This is so beyond phat, I can’t even get over it!
So, it seems Killswitch Engage have confirmed that they will replace Howard Jones with their first singer — and better singer. That would be Jesse Leach — who also is a member of The Empire Shall Fall, Times of Grace, and the Gun Shy Assassin editorial team.
The group confirmed the news today in a not so subtle way — posting an image on the band’s site of Killswitch with Jesse. They’re all laughing. This is a good thing.
Seriously, this is maybe the best news ever; at least the best news I’ve reported since I reported on the departure of Howard. I always thought Killswitch was at its best with Jesse and that Howard really brought a weird element to the band’s sound.
I am so pumped. Mostly because it’s Jesse and NOT Tommy Vext. That would’ve been awful.
Who else is?
I can’t wait to hear the new Killswitch record now. This is a great day, people.
And by the way…didn’t we all kind of know this would happen?
Killswitch is back, motherfuckers!
