Killswitch Engage launched Atonement in 2019 and, regardless of speaking a few new document, has not but introduced a follow-up. So what is the cope with the delay? Based on Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach in an interview with Primordial Radio, the band is de facto cracking down on high quality management and it is making the entire course of transfer loads slower.
“The album is… taking loads longer than, I believe, any of us anticipated, as a result of there’s loads of high quality management occurring. And ensuring that it is contemporary; we’re not repeating ourselves. In order that course of has been slightly arduous however I believe mandatory as a result of we do not wanna put out one thing that persons are gonna go, ‘Oh, yeah. One other Killswitch document. No matter.'”
Which is sensible – cranking out a document each two years simply to remain on that schedule is dumb if it is all gonna be a mid-tier music. So the place is Killswitch Engage when it comes to writing the brand new document? Lengthy story quick, they’re nonetheless revising all the things.
“We’re solidifying loads, however there’s nonetheless some back-and-forth and taking a look at elements and rewriting the music. After which I am revisiting loads of the lyrics. I’ve really rewritten a bunch of stuff. ‘Trigger all of us received collectively and had a gathering, and all of us simply sort of gave our enter on all the things, and I took notes. It is the primary time, actually, I believe we have executed that. However, once more, I do imagine that it’s a necessity at our stage in our profession to essentially simply sort of get all of our heads collectively to make it possible for this document is gonna be what all of us really feel is an effective illustration of who we’re proper now.”
So keep tuned! Although possibly not this yr – seems like we’re in for a barely longer haul with Killswitch Engage this time round.
