As we gear up for the release of Killswitch Engage‘s forthcoming album Atonement (out August 16th), the boys have released their new music video for the second single ‘I Am Broken Too‘ which is a hard-hitting look at the struggles some of us face on a daily basis.
“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.”
You might remember when the song was first released, KSE announced a partnership with Hope for the Day, a non-profit organization that focuses on suicide prevention by providing outreach and mental health education through the use of music and art.
Jesse said of the partnership:
“I personally chose Hope for the Day to be the organization we partner with for this song. I admire their tireless efforts to spread mental awareness and suicide prevention. The phrase and the hashtag #ItsOkNotToBeOk is a simple yet powerful statement. I think it coincides with #IamBrokenToo perfectly! Johnny Boucher and his organization are out spreading the powerful message of connectivity and solidarity in this fight for understanding mental health issues. I’m honoured to have them on our team for this song and this movement to continue to raise awareness and keep the conversation going for mental health issues.”
