Jesse Leach On The New Killswitch Engage Album: “I Feel There Is Something For Everyone On This One”

Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach has excitedly been talking about the band’s upcoming new album.

While we’re still waiting for an actual official announcement from the Killswitch Engage camp regarding the release date of their new album (though they have said it’s due this fall), frontman Jesse Leach has been getting fans very excited for what’s to come.

Having been listening to the follow-up to 2016’s Incarnate “while climbing a mountain” (because what else would you expect from Jesse?!), the vocalist gushed on Instagram that he “wouldn’t change a thing” about it, and that he’s stoked on “the messages, the tones, the track listing order, the artwork, the overall feel of this album”.

Read Jesse’s comments below:

Today I listened to the new album in its entirety while climbing a mountain. Yes it was epic! After all the time, blood, sweat, tears and a damn vocal surgery… I have to say I wouldn’t change a thing. At first I was a bit crestfallen that a few songs I truly loved didn’t make the cut. Now after time has passed (and I’ve not listened to it for a while) I listened with fresh ears today. I gotta say I am quite satisfied! The messages, the tones, the track listing order, the artwork, the overall feel of this album it just feels fresh!

I feel there is something for everyone on this one. It captures the wide range of styles and topics that are part of our history as a band as well as pushing things just a touch. It is a pretty amazing feeling as a very picky and perpetually unsatisfied (and fairly insecure) artist to feel accomplished. Anyway enough out of me for now, more to come in the next month or so! Until then many thanks for all the love and support my friends! Here is to another chapter and another album cycle on the way!”

Sounds awesome.
