Killswitch Engage will return with their eighth album this summer, 'Atonement'.

The Massachussets metalcore heroes, who tour the US this summer, will release the follow up to 2016's 'Incarnate' on August 16. 

Following that, the band will return to Europe in the autumn, with UK shows confirmed in Norwich, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, and London, where they'll play the O2 Academy Brixton on October 20. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on June 28.

The record boasts guest appearances from former Killswitch Engage singer Howard Jones on The Signal Fire and Testament frontman Chuck Billy on The Crownless King. Head below to view the artwork, tracklist, and emotional lead single, Unleashed, a track that sets the tone of the album with a nightmarish opening scream from vocalist Jesse Leach. Discussing the song, he said:

"Unleashed is about inner passion and rage coming up to the surface. We all have that wild within that often stays dormant until a tragic event triggers and awakens it. This song is about that awakening within. I feel we were able to capture something raw and intense on this song and I’m stoked for everyone to hear it! The new album 'Atonement' is a reflection of perseverance and passion through the trials and suffering of our existence."

1. Unleashed
2. The Signal Fire
3. Us Against the World
4. The Crownless King
5. I Am Broken Too
