Kill The Lights Announce “Death Melodies” & Share “From Ashes” Video

Kill The Lights, which features former members of Bullet for My Valentine, Throw the Fight, Threat Signal, and Still Remains, have announced their sophomore album Death Melodies. It will be released on March 8 via Fearless Records. Pre-order it here

To celebrate the exciting news, the band has also shared the video for “From Ashes.” Watch it here.

 With its classic, ’80s semi-ballad songcraft twinned with modern sounds, “From Ashes” is a new anthem that should accompany any and all rigorous activity. Going to the gym? Then put “From Ashes” at the top of your playlist, as it will get the blood and adrenaline pumping through those veins.

“‘From Ashes’ lyrically discusses having to live with the pain of knowing that you let your loved ones down,” the band offers.

Certain bonds cross any and all borders and boundaries. Kill The Lights harbor this kind of connection between them. Even though you’ve got Michael “Moose” Thomas [drums] and Jason “Jay” James [bass] in Bridgend, Wales, James Clark [vocals] in Minneapolis, MN, Jordan Whelan [guitar] in Grand Rapids, MI, and Travis Montgomery [guitar] in Dallas, TX, the musicians lock into an impenetrable groove that eclipses physical distance. The band is especially adept at fusing classic, galloping guitar riffing with modern metal conventions, like alternately sung and screamed vocals and breakdowns that will incite pits to erupt. 

Of course, the musicians boast an incredible pedigree. Moose co-founded multi-platinum international heavyweights Bullet For My Valentine, while Jay also played in the band. James fronted Throw The Fight, and Jordan and Travis handled guitar duties for Still Remains and Threat Signal, respectively. Upon forming Kill The Lights, they uncovered uncontainable chemistry, releasing their debut LP The Sinner in the midst of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Among many highlights, “The Faceless” posted up 2 million-plus Spotify streams and counting followed by “Through The Night” and “Shed My Skin,” which each crossed the 1 million mark. Metal Hammer rated it 4-out-of-5 stars and proclaimed “Kill The Lights nail the groove and the glory.” After piling up millions of streams and earning acclaim from the likes of KERRANG! and New Noise, a sense of unwavering unity drives their second full-length offering, Death Melodies.
