Killswitch Engage is known for its heavy, aggressive metal-core, but the guys can also take a step back and rock it unplugged. In that spirit, the band has shared an acoustic version of “We Carry On,” a song off the band’s 2016 album, “Incarnate.”

The guys recorded the stripped-down version of the song remotely while on self-quarantine in their respective homes. View the gull performance below via YouTube.

“This song is a deep one for me,” frontman Jesse Leach said in a statement. “When I wrote the lyrics, it was originally based off of struggles in a tumultuous, abusive relationship. Little did I know how significant it would eventually be as it has relevance during this strange time of quarantine and uncertainty. For me, it has turned into an anthem, of sorts, about perseverance. While working on this version, it really struck me how much I felt the lyrics in a different light.”

He continued, “As dark and difficult as things can get, we all have this inner power to persevere and pull through. I feel that the desperation and the melancholy of this song are balanced by a ray of hope that runs through it all.”

Like most bands, Killswitch Engaged was forced to postpone the band’s spring tour due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. New tour

Killswitch Engage’s latest album is 2019’s “Atonement.”
