Killswitch Engage have just shared an emotive video for their latest single I Am Broken Too, directed by Kyle Cogan and Zack Stauffer of SIMIAN.LA (A Perfect Circle, Breaking Benjamin).
"The video is a reflection of real-life events that loved ones have gone through," says singer Jesse Leach.
"Kyle Cogan and Zack Stauffer did an amazing job of bringing it all to life. The result is a powerful video that captures the essence and desperation of the song."
The Grammy-nominated band are partnering with Hope for the Day – a Chicago-based non-profit organisation that focuses on suicide prevention by providing outreach and mental health education through the use of music and art – and are donating a portion of the proceeds from the song to the charity.
"This song is very near and dear to my heart," explains Leach. "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."

The new single is taken from their forthcoming new album Atonement, which is out on August 16 via Music For Nations and available to pre-order here (opens in new tab).
Killswitch Engage are embarking on a headline tour of the UK in October. Tickets can be bought online via LiveNation (opens in new tab) and Gigs Scotland. (opens in new tab)
