Killswitch Engage released their new album Atonement in 2019, and then a new EP called Atonement II B-Sides For Charity in 2020. According to vocalist Jesse Leach in a Q&A on Killswitch Engage's YouTube channel, the band isn't going to even consider making another new album for at least another year. Leach notes that there's plenty of touring to do to make up for lost time, and that new records take time anyway.

"We're gonna tour as much as we can to make up lost time. We put out Atonement, and album we're all super proud of, and it just never got the love and the support it could have because we weren't able to tour on it, we weren't able to promote it. So we'll work on new music at some point next year, but we've got an album that we're all proud of, so we're gonna continue to tour on Atonement and promote those songs. So, yeah, there'll be another year or so of touring before we even consider a new album."

"I know in this day and age, everybody wants an album every six months, but we're just not that way. We put so much into these albums, I would feel disingenuous if we kept churning out records. I really need to sit and brood and think and dwell to write a good record. I don't wanna ever put out a record that we are not a hundred percent fully immersed in, in its heart and soul.

"So if you're looking for new Killswitch music, check out the B-sides for charity we did. We put out a ton of music — well, not a ton, but enough. We're just not that kind of a band that can just put out a record every year. So be patient with us. And in the meantime, if you're able to, just come support a show. We'll be touring as much as we can."
