Jesse Leach Breaks His Silence About Killswitch Return
Gun Shy Assassin - about 5 years
Killswitch Engage, as it should be So, you may have noticed, but the other day, just before it was revealed that <a class="fplink fp-511119" href="/jesse+leach+1">Jesse Leach</a> was back as Killswitch Engage’s singer, the dude killed his social networking profiles. In fact, he didn’t respond to emails until just this week. I’d share our email, but wouldn’t want to break that trust. Leach did give his first interview the other day, speaking to “Brock And The Fatguy,“ an Anchorage, Alaska-based radio show co-hosted by Brock Lindow of 36 Crazyfists. In the interview, Jesse talks about the new Killswitch, which sounds like it’s going to be fucking sweet. “I have the 14 demos for the new Killswitch record, and let me tell you…I’m glad that they didn’t turn into Times Of Grace, and I’m glad that Killswitch is gonna have the opportunity to write another record with me — or a few more, God willing,” Jesse said. “I can tell you right now from the demos, the people are gonna be really ...

Leach has been posting missives on Facebook that’ve led me to think that he was definitely going to rejoin the band, and others that have made me think “Nope, he’s not.” One comment from Leach made Friday just cited a Bible passage: “Ecclesiastes 3.″ That scripture passages basically says, “There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.” Or, there is a time and place for everything, which made me think “OK -- he’s at least considering it.” But then last night, dude posted “I go where the spirit l ...

When he was not contacting his wife, Leach would sit alone in the tour van for hours after shows and simply wait for the remaining band members to return.

According to Mike D'Antonio in an interview for Killswitch's "(Set This) World Ablaze" DVD, "It seemed like there was always this dark cloud over Jesse's head."

Quoting Leach from his interview in the DVD, "I didn't have the mental energy to face them, or even call them on the phone rather. I was at a point in my life where I just didn't want to face any of them so I wrote them a long email explaining, like, I'm just done. Explaining what every song meant to me, explaining what the whole experience was to me, and I said 'Bye. Ya know? You're not going to be able to find me, I'm going on my honeymoon finally.
