Killer Be Killed release “Dream Gone Bad” video

Killer Be Killed, Max Cavalera (Soulfly/ex-Sepultura), Ben Koller (Converge/Mutoid Man), Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan/The Black Queen) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon/Gone Is Gone), debut a second single from the band’s forthcoming album, “Reluctant Hero” (November 20th, Nuclear Blast Records), unveiling a fiery live performance video for “Dream Gone Bad”

Troy said of the song:

“Dissecting the idea of uncertainty and how you pull from that to find your way. ‘Dream Gone Bad’ was initially spearheaded by Max and I, and as I listen back, through the collaborative process this creation’s final form has now become a dream-come-true.”

The track debuted yesterday via Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal hosted by Jose Mangin. The video, which was shot in Arizona last month, was directed by Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera.

News of a second Killer Be Killed album surprised and delighted fans, with the unexpected announcement paired with the band’s first new song in over six years: “Deconstructing Self-Destruction”. Metal Injection said the track will “rip your damn head off,” Revolver dubbed it “dynamic,” Brooklyn Vegan proclaimed it “anthemic” and Consequence of Sound noted that the band is “hitting on all cylinders.” Both “Dream Gone Bad” and “Deconstructing Self-Destruction” highlight the unique composition of the four-piece with Cavalera, Puciato and Sanders each lending their vocals throughout “Reluctant Hero”. The 11-song album was produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God/Gojira).
