Killswitch Engage Unveil Visually Intriguing ‘Always’ Lyric Video
Their album ‘Disarm the Descent’ was released in April, and now Killswitch Engage have revealed the lyric video for the track ‘Always.’
‘Always’ is probably the most accessible song on ‘Disarm the Descent.’ It’s a power ballad with mostly melodic singing. There are some harsher background vocals, but the sentiment of the song is on the softer side as well.
‘Disarm the Descent’ features the return of vocalist Jesse Leach after a 10 year absence. In an interview with Noisecreep, Leach talked about why he wanted to rejoin the band. “I told them that I didn’t know if I was that guy right now,” said Leach. “I was working a job still and had Times of Grace as my thing that I really wanted to pursue. I wasn’t sure if I could sing somebody else’s material and really feel it and put my heart into it.”
“After some really thinking and when I heard via a press release that they actually, officially parted ways with Howard [Jones] and they were going to hold auditions,” Leach continued. “When I saw the word ‘audition’ it hit me that somebody else could step in and try to be the singer. It didn’t sit right with me. I realized that maybe I should some give it a shot then.”
The band is currently on tour in Asia, but only a few days before they were set to go overseas, drummer Justin Foley suffered a broken collarbone in a bicycle accident. Luckily, Jordan Mancino from As I Lay Dying was able to fill in and Killswitch did not have to cancel any shows.
