‘Killswitch Engage’s’ ‘Jesse Leach’ Tour Diary


Killswitch Engage front man Jesse Leach is currently writing a tour diary for Alternative Press as the band celebrate the 10 year anniversary of their Roadrunner debut ‘Alive Or Just Breathing.’ Here is a very interesting snippet from Jesse‘s blog…

Having a second chance to be in this band is surreal at times. I would have never thought this would happen, but it all came full circle. We just finished a record I feel is my best work yet, and everyone in the band is excited for it. I’m looking forward to a few more weeks of these shows.”

Killswitch Engage are currently mixing their new album with veteran British producer Andy Sneap [Megadeth, Testament, Exodus, Accept, Arch Enemy, Nevermore]to mix their new album for an early 2013 release via Roadrunner Records. The recording sessions for the CD were overseen by Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz, an acclaimed producer in his own right who has previously worked with All That Remains, The Devil Wears Prada and As I Lay Dying, among others.

Killswitch Engage‘s forthcoming album will mark the return of the band’s original vocalist, Jesse Leach, who rejoined the group earlier this year following the departure of Howard Jones after nine years and three successful albums. Read more here.
