Killswitch Engage have streamed their track Define Love, which will be released as a limited-edition Record Store Day title tomorrow (April 16).

It’ll be available as a seven-inch vinyl single in participating independent record stores, with the B side covered in artwork created by bassist Mike D, and a band logo stencil included in the pack.

Frontman Jesse Leach says of Define Love: “It’s my critique on our attempts as humans to limit or restrict love. Whether it be political or religious agendas, love seems to be used as a way to manipulate people to think or act a certain way.

“Love is deeper than simple emotion or desire. It is an unexplainable spirit that defies our attempts to harness and understand it. True love, in my mind, is far greater than our feeble comprehension of it. We need not try to set any limitations on what defines love.”

Killswitch Engage will take part in a Record Store Day signing session at Newbury Comics in Leominster, Massachussets, tomorrow afternoon. They’re currently touring North America in support of eighth album Incarnate, released in March.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
