KILLSWITCH ENGAGE singer Jesse Leach has finished laying down vocals for the band’s seventh studio album, tentatively due in early 2016 via Roadrunner Records.
Leach recently said that writing the material for KILLSWITCH ENGAGE’s next CD was “one of the most challenging projects” in his career.
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE’s follow-up to 2013’s “Disarm The Descent” album was recorded with guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz once again handling production duties.The CD will mark the group’s second release since Leach rejoined KILLSWITCH in 2012 following a split with the band’s previous frontman, Howard Jones.
“Disarm The Descent” sold around 48,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 7 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on April 2, 2013 via Roadrunner Records.
“Disarm The Descent” was KILLSWITCH ENGAGE’s first album with Leach at the vocal helm since 2002’s now-classic, genre-defining “Alive or Just Breathing”.
KILLSWITCH ENGAGE has contributed a new song, “Loyalty”, to the mixtape for HBO’s hit fantasy series “Game Of Thrones”.
