Former Killswitch Engage Vocalist Jesse Leach Offers ‘No Comment’ to Possible Reunion
After the official announcement that longtime Killswitch Engage vocalist Howard Jones was leaving the band, talk quickly turned to who is replacement will be. The first name that came to many minds was original Killswitch vocalist Jesse Leach. However, Leach has pleaded the fifth on the rumors and officially gave fans a "no comment" on his personal Facebook page.
Within the original statement explaining Jones' departure, Killswitch Engage were very clear about continuing their saga even without the beloved vocalist. Only two days later after the announcement, former KsE vocalist and current Times of Grace / The Empire Shall Fall vocalist Jesse Leach posted bible verse, 'Ecclesiastes 3.' The King James version states, "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."
Whether intentional or unintentional, the vocalist further added fuel to the fire of his KsE comeback rumors even when he posted, "I go where the spirit leads me," with various fans responding, "To Killswitch?!"
Leach continued to leave the question unanswered until today (Jan. 9) with the post, "Stop trying to read in between the lines of my posts. If I have something to say, I WILL say it. For the moment I have no comments on KSE."
With no announcement of a new singer having been recruited, fans are left to continue their speculation regarding just who will wield the microphone for the popular metalcore act.
