Metal fans across the globe can click here to check out the exclusive worldwide premiere of IKILLYA‘s new video, “Betray Your Creator,” on Youtube today. The live performance video captures the animosity that inspired the song. Describing the emotions involved, IKILLYA frontman Jason Lekberg explains, “Pure rage.
That’s how we feel about cultural justification of rape, and so that’s the only way we could think to visually represent this song. ‘Betray Your Creator’ was an intense song to create and Matt Brewster and Christoph Knie of Engine Room did an excellent job of capturing that intensity in the video for it.” “Betray Your Creator” is taken from IKILLYA‘s forthcoming third album, WAR FOR AN IDEA, due out on June 2nd via Urban Yeti.
WAR FOR AN IDEA is receiving early rave reviews from the press with Decibel giving it 8 out of 10 and declaring “The New York-based thrash/groove metal quartet more than live up to their rep for relentless aggression on WAR FOR AN IDEA, but never at the expense of finesse. IKILLYA approach the weird bits that ultimately make their third album more than a mere collection of killer songs with just as much restraint and consideration…” The band will soon hit the road on a nationwide trek in support of the album. Please see below for tour dates, including the annual charity event in honor of Dimebag Darrell, Ride For Dime, on September 6th at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ.
