Pro-Shot Footage of Killswitch Engage Performing With Jesse Leach Surfaces
Vocalist Jesse Leach officially reunited with Killswitch Engage after a ten year absence in February. While we still have to wait on new material from the band, we can check out this video from their recent performance at the Rock Am Festival in Germany.
Leach sounds better than ever on tracks from both his time with the band and after in this pro-shot footage of their June 1st gig in Nürburgring, Germany. The show marked their third performance since reuniting with their former singer, the first being their set at the April 22nd New England Metal & Hardcore Festival. The band is currently touring overseas, which will serve as a warm-up for their upcoming trek across the U.S. with Five Finger Death Punch, Trivium and Pop Evil for the Trespass America tour.
Leach rejoined Killswitch as vocalist when Howard Jones -- the band's vocalist for the ten year stint after Leach's departure -- parted ways with the band due to a combination of health issues and a lack of drive to continue in the business. The band currently has a new album in the works that is expected to be released at some point in 2012.
