Killswitch Engage’s sixth studio album, Disarm The Descent, is slated for release tomorrow, April 2nd, 2013. The album marks the first with returning vocalist Jesse Leach after the departure of Howard Jones, Killswitch’s vocalist of 10 years. In anticipation of the new record, we caught up with Jesse sometime back and talked about his big return, what really happened in those 10 years that he was missing, his process of self-discovery and music for him as an individual. A pretty in-depth interview, but it’s worth it! Read on.
A lot of people are waiting to hear Disarm The Descent, the new album from metalcore titans Killswitch Engage what with it being the first album since the band reunited with original vocalist Jesse Leach. You see we all knew that once Howard Jones had left the band, it was only a matter of time before Leach came home and, once he had and the subsequent live shows showed how much of a perfect match the two are, recorded material was a high priority.
