Release Date: March 8, 2024 Genre: Metalcore, Groove Metal Label: Fearless Records Over the last several years since the band's conception in 2017, the metal supergroup Kill The Lights has pushed past labels and expectations, and now with their sophomore album, Death Melodies, out March 8, 2024, via Fearless Records, the band wants to continue to push themselves in creating what they want to sound like and strive to be. Kill The Lights' sophomore album, Death Melodies is a powerful testament to the band's unyielding unity and formidable musical talent. Kill The Lights is a stacked powerhouse made up of ex-Throw The Fight vocalist James Clark, Threat Signal guitarist Travis Montgomery, Still Remains guitarist Jordan Whelan, ex-Bullet For My Valentine drummer Michael "Moose" Thomas and the newest member to join the fold is ex-Bullet For My Valentine bassist and vocalist Jason "Jay" James.

From the opening track, "Hear You Scream," to the haunting closer, "Drowning," each song on Death Melodies is a showcase of the band's impressive musicianship and unrelenting energy.

The album's standout moments include "Bleeding," a blistering track that showcases the band's knack for crafting infectious hooks, and "Man Without A Face," which features a driving rhythm section that will have listeners headbanging along in no time. "Sleep With The Devil" is yet another standout with the band bringing things about for a heartwrenching acoustic ballad that features a massive vocal choir and impressive harmonies between the members of Kill The Lights.

Overall, Death Melodies is a triumph for Kill The Lights, showcasing their growth as artists and ability to push modern metal's boundaries. With this album, Kill The Lights have without a doubt solidified their place as one of the most exciting bands in the genre today.
