Watch a mini-documentary about the making of the new Killswitch Engage album

Massachusetts-based metal act Killswitch Engage has a new record on the horizon—Disarm The Descent, out April 2—and is offering fans an evil little glimpse at life inside the recording studio. Shot by directors McFarland And Pecci, New Awakening is a five-part, 30-minute documentary chronicling the making of the record. Featuring interviews, rehearsal and studio footage, and the return of original singer Jesse Leach, New Awakening aims to show fans what life in the studio is like, which is to say both musically enthralling and mentally exhausting.

Disarm The Descent is available to pre-order now on the band’s site, and the first installment of New Awakening is below, along with the video for the record’s first single, “In Due Time.”
