Grammy-nominated, Gold-selling metal heavyweights Killswitch Engage have just shared an emotive video for latest single “I Am Broken Too”, taken from upcoming album “Atonement”, due out on August 16th, via Music For Nations.

Watch the video for “I Am Broken Too” below.

The full-concept video was directed by Kyle Cogan and Zack Stauffer of SIMIAN.LA (A Perfect Circle, Breaking Benjamin) and was shot in the Los Angeles area.

“The video is a reflection of real-life events that loved ones have gone through”, says singer Jesse Leach. “Kyle Cogan and Zack Stauffer did an amazing job of bringing it all to life. The result is a powerful video that captures the essence and desperation of the song”.

The band is also donating a portion of the proceeds from the song to “Hope for the Day”, a Chicago-based non-profit organisation that focuses on suicide prevention by providing outreach and mental health education through the use of music and art.

“Atonement” is available for pre-order here.

The elaborate illustration on the “Atonement” album cover was created by talented UK-based artist Richey Beckett (Metallica, Mastodon) with the band’s own Mike D’Antonio handling art direction and layout duties.

2019 represents another turning point. The quintet — Adam Dutkiewicz (lead guitar), Joel Stroetzel (rhythm guitar), Mike D’Antonio (bass), Justin Foley (drums), and Jesse Leach (vocals) — sharpen every side of this signature sound on their eighth full-length and first for Music For Nations, “Atonement”. The vision they shared two decades ago crystallises like never before as evidenced by the first single “Unleashed”.
