KILL THE LIGHTS UK HEADLINE TOUR KICKS OFF THIS FRIDAY – Frontman James Clark Chats With Rock ‘N’ Load Ahead OF UK Return




Rock ‘N’ Load Caught Up With Frontman James Clark To Chat About The New Album & Returning To The UK

Enjoy Five-headed metal beast KILL THE LIGHTS  latest single, Sleep With The Devil. The final track unveiled before the release of their impressive new album Death Melodies on March 8th, the track eschews their usual face-flaying riffs to showcase soaring vocal harmonies and a more reflective side of the band – and give the moshpit a break!

Singer James Clark says, “‘Sleep With the Devil,’ lyrically, deals with the struggle of addiction and the daily fight to stay sober. Every day you wake up, you are in a constant battle, with the inner voices and demons that tell you that you are not good enough, and you should give up. Simply looking at yourself in the mirror is a reminder of how you’ve let yourself, your family, and friends down. It’s a constant negative cycle that fuels your desire to mask the pain and disappointment by abusing yourself.”

Certain bonds cross all borders and boundaries. KILL THE LIGHTS harbour this kind of connection between them. Even though you’ve got Michael “Moose” Thomas [drums] and Jason “Jay” James [bass] in Bridgend, Wales, and – across the pond in the USA – 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 experienced musicians boast an experienced, stellar 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 further acclaim from the likes of Kerrang! and New Noise, a sense of unwavering unity drives their second full-length offering, Death Melodies.
