Killer Be Killed Releasing Self-Titled Debut Album May 13

'Killer Be Killed'
Nuclear Blast

Killer Be Killed, a group consisting of Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato, Sepultura / Soulfly legend Max Cavalera, Mastodon frontman Troy Sanders and former Mars Volta drummer David Elitch, has revealed the cover art and release date of the band’s debut album.

The self-titled disc is scheduled to hit shelves on May 13 via Nuclear Blast Records.

It’s difficult not to throw around the term “supergroup” considering the accomplishments and brilliant bodies of work compiled by the four musicians now known as Killer Be Killed, but the expectations for Killer Be Killed’s first offering are massive. Puciato (vocals / guitar), Cavalera (vocals / guitar), Sanders (vocals / bass) and Elitch (drums) continue to release quality material to this day, so the melding of these talents to form one entity is truly fascinating.

“There would be no point in doing this if it sounded the same as our other bands,” says Puciato. “Of any of our bands, it sounds the furthest away from mine, mainly because Dillinger is [guitarist/founder] Ben [Weinman]’s expression, musically.”

“This is a very special project,” Cavalera adds. ”It’s a one of a kind thing, with a lot of potential. The album is a mix of heavy, fast and melodic songs. I love the idea of Greg, Troy and I singing together, with David Elitch’s amazing drumming. Being a part of this is something quite different for me.”

“Having met, created and recorded an album together, this experience has easily exceeded my initial expectations,” raves Sanders. “The collective energy and mutual respect for one another eased the entire process and has been very therapeutic for me.”
