Killswitch Engage frontman forms hardcore punk band

Friday, March 17, 2017 10:37 AM PT


Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach has revealed that he's started a new "punk hardcore" band. Leach had the following to say via Instagram:

"It's been a long time coming, man! Woke up with a fire in my heart! These four albums [Minor Threat 'Minor Threat', 7 Seconds 'Walk Together, Rock Together', Black Flag 'Damaged', and Discharge 'Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing'] serve as inspiration for a jam session today with three killer humans! Don't tell anyone, but I've put together a punk hardcore band/project for fun and today is our first jam session here in New York! To say I'm excited is a vast understatement! This is a side project and it is being done for the pure enjoyment of playing. It is also a necessary outlet for a singing/yelling style and lyrics I can't fit into any other band or project I've ever done. My 15-year-old self is quite proud of me! GO!!"

There's a lot of "what the fck?" going on here. This dude jammed with some guys once and made a post about it. That's some shit I did when I was 13.

That's unfortunate. Hardcore Punk is terrible boring shit.
