Killswitch Engage have released a video for their track Cut Me Loose.

The song appears on Jesse Leach and co’s seventh studio album Incarnate, which launched earlier this year via Roadrunner Records.

The band launched a Cut Me Loose video in February – but vocalist Leach has explained that it “was meant as a ‘visual aid’ and not the official video, apparently.” Killswitch Engage also teased the new shoot in September.

Speaking about the track previously, Leach said: “It’s a really personal song. There’s a reason why I reference the word ‘noose’ in the chorus – it refers to a time when I felt suicidal.

“The song is about looking back on your life, taking stock of where you are and the pain that you’ve experienced. But the song isn’t just about me. It’s a mixed message, and ‘noose’ is the key word.

“The song is pretty dark if you read the lyrics with that in mind.”

Killswitch Engage have a number of tour dates still to come in 2016, as well as a string of Australia and New Zealand dates next year.
