KILL THE LIGHTS reveal new song, new bassist, plus UK tour next week inc first ever headline show

19th November 2021 0 By Jon Deaux
KILL THE LIGHTS, which features former members of Bullet For My Valentine and Throw The Fight, released their debut album The Sinner last year on Fearless Records and more recently shared blistering lockdown covers of classic tracks from Metallica (‘Battery‘) and Testament (‘Into The Pit‘).
Today, KILL THE LIGHTS return to share their crushing new song ‘Chasing Shadows‘. Listen here
The band have been teasing fans on social media with the identity of the group’s new bassist in recent days, who was revealed last night to be none other than drummer Moose’s former bandmate in Bullet For My Valentine, Jay James. The new song therefore also marks Jay’s debut with KILL THE LIGHTS.
“Chasing Shadows’ is the perfect song, lyrically, to re-introduce Jay and his talents to the world,” the band shares. “The lyrics discuss the mental struggle of living with past decisions and failures, and the effort it takes to get back to the top. ‘Chasing Shadows’ is about proving the doubters wrong and showing the world through sweat, blood, and tears that you are and always were good enough!”
The song’s metallic intensity will chip the paint off the walls, as the galloping riffs and melodies have you throwing the horns while hunting out a denim jacket and bullet belt. Stick around for the absolutely ferocious breakdown that closes out the track.
Catch the band on tour in the UK from next week with BLEED FROM WITHIN at the following dates:
Wed 24th Nov – BIRMINGHAM Mama Roux’s SOLD OUT
