Killswitch Engage Rejoined By Former Vocalist Jesse Leach
Last week we reported on the on-going Killswitch Engage/Jesse Leach speculation, which all started after it was announced that (now-former) singer Howard Jones was no longer in the band. Immediately whispers began amongst the KSE fanbase that previous vocalist Jesse Leach would rejoin — after all, he and Killswitch guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz did release an album as Times of Grace in 2011.
Despite several misleading comments and admittedly toying with his followers, Jesse Leach appears in front of the band in a new picture where they are all enjoying a good laugh (probably at our expense). The new pic posted to the Killswitch Engage website all but confirms what most have thought to be true from the beginning on the singer-shake up — Jesse Leach has rejoined Killswitch Engage.
Jesse recorded two album with Killswitch Engage, the last of which being 2002’s ‘Alive or Just Breathing’ — which Leach recently called “a career-defining album.” Killswitch Engage were already recording a new album when Jones’ departure was announced, work will presumably continue now that they have welcomed Leach back into the fold.
