Kill The Lights Recruit Ex-Bullet For My Valentine Bassist Jay James, Premiere New Song “Chasing Shadows”

Kill The Lights, the project featuring drummer Michael “Moose” Thomas (ex-Bullet For My Valentine), vocalist James Clark (ex-Throw The Fight), and guitarists Jordan Whelan (Still Remains) and Travis Montgomery (Threat Signal), have officially welcomed Jay James (ex-Bullet For My Valentine) to the band as their new bassist. With this news, the group have also premiered a new song titled “Chasing Shadows.” The band said the following about that:

“‘Chasing Shadows‘ is the perfect song, lyrically, to re-introduce Jay and his talents to the world. The lyrics discuss the mental struggle of living with past decisions and failures, and the effort it takes to get back to the top. ‘Chasing Shadows‘ is about proving the doubters wrong and showing the world through sweat, blood, and tears that you are and always were good enough!”

Bleed From Within Postpone European Leg Of Their Fall Tour With Ingested & Kill The Lights

Bleed From Within have postponed the European leg of their fall tour with Ingested and Kill The Lights. Despite this, the UK dates are still on.

Bleed From Within commented:

“Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we have sadly made the decision to postpone our upcoming European tour dates that were set to take place in November 2021. Varying restrictions across mainland Europe have ultimately put a stop to our touring plans and have left us with no choice. The UK dates will remain unaffected by this and will be going ahead as planned.

The new European dates are still to be confirmed as our schedule for next year continues to fill up, however we are looking at all available options to bring a headline show to you in 2022! Refunds are of course available from your point of purchase should you want one.

Words can not describe how much we want to get back out there and see you all, but for now please take care and look after yourselves. We WILL see you again soon Europe!

Cheers – Ali, Scott, Goonzi, Davie, Steven.’”

Kill The Lights (Ex-Bullet For My Valentine, Etc.) Stream Cover Of Metallica’s “Battery”

Kill The Lights are streaming a cover of Metallica‘s “Battery.“ Drummer Michael “Moose” Thomas (ex-Bullet For My Valentine) told Knotfest.com the following about that:

“We were talking about doing another ‘Quarantine Cover’ after we had so much fun covering ‘Into The Pit‘ by Testament, and it was obvious that we had to try and top that. In my mind, I’ve always wanted to cover anything off the amazingly good ‘Master Of Puppets‘, and it came down to a choice between ‘Disposable Heroes‘ or ‘Battery.’ We chose the latter just because we all agreed that it would be a good challenge to hopefully do justice to. And of course, we’re massive Metallica fans (who isn’t?) and we had a fun time tracking it.”

Kill The Lights Announce Livestream Set

Kill The Lights (ex-Bullet For My Valentine, etc.) will be performing five songs during a special livestream set tomorrow (August 27) at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT. You can watch that on YouTube. This news comes after the band recently released their debut album “The Sinner.”
