The Weapon (Killswitch Engage) Release Debut EP

The Weapon, the new hardcore/punk band featuring Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage), along with guitarist Chris Drapeau, bassist Josh Mihlek, and drummer Andy Mass, have released a new two-song EP via Bandcamp. You can check that out below:

Leach discussed the project with Revolver and had the following say:

“We are not striving for perfection, just feeling. With Killswitch [Engage] and Times [Of Grace,] it’s very polished and precise. It can be tiring and tedious. Don’t get me wrong, I love it and I’m very fortunate to do both of those bands, but to me, The Weapon is for fun and for the love of hardcore!

On top of that, I can go in a little more hard on the lyrics and I don’t have to concern myself with melodies or singing a part near perfect. I am not a fan of unflawed ‘perfect’ sounding vocals — clearly, if you’ve seen me live — so it’s a breath of fresh air to just belt it out and be done. Each song, I did three full takes, picked the best one and slapped backups on them and it was done in 45 minutes tops.”
