Killswitch Engage Go Behind The Scenes Of 'Cut Me Loose' Video

Killswitch Engage

(Metal Hammer) Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach has revealed behind-the-scenes clips from the shooting of a new video for "Cut Me Loose." The band travelled to Boneville Salt Flats in Utah last week to film for the track from latest album Incarnate, which was released in March.

They launched a Cut Me Loose video in February - but Leach has explained it "was meant as a 'visual aid' and not the official video, apparently."

He recently told Metal Hammer: "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."

He added: "My vocal work on this album is the best I've ever done. I got my voice in shape from touring and sort of hit my stride, and instead of resting on my laurels, I wanted to take it up a notch.

"I got comfortable with the higher register of my voice and decided to play with it a little bit. Knowing your voice and your instrument is important, and I wrote this song very specifically for the top of my range." Watch the video here.
