KILLSWITCH ENGAGE Singer Is 'About Halfway Through' Recording Vocals For New Album

Jesse Leach has revealed that he is "about halfway through" laying down vocals on 21 new KILLSWITCH ENGAGE songs. The band will then "figure out" which tracks to include on its upcoming album, which is expected to arrive in early 2019.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's new disc will feature a guest appearance on one song by the band's former lead singer Howard Jones.

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

Leach appeared on KILLSWITCH's self-titled debut and sophomore album, "Alive Or Just Breathing", before exiting the band. Jones took over on vocals for "The End of Heartache", "As Daylight Dies" and the 2009 self-titled set before being dismissed from the group six years ago.

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's next disc will be released through Metal Blade Records in the U.S. and Sony Music Entertainment outside of North America.
