The official music video for ‘I Am Broken Too’ the new single from Massachusetts metallers Killswitch Engage, can be seen below. The song is taken from Killswitch Engage‘s new album, “Atonement”, which will be released on August 16 via Metal Blade Records in the U.S. and Sony Music Entertainment in the rest of the world.
The band is donating a portion of the proceeds from ‘I Am Broken Too’ to Hope For The Day, a Chicago-based non-profit organization that focuses on suicide prevention by providing outreach and mental health education through the use of music and art.
“This song is very near and dear to my heart,” singer Jesse Leach explained. “I wanted the listener to feel the urgency, the heaviness of the topic as well as a possible connection. Many people suffer from mental illness in one form or another. I want nothing more than for people to feel like they are not alone in this struggle. There is always someone there to help, to listen, and to be there for you. Don’t lose hope and don’t let your brokenness consume you. Broken can be fixed, or at the very least, maintained. No one is alone in this fight.”
Leach added about the “I Am Broken Too” clip: “The video is a reflection of real-life events that loved ones have gone through. Kyle Cogan and Zack Stauffer did an amazing job of bringing it all to life. The result is a powerful video that captures the essence and desperation of the song.”
