Jesse Leach planning on playing shows with hardcore band The Weapon

Posted by on January 24, 2020

Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage will be playing with his hardcore band, The Weapon around NYC later this year. The band consists of Chris Drapeau, bassist Josh Mihlek and drummer Andy Mass. Leach commented on the show and talked about an upcoming record.

Some seriously great people right here @theweaponnyc and killer musicians on top of it! We had a lot of fun making a punk rock record. I am very pleased and stoked on it! It’s fast, angry, raw, passionate and full of protest hymns. I did the majority of the vocals in 3 straight takes very little fixes, so it’s imperfect and raw like a deep cut with gasoline poured over it.
In truth It’s the record I’ve wanted to make for many many years but couldn’t find the right people, the proper motivation and the right timing to actually do it. Well it’s now done and we jammed on it along side a few classic punk rock covers tonight. We hope to be playing some shows around the NYC area this year in between @killswitchengage tours and the chaos of all of our lives! Thank you @the_josh @christopherdrapeau and @darkcitystudios for your friendship, music, patience, great conversations and for being rad humans. It’s liberating to be able to speak (well hell and scream actually) much more deeply on my view of this sick and twisted world of corruption and greed. These are our rebel anthems and we will use them to raise awareness as well as raise funds to support various organizations we believe in! Don’t just yell about it BE about it! Smash the system by bettering it through daily actions and choices. Every seemingly small action causes a reaction of the likes of which we can not predict. .
Every explosion starts with a spark…… .
