Killswitch Engage are moving forward with their new album. Frontman Jesse Leach has already tracked a couple songs."I’ve got a couple of songs done, I’ve got a bunch to go, but I’ve got a lot of ideas," Leach told Roadrunner Records. "I listen to it every once in a while out here just to keep me familiar with it, so when I get home and attempt to finish the record, it’s still fairly fresh in my mind."
"Sonically, this is definitely – it’s got a more urgent feeling to it. It's a lot faster, there’s definitely huge melody going on, but the songs are a lot shorter. Not one song really goes over the three and a half, four minute mark. I just anticipate lyrically and vocally it to be a very urgent record. We’re at a state in this world right now where someone needs to talk about what’s going on. There’s a lot of apathy in this world, there’s a lot of really screwed-up stuff in our government and the world’s governments, and the whole class vs. class thing, the protests that happened all around the United States – there’s a lot of unrest, and I think it kinda needs to be touched upon. And it’s up to the metal community to have a voice, and that’s what I’m aiming to do with this next record – make it very important. Make it matter."
