KILLER BE KILLED – the supergroup, which is comprised of Max Cavalera (SOULFLY, ex-SEPULTURA), Troy Sanders (MASTODON) Greg Puciato (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN), and drummer Ben Koller (CONVERGE, ALL PIGS MUST DIE, MUTOID MAN) – will release its sophomore album, “Reluctant Hero”, on November 20 via Nuclear Blast. Today the band have debuted a third single from the eagerly-awaited collection: “Inner Calm From Outer Storms”.

Greg Puciato agrees, saying the lyrics reference “the idea of being open to the freedom of having chaos be a state of existence.”
