseverance.

While working on this version, it really struck me how much I felt the lyrics in a different light. As dark and difficult as things can get, we all have this inner power to persevere and pull through. I feel that the desperation and the melancholy of this song are balanced by a ray of hope that runs through it all.”

Killswitch Engage recently put out a surprise EP titled “Atonement II B-Sides For Charity“, the proceeds from which went have been going towards the the CDP COVID-19 Response Fund.
