Here’s a video of some of the first new music to come out since vocalist Jesse Leach has re-joined the Massachusetts metal band Killswitch Engage. It’s the band performing the song “No End In Sight” which I’m assuming will be on the album. The video was recorded Friday, July 20 at Ground Zero in Traverse City, Michigan.

When asked about being back and making new music Jesse had the following to say:
“It feels great, man. Surprisngly, [it was] a natural transition. I think the one thing for me was just learning [former Killswitch Engage singer] Howard’s [Jones] material, learning how I was gonna, like, live in the songs and make them my own, and once that happened, it feels natural. It almost feels, in a way, that I hadn’t left, but it is ten years later and we’re all much different people, so it just feels a lot better than it did back then.”
“We’ve got two songs completed for our new record and another 12-13 to go that I’m gonna finish up in the fall. . . Thankfully, [they didn't have any vocals done with Howard before I rejoined the group] — it was just music; it had no lyrics, no vocals — Howard hadn’t attempted to do anything, so it was a nice, clean slate. [The stuff sounds] fresh, fast, heavy… I couldn’t be more stoked to sing on the record. As a matter of fact, once I signed up to do the audition for those guys, they took me back to Adam’s [Dutkiewicz, guitar] house and we listened to the record and that totally sold me. When I heard the record, I was like, ‘I’ve gotta sing on this.”
