Basically, Killswitch Engage are American Metalcore legends… The band from Massachusetts formed in 1999 after the disbanding of Overcast and Aftershock. Drawing inspiration from 80’s hardcore and associated with the British Post-Hardcore movement (see Hundred Reasons, Biffy Clyro, Million Dead, Reuben and Hell Is For Heroes) they released their debut album, ‘Zero for Conduct’ in 2001. For their sixth studio album, ‘Disarm and Descent‘, Killswitch Engage reunited with original singer Jesse Leach, whose vocals and lyrics on 2002′s landmark Alive or Just Breathing are fan-favorite qualities and part of what helped put them on the map as one of the most important bands of the modern metal revival.
Call it coming full circle, returning to their roots or coming home again. Whatever the case and no matter what you choose to label it, Leach’s return to the fold is welcomed and anticipated by all involved, from the band members themselves to the fans. Leach is a fitting piece of the Killswitch Engage puzzle. Killswitch Engage enjoyed a decade of success with Leach’s replacement Howard Jones, who has moved on amicably.
“This change is very exciting,” the band said upon announcing Leach’s triumphant return. “We know you’re going to love it. This is truly a new era in Killswitch Engage history and it is ready to shred your face off. So, please help us in welcoming Jesse back into the family; he is a rare and great talent.”
