Esce oggi “Atonement”, ottavo album dei Killswitch Engage, la popolare metalcore band di Westfield nel Massachusetts statunitense, vincitrice di Grammy Awards nel 2004, 2007 e 2014. Non solo. La band è impegnata in nobili intenti sociali ed il video di “I Am Broken Too”, secondo singolo del nuovo album, lo testimonia con grande forza.

“Atonement” viene pubblicato oggi, 16 agosto 2019, su Sony Music Entertainment. Nota – La band donerà una parte del ricavato del brano “I Am Broken Too” a Hope For The Day, una organizzazione no-profit con base a Chicago impegnata nella prevenzione del suicidio e rieducazione della salute mentale attraverso l’utilizzo di musica ed arte. Dichiara Leach: "This song is very near and dear to my heart," Leach explains. "I wanted the listener to feel the urgency, the heaviness of the topic as well as a possible connection. Many people suffer from mental illness in one form or another. I want nothing more than for people to feel like they are not alone in this struggle. There is always someone there to help,
to listen, and to be there for you. Don't lose hope and don’t let your brokenness consume you. Broken can be fixed, or at the very least, maintained. No one is alone in this fight."
