Killswitch Engage Frontman Tapped For Bad Brains Tribute

This will be rad

I am super psyched for Jesse Leach right now.

The Killswitch Engage frontman was personally invited — and accepted an offer — to join a live Bad Brains tribute planned for Election Night (November 6) at the Bowery Electric.

“Rock For Light,” a benefit show for Amnesty International, will also boast Bad Brains’ own H.R., John Joseph of the Cro-Mags, Vernon Reid of Living Colour, and Jesse Malin from D-Generation.

Commented Leach: “This is happening and I was asked to SING!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO Sooooo amped to share the stage with some of my favorite musicians ever! Represent!”

I want to go, but I will have to work that night. Bummer.

Get tickets here.
