Lyric video premiere: IKILLYA, ‘Bear Your Name’

Posted by on July 22, 2014


Earlier this year, IKILLYA’s sophomore album, Vae Victis, was released via MRI/Megaforce. It was a nice growth from their debut, and we spoke about it with the band’s frontman Jason Lekberg when the album was released. Now, with the band hitting the road later this week with Battlecross and Crimson Shadows (dates below), we’re proud to bring you the lyric video debut of “Bear Your Name.” Here’s what Lekberg had to say about the song:

This is the most out of the box song on the record. The end descends into a jazzy movement that really allowed the vocals to deliver the lyrics as raw as they feel. Horns have alway been a part of what we do, but this is our most clear foray into brass yet.
