Costin Chioreanu, who has previously worked on videos for Ghost, Napalm Death and Corrosion of Conformity, created the visually stunning clip.
The musicians have also posted a series of interviews about the album, which can be viewed on the Nuclear Blast

Reluctant Hero has already been met with widespread praise. Revolver and Kerrang! magazines featured the band on recent covers, Loudwire said the music is “crushing,” Metal Injection claimed the songs will “rip your damn head off,” Brooklyn Vegan proclaimed it “anthemic” and Consequence of Sound noted that the band is “hitting on all cylinders.”
KILLER BE KILLED is singer/guitar player Max Cavalera (Soulfly/ex-Sepultura), drummer Ben Koller (Converge/Mutoid Man), singer/guitar player Greg Puciato (The Dillinger Escape Plan/The Black Queen) and singer/bass player Troy Sanders (Mastodon/Gone is Gone). The first whispers of the metal supergroup came in 2011, with the band dubbing themselves KILLER BE KILLED in late 2013 and shortly thereafter announcing the 2014 release of their self-titled debut. They made their live debut the following year as part of Australia’s Soundwave Festival. Metal Injection deemed the album “controlled chaos,” and Loudwire said the band “has its own identity while still sounding enough like Soulfly, The Dillinger Escape Plan and Mastodon to appeal to the fan bases of each of those bands.” In November of 2020, the group released their follow-up album, Reluctant Hero, to much fanfare. Gracing the covers of both Kerrang! and Revolver magazines, critics worldwide praised the 11-song album. Canadian music mag Exclaim said the collection “proves metal can be catchy without being stupid,” U.S.-based Blabbermouth described Reluctant Hero as “impressive… and certainly atypical to what’s popular in heavy music these days,” Australia’s Heavy Magazine summarized their praise for the album with “it’s fu*king amazing” and Metal Hammer declared KBK the “finest supergroup of the past decade.”
