KILLSWITCH ENGAGE Release Acoustic Performance of "We Carry On"

Killswitch Engage, much like the rest of us, are in quarantine and due to their canceled tour, they wanted to give fans something special. The group recorded an acoustic version of the track "We Carry On" from their 2016-released album Incarnate.

"This song is a deep one for me," explains frontman Jesse Leach. "When I wrote the lyrics, it was originally based off of struggles in a tumultuous, abusive relationship. Little did I know how significant it would eventually be as it has relevance during this strange time of quarantine and uncertainty. For me, it has turned into an anthem, of sorts, about perseverance. While working on this version, it really struck me how much I felt the lyrics in a different light. As dark and difficult as things can get, we all have this inner power to persevere and pull through. I feel that the desperation and the melancholy of this song are balanced by a ray of hope that runs through it all."

Killswitch launched a face mask, that you can purchase here. All profits from sales of these face masks will be donated to NIVA (National Independent Venue Association).
