Recently reunited, Jesse Leach and company are looking like they will mark early 2016 as the release time for their next studio album. This will be the bands 2nd release since the return of former singer, Jesse Leach. In an Instagram post, Leach said:
“Well, it looks like after this tour I’ll be spending 12 days alone in the Uk and Europe in December doing a press tour for the new Killswitch Engage album! I am stoked for obvious reasons and then honestly overwhelmed. Doing a press tour can be pretty intense (and I’ve never done one on my own as Adam D. will be busy mixing our record). I will be doing full days of non-stop interviews and flying almost daily which can be exhausting, but getting a chance to see some of the world’s most beautiful cities is pretty amazing (even if it’s only brief glimpses). It is slowly starting to hit me that the record of my entire career is finished and soon to be revealed to the world (it’s looking like a March release)!
“What a beautiful mix of anticipation, gratitude, vulnerability, joy and catharsis. I seriously cherish these days living inside a childhood dream and watching it become my reality daily. I have to remind myself that despite my struggles and trials my determination and circumstance have brought me to a place that far surpasses my hopes and desires. Counting my blessings and preparing for the journey ahead! So thankful and overwhelmed at the moment. You never know what possibilities await you as you rise to greet another day. Thankful, humbled and excited as the time approaches yet again for the unleashing of a collaborative effort of passion and expression. I hope and pray my words are received and resonate with those who hear them. I seek guidance and strength for the days ahead.”
I’ve been a fan of KsE since their first album, and through the eras of Leach, Jones, and now Leach again, every album has had some killer tunes. They are one of those bands that are lucky and after losing such a crucial singer, find a replacement that makes them just as powerful – mind you, it happened twice! Whatever comes out of the hands of Adam D. and the throat of Leach is sure to make for some good sounds!
