Killswitch Engage Premiere New Song and Video, “Hate by Design”
Am I crazy, or is Killswitch Engage’s new single, “Hate by Design,” their best song in ages? No joke: not sure they’ve written anything this kick-ass since 2006’s As Daylight Dies. It’s not that they’ve changed the now-well-worn KSE formula — it’s just that this is probably the best possible version of that formula. The guitars — so heavy! The vocals — so catchy! And that guitar solo!!! I’m into it.
Check out “Hate by Design” via the below video and see if you agree. The song will appear on KSE’s new album, Incarnate, which comes out March 11 on Roadrunner. The band kicks off a tour that same month, which will include five shows in NYC. Get the dates here (NYC) and here (everywhere else). And don’t forget to check out our recent video interview with vocalist Jesse Leach, ya heard?
