Killswitch Engage Strike a Balance ‘In Due Time’ – Premiere

Metal heavyweights goof around in new clip


Massachusetts metal maestros Killswitch Engage will release their new LP, Disarm the Descent, on April 2nd through Roadrunner Records. Now you can take an exclusive first look at the band’s new video for its first single, “In Due Time,” which mixes footage of the band performing the take-no-prisoners thrasher with relaxed, behind-the-scenes shots of the making of the video itself.

“I [originally had] the idea of doing a sort of a tongue-in-cheek video, as I am a huge fan of some of the early Foo Fighters videos,” vocalist Jesse Leach tells Rolling Stone. “However, when I read the treatment that [directors] Ian and Mike sent over, it was perfect. To me, this video shows the band as we are, a balanced push and pull of intense and sincere verses fun-loving, down-to-earth guys. We had our actual crew and friends in the shoot to create a natural vibe. So what you see is what we are: a band and a family that doesn’t take ourselves too seriously.”
