Jesse Leach on Rejoining Killswitch Engage, Playing Their First Reunion Gig + More

Jesse Leach
Liz Ramanand, Loudwire

During our coverage of the 2012 New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, we had the opportunity to speak with the man of the hour, Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage, only moments before his first performance since reuniting with the band earlier this year.

The buzz resonating throughout the Palladium was certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, as we reported in our in-depth coverage of the festival’s third day. With a cup of 12-year-old scotch to help him prepare, Leach spoke with us about his reaction to the news that former Killswitch vocalist Howard Jones had left the band, his audition for the vacant spot, his pre-show mindset and much more.

Please enjoy our exclusive video interview with Jesse Leach on the eve of his first mind-blowing performance with the reunited Killswitch Engage:
