Killswitch Engage Debut New Song “Unleashed,” Detail Next Album

Published on:

Killswitch Engage have announced their highly anticipated eighth album, Atonement, which is due August 16th, and offered up the opening track off the record, “Unleashed.” (The LP is available for pre-order here.) You can stream the epic and very heavy “Unleashed” below, and see Atonement’s full track listing and cover artwork, which was created by acclaimed artist Richey Beckett (Metallica, Mastodon) with art direction and design by Killswitch bass player Mike D’Antonio. The band has a full slate of touring ahead, including a co-headlining North American trek with Clutch and extensive dates in European — see those below, as well.

“‘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.”

1. “Unleashed”
2. “The Signal Fire” (featuring Howard Jones)
3. “Us Against the World”
4. “The Crownless King” (featuring Chuck Billy)
5. “I Am Broken Too”
