‘The Signal Fire’, the new music video from Massachusetts metallers Killswitch Engage, can be seen below. The song, which features a guest appearance by former Killswitch Engage singer Howard Jones, is taken from the band’s new album, “Atonement”, which was released on August 16 via Metal Blade Records in the U.S. and Sony Music Entertainment in the rest of the world. The electrifying performance clip was directed by the band’s longtime collaborator Ian McFarland (“The Godfathers Of Hardcore”, Meshuggah).
“This video is a demonstration of solidarity and unity,” says Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach. “This is for the fans and this is our testimony to all who see this video. In these times we live in, I believe this is an important message — not just for us as a band and our fans but for all of humanity. This is a call for compassion and understanding! There is strength in unity.”
Leach continues: “The making of the video was a great experience as well. Just all of us guys hanging out and having fun together. Ian McFarland did a hell of a job capturing the vibe and energy of our performances.”
“It was another silly day at the office,” adds Jones. “Good food, lots of wrestling talk, and hanging with the boys is a great way to spend the day and get a little work done. Shoutout to Ian McFarland for making everything painless at the shoot. The day was all smiles — with a hint of metal.”
