Killswitch Engage has released a video for the song “The Signal Fire” from its new album “Atonement” (read Live Metal’s review), out now via Metal Blade Records. Current and former KsE singers Jesse Leach and Howard Jones trade vocals in this performance clip.
Watch the video, directed by the band’s longtime collaborator Ian McFarland (The Godfathers of Hardcore, Meshuggah), below.
“This video is a demonstration of solidarity and unity,” Leach said. “This is for the fan,s and this is our testimony to all who see this video. In these times we live in, I believe this is an important message—not just for us as a band and our fans but for all of humanity. This is a call for compassion and understanding! There is strength in unity.”
“The making of the video was a great experience, as well,” Leach continued. “Just all of us guys hanging out and having fun together. Ian McFarland did a hell of a job capturing the vibe and energy of our performances.”
“It was another silly day at the office,” Jones said. “Good food, lots of wrestling talk and hanging with the boys is a great way to spend the day and get a little work done. Shout out to Ian McFarland for making everything painless at the shoot. The day was all smiles—with a hint of metal.”
