Killswitch Engage Welcome Back Original Vocalist Jesse Leach
After weeks of online speculation, it looks like Killswitch Engage has reunited with original vocalist Jesse Leach. Although the band, or their management, have yet to make a formal announcement, today, the American metalcore heroes posted a band photo (see above) featuring the singer, today, Feb. 6, on their official website.
Leach, 33, sang for Killswitch Engage from the band’s 1999 inception, till 2002. The Rhodes Island native recorded the albums ‘Killswitch Engage’ (2000) and ‘Alive or Just Breathing’ (2002) before leaving the group. Since then, Leach has released albums as a member of the bands Seemless and The Empire Shall Fall, and in 2011 he joined Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam D. in the project Times of Grace, releasing ‘The Hymn of a Broken Man’ last year.
Howard Jones, Leach’s replacement in Killswitch Engage, officially parted ways with the metallers on Jan. 4, 2012, after a decade with the band.
