Killswitch Engage Plan to Release Music Next Year
Killswitch Engage just made fans very happy when they eluded to the fact that we can probably expect some new music in 2024.
In an interview with Kerrang!, guitarist and producer Adam Dutkiewicz spills the tea:
“Yeah, we’ve been writing for quite some time now. Jesse Leach has been working out some lyric ideas and demos for the last few days, actually. We’ve got a lot of songs kind of rolling around right now. I’m thinking about getting back into the studio after this tour and getting to work, and I’m hoping we’d like to have the record done by the end of the year. But it might take a bit longer than that, so I would assume new music next year, for sure.”
In a previous interview, Leach admitted that the reason music from the band has been delayed is because they want to stay original.
“The album is… taking a lot longer than, I think, any of us anticipated, because there’s a lot of quality control going on. And making sure that it’s fresh; we’re not repeating ourselves. So that process has been a little arduous but I think necessary because we don’t wanna put out something that people are gonna go, ‘Oh, yeah. Another Killswitch record. Whatever.’”
“We’re solidifying a lot, but there’s still some back-and-forth and looking at parts and rewriting the music. And then I’m revisiting a lot of the lyrics. I’ve actually rewritten a bunch of stuff. ‘Cause we all got together and had a meeting, and all of us just kind of gave our input on everything, and I took notes. It’s the first time, really, I think we’ve done that. But, again, I do believe that it’s necessary at our stage in our career to really just kind of get all of our heads together to make sure that this record is gonna be what we all feel is a good representation of who we are right now.”
So there’s no specific promise yet, but it sounds like we can tentatively mark our calendars.
