It’s been one hell of a year for Jesse Leach, who reunited with Killswitch Engage at the beginning of 2012. The band's first performance back together occurred at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival, and they were also part of this year’s Trespass America Festival over the summer with Five Finger Death Punch, Trivium and more.
Only six months after the live return of vocalist Jesse Leach to Killswitch Engage, the band has announced that they will embark on a 2012 tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their landmark album 'Alive or Just Breathing.' During the monthlong North American tour, Killswitch will be playing the album in its entirety. Shadows Fall and Acaro will support the trek.
The lineup of the sixth annual California Metalfest has officially been announced. The Nov. 24 festival in San Bernardino, Calif., showcases some of today's biggest names in metal, including As I Lay Dying, Suicide Silence, Asking Alexandria, Black Veil Brides and the Dillinger Escape Plan. Headlining the even will be Killswitch Engage, who will be giving fans an epic performance of their breakthrough album 'Alive or Just Breathing' in its entirety for the first time ever.
‘The End of Heartache’ from Killswitch Engage’s third studio album of the same name, dropped in 2004 and remains a fan favorite with its soulful melodies, rattling riffs and memorable lyrics. From the moment Howard Jones sings 'Seek me / Call me / I’ll be waiting' the track’s infectious vibe begins to take hold.
Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend.
