KILLSWITCH ENGAGE Is 'Cranking Out' Demos For Next Album

Massachusetts metallers KILLSWITCH ENGAGE are writing material for their new album for a 2018 release.

The follow-up to 2016's "Incarnate" will mark the band's third full-length effort since the return of vocalist Jesse Leach, who rejoined the group in 2012.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE offered an update on its current activities in an Instagram post. "Jam sessions starting up in October, demos are getting cranked out!" the band wrote. "2018 we will be dropping some music and getting back on the road once again! Who's ready for this?!!!"

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE bassist Mike D'Antonio told the "Mike James Rock Show" in a 2016 interview that "doing less touring and more albums might be the way to go for us."

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's last release was the "Beyond The Flames: Home Video Part II" two-disc, Blu-ray and CD package. At the heart of this release was a seventy-five-minute documentary that chronicles the return of Leach, after nearly a decade of being apart, to the band he helped form back in 1999. The piece also takes a close look at the KILLSWITCH ENGAGE early years that eventually led to Leach's initial departure.

"Incarnate" debuted at No. 6 on The Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 35,000 equivalent album units. In terms of pure album sales, it opened with 33,000 copies.
