Killswitch Engage (opens in new tab) have released a lyric video for their new single I Am Broken Too, featuring handwritten lyrics by frontman Jesse Leach.

It’s the second track taken from their upcoming eighth studio album Atonement, which will launch through Music For Nations on August 16. The band shared the track Unleashed (opens in new tab) from the record last month.

Leach says: “This song is very near and dear to my heart. 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.”

Killswitch have also announced that they'll donate a portion of the proceeds from the song to Hope For The Day – a Chicago-based charity that focuses on suicide prevention by providing outreach and mental health education through the use of music and art.

The follow-up to 2016’s Incarnate (opens in new tab) will feature a total of 11 tracks and includes guest appearances from former Killswitch singer Howard Jones on The Signal Fire , while Testament frontman Chuck Billy guests on The Crownless King

The striking album cover was created by Richey Beckett, the UK artist who has previously worked with artists including Mastodon and Metallica.

Killswitch Engage will head out on tour across the UK and Europe throughout October and November.
