Killswitch Engage were put on hold this year while guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz reunited with the band’s former vocalist, Jessie Leach, to pursue the side project Times of Grace. It looks like Killswitch now has the ball rolling on the follow-up to their 2009 self-titled outing.

The news of a new record comes was announced a few days ago by Adam D. via the band’s Facebook page:

“YO! Its Adam D! We’re about to begin writing our new record. Thanks to all of our fans for waiting so friggin’ patiently … now let’s turn on the “riff faucet” and RAGE.”

Killswitch Engage bassist Mike D’Antonio had previously spoken with Where It Ends about the progress of the new material being worked on in late June of this year:

“Currently, everyone is individually writing demos for the next Killswitch Engage record. There is no release date yet, but I would assume it will be out early 2012.”

Killswitch Engage’s last album was their self-titled 2009 effort with vocalist Howard Jones — who did not perform with the band during their winter tour in 2010.  While former singer Jessie Leach and All That Remains vocalist Phil LaBonte took turns filling in on the tour, there is no confirmation as to who will be laying down vocals this time around — but the Facebook page does still list Jones as the singer.
