Singer Jesse Leach Rejoins Killswitch Engage

Killswitch Engage - Official Site

After much speculation and rumor, Killswitch Engage have re-enlisted their original frontman Jesse Leach as their singer following the recent departure of vocalist Howard Jones. The news was simply broken by a photo of the lineup on the band’s official website.

As previously reported, Jones parted ways with the group at the beginning of the year, citing his battle with type 2 diabetes among the reasons. Almost immediately, there was speculation that Leach may rejoin the group. However, that was tempered when Killswitch Engage announced open auditions for the vacant singer slot.

Now, via the new band photo, Killswitch Engage have made it clear that Leach is back in the fold. Leach was the lead singer for the band’s first two albums — 2000′s self-titled effort and 2002′s ‘Alive or Just Breathing.’ After he left the band in 2002, he was replaced by Jones, who recorded three albums with Killswitch Engage.

Leach will presumably perform with Killswitch Engage for the first time since the reunion when they headline the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival on April 22.
