About one month after the shocking newsfeed on Killswitch Engage's Facebook profile, describing that Howard Jones had to quit the band due to personal reasons, we can surely assume that KSE's search for a new vocalist has been completed.
Jesse Leach, forming member of the band, has been picked after revealing several rumors about reuniting with his former band.
That shows the band's homepage.
The band is currently producing new material and preparing for a European tour in early summer 2012.
In a recent interview with Australia's Loud magazine, Leach was asked if he has been approached to rejoin Killswitch Engage following the recent exit of his replacement, Howard Jones. "I'm not going to comment," he responded. "Everyone wants to know I'd rather those guys go through what they've got to go through and whenever they make that decision They're good friends of mine, so I'm respecting their space at the moment. It's more fun, more mystery, too; you don't have to know everything. These days everybody is on Facebook and tweeting everything that happens. What's happened to the mystery of music and not knowing everything?"
He added, "My viewpoint is to respectfully step back from the situation and support them. Whatever decision they make will be the right one for them and I look forward to what it is."
Leach spent most of the past year touring with Times Of Grace, his collaborative project with Killswitch Engage members Adam Dutkiewicz (guitar) and Joel Stroeltzel (guitar). That band's debut album, "Hymn Of A Broken Man", came out in January 2011 via Roadrunner Records.
