Listen to an Unreleased Killswitch Engage Track, “Define Love”
Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach has a way with lyrics that gets at those topics we all think about but often have a tough time articulating. Or, at the very least, he’s able to distill complicated concepts down to their most easily relatable forms.
Take “Define Love,” an released track from the Incarnate sessions that Revolver just premiered, and that’ll be released as a limited 7″ on Record Store Day (this Saturday, April 16th). Here’s Leach on his inspiration for the song:
“Define Love” was written as my critique on our attempts as humans to limit love or restrict love. Whether it be political or religious agendas, love seems to be used as a way to manipulate people to think or act a certain way. Love is deeper than simple emotion or desire. It is an unexplainable spirit that defies our attempts to harness and understand it. True love in my mind is far greater than our feeble comprehension of it. We need not try to set any limitations on what defines love.
As I said up top, it’s nothing super-deep, but it just gets at something we can all relate to in a way every single person can understand.
Listen to the track below. Musically, it sounds like a Killswitch Engage song… but you already knew that.
