A brand new single by the name of “Killing Time” from Reach NYC has just seen a release. You can give it a listen for yourself below. RenĂ© Mata, who fronts the alternative metal outfit, penned this single about his late friend, Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington.

An official press release mentions how a shared dinner between himself, Bennington and members of Papa Roach, P.O.D. and more saw Bennington pitching a tour that would find Linkin Park out with the likes of Limp Bizkit, Korn, Deftones, System Of A Down, Papa Roach and Reach NYC. Tragically Bennington would take his own life months after that conversation in July of 2017.

Mata said of this tribute to his fallen friend:

“The song is about my internal fight with myself after after losing a close friend. I had relapsed after 25 years of sobriety and had fallen into a massive depression after Chester passed away. The video is the chaos in my subconscious in relapse and depression. A full on war in my heart, head, and soul. Without recovery, family, and friends, I wouldn’t have made it out alive. I know the band conveyed it in their playing and recording of the song.”

The group have also signed with AFM Records are preparing to release a new album.
