Killswitch Engage rejoined by Jesse Leach

Monday, February 6, 2012 2:50 PM PT


In a development that probably won't shock many people, singer Jesse Leach has rejoined Killswitch Engage, a band he fronted until quitting in 2002 (check our original news posting). Leach of course replaces Howard Jones, who parted ways with the group late last year.


UPDATE: The official announcement can be found here.

this is pretty cool. most Killswitch fans weren't even born then.

2/6/2012 2:57:46 PM
it's about time.....howard was good but this was one configuration i always wanted to hear again. this is the happiest lambgoat has EVER made me

thanks

2/6/2012 2:58:45 PM
As expected... still wish Howard would have just stuck it out though.

2/6/2012 3:03:57 PM
Everyone knew this was coming. The fck...the whole "auditions" this was probly just to film a reality show.

Anyways...leeched on stoke.

2/6/2012 3:10:29 PM
Not surprising at all. Never was a fan of the material they wrote with HoJo, so I'm interested to hear what they will come up with

howard was good, but jesse definitely wrote way more badass lyrics so this is pretty awesome

Finally people will stop with the "GET JESSE BACK" comments. Cue the "GET HOWARD BACK" comments.

2/6/2012 3:52:58 PM

Howard is now doing guy on guy porn w Evan from biohazard. Evan swallowing howard is the dvd c-mming out next month.

2/6/2012 4:55:54 PM
Great news though I still would've been happier with Myke Terry formerly of BYD.

Was expecting more people to be shitting on this.
Cool to see other people happy with this.

fcking stoked.
Never got to see them with Jesse singing.

anonymous
2/6/2012 5:18:16 PM
well, thats the high point of my day

2/6/2012 5:19:52 PM
Howard is and always be a brother to me. It would be amazing if BHBS was part of his future. hope all works out well in any case.

Jesse is great and it will awesome seeing him step up again.

fck this. You gays jerking it to Jesse Leech, come on really? The guy had nothing unique. I'm not wishing for my childhood dreams back just because I had them, let go of yours! Howard Jones actually brought something to the table, his voice. His lyrics may have been cliche but he made those songs come alive with that voice.

anonymous
2/6/2012 10:02:12 PM
fck. YES

anonymous
2/6/2012 10:23:15 PM
The bigger question looming here is if the publicized reason for Jessie leaving the band has been rectified during his sizable absence...his throat issues on a touring schedule.

Sure he`s been in bands post-KSE ousting, but none with a heavy tour rotation. Shall wait and see.

anonymous

anonymous
2/6/2012 11:03:56 PM
THEY STILL SUCK.

2/6/2012 11:36:21 PM
i mean it's cool but isn't this seven years too late?

Tour will equal 2 albums of shitty Howard KSE material for Jesse to perform, one good album of Howard material, and the amazing original album heard as it should be heard.

So much love spurts out of lambgoat for this reunion.... this must be 2012 and the world is truly ending.

2/7/2012 2:20:30 AM
I'm disappointed in all of you.

This band has sucked shit since it's inception. The vocalist never mattered. You are all retarded c-ck puppets.
