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.

So many years, so much music and much much more to come. We are legit an “odd couple.” On paper our personalities clash, but in life it works, it clicks and it’s genuine. More vocal tracking for KSE in the next three days. We are chipping away at a massive stone. I’m about half way through 21 songs. Then of course figuring out which songs make it to the album. . This photo was from the “Times of Grace” days...and yes at some point there will be a new record for that project as well. One thing at a damn time! #killswitchengage #JesseLeach #AdamD #TimesOfGrace #PuttingInWork #OddCouple #Pals #chaosAndOrder
