Metal “supergroup” KILLER BE KILLED will release their second album, “Reluctant Hero”, on November 20 via Nuclear Blast. The third single from the LP, “Inner Calm From Outer Storms”, can be heard just below this article.
The band, which is comprised of Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, ex-SEPULTURA), Troy Sanders (MASTODON) Greg Puciato (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), and drummer Ben Koller (CONVERGE, ALL PIGS MUST DIE, MUTOID MAN), previously released its self-titled debut album in 2014 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
Troy said of the song: “‘Inner Calm From Outer Storms’ is about having the ability to sense a distant or unseen target. It explores a journey of reckless abandon where the destination may, or may not, actually exist.”
Puciato agreed, saying the lyrics reference “the idea of being open to the freedom of having chaos be a state of existence.”
“Reluctant Hero” track listing:
01. Deconstructing Self-Destruction
02. Dream Gone Bad
