Supergroup Killer Be Killed Announce New Album, Reluctant Hero
Following up their 2014 debut, supergroup Killer Be Killed have announced a brand-new album, Reluctant Hero.
The band – featuring Max Cavalera (Soulfly/ex-Sepultura), Ben Koller (Converge/Mutoid Man), Greg Puciato (ex-The Dillinger Escape Plan/The Black Queen) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon/Gone Is Gone) – will be releasing their new full-length on November 20 via Nuclear Blast.
“After six years, the magic is back!” says Max. “Reluctant Hero, full of riffs and catchy melodies.”
To coincide with the news, the band have unleashed new single – and LP opener – Deconstructing Self-Construction.
“This has been a long time coming. It feels great to be getting this out,” enthuses Greg. “Also can I say that Troy’s verse vocals are fucking insane? What an entrance! Go for a drive and roll the windows down and crank this thing up.”
