Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach seems to have a lot of time on his hands or a burst of creative energy, or both. It wasn’t too long ago when he decided to take time off from social media (which lasted maybe a few days), and a month ago he assured us that a second Times of Grace album was on its way. Leach’s latest project involves him waking up with a fire in his heart for iconic punk rock and hardcore albums.

According to his Instagram, Leach kicked off a band with 3 killer humans, jamming out to songs from Minor Threat, Black Flag, 7 Seconds, and Discharge. However, he also assured that we’ll hear tunes some time after he digs his car out of the NY wintry ice.

Check out his statement on his just for fun side project below:

“It’s been a long time coming man! Woke up with a fire in my heart! These 4 albums serve as inspiration for a jam session today with 3 killer humans! Don’t tell anyone 😜but I’ve put together a punk hardcore band/project for fun and today is our first jam session here in NY! To say I’m excited is a vast understatement! Now I just need to hack my car out of a couple of feet of ice! Stay tuned, you know I gotta big mouth on here and I’ll drop details or a sample track as soon as I have them. This is a side project and it is being done for the pure enjoyment of playing. It is also a necessary outlet for a singing/yelling style and lyrics I can’t fit into any other band or project I’ve ever done. My 15 year old self is quite proud of me! GO!!!!!!!”
