KILLSWITCH ENGAGE Filming Video For New Song 'Strength Of The Mind'

Massachusetts metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE are filming a music video for their new song "Strength Of The Mind" with the direction team of Ian McFarland and Mike Pecci (MESHUGGAH, FEAR FACTORY). The track is expected to appear on the band's next album, tentatively due in March 2016 via Roadrunner Records. The follow-up to 2013's "Disarm The Descent" was mixed by KILLSWITCH guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, who also produced the new effort.

A couple of photos from the "Strength Of The Mind" video shoot can be seen below.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE drummer Justin Foley recently told Louder Noise that the band's next album will "definitely [be] a little different record than last time. Last time, it was really, really fast the whole way through. This one doesn't have quite the same speed to it, but has a different kind of heaviness to it, I think — a little bit of moodiness to it. I don't really know how to describe it yet."

He also talked about the new KILLSWITCH ENGAGE song "Strength Of The Mind", which the band has been performing live. He said: "I think that one is a good representation of stuff that we do. But I also think it's a song that would sound good live. It's a song that wasn't crazy, crazy fast, it wasn't crazy different from any of our stuff, so I think it was a good song to kind of ease into new material. I think live, it was the kind of thing that we could get it to sound tight fairly quickly, which is helpful, 'cause we didn't have a whole lot of time to get it ready for [the last] tour. So that kind of helped us influence picking that song."

"Disarm The Descent" sold around 48,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 7 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on April 2, 2013 via Roadrunner Records.

"Disarm The Descent" was KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's first album with Jesse Leach at the vocal helm since 2002's now-classic, genre-defining "Alive or Just Breathing".

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE contributed a new song, "Loyalty", to the mixtape for HBO's hit fantasy series "Game Of Thrones".
