Killswitch Engage have announced that they will release their eighth album, ‘Atonement’, on 16 Aug. They’ve also released the first single from it, ‘Unleashed’.

“‘Unleashed’ is about inner passion and rage coming up to the surface”, says frontman Jesse Leach. “We all have that wild[ness] within [us] 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”.

Of the album, he adds: “The new album ‘Atonement’ is a reflection of perseverance and passion through the trials and suffering of our existence”.
