Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage) Shares New The Way Back Within Track “Serene Sevens”

Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach has shared a new track, titled “Serene Sevens,” from his ambient project The Way Back Within. You can purchase the track on Bandcamp and find a video for it below. Leach commented:

“New ambient track. This is my interpretation of how walks in nature make me feel. During this past year (and for most of my life) nature is my solace and my reset. Living in the Catskills has been an absolute blessing for my mental health. I hope you enjoy my little creation (clocking in at 4:44 intentionally). This track and all of my ambient music is created specifically for soothing the anxious mind and creating a refuge for breath and clarity. All music and visuals captured by yours truly and inspired by nature…”

Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage) Teams Up With Matt Stocks For New Podcast “Stoke The Fire”

Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage) has teamed up with DJ/presenter Matt Stocks (“Life In The Stocks”) for a new podcast called “Stoke The Fire.” Starting March 2, the show will air every Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT via gasdigitalnetwork.com. It will also be released on further podcast platforms every Sunday starting March 6.

Here’s a description of the podcast [via Blabbermouth]:

“The new show features self-reflective, in-depth discussions and interviews with a wide-range of positive and creative forces in the fields of art, music, photography, hospitality, food, sports, mental health and well-being. Their goal is lofty but simple: to recreate the atmosphere of Joe Strummer’s world-famous campfire sessions at Glastonbury festival — in virtual form.”

“Throughout the show, [Stocks and Leach] share deeply personal stories, interview an assorted array of extraordinary people, and host round-the-campfire discussions with their listeners. Hopefully, they’ll also inspire and unite a few people in the process. Eventually, they aim to turn “Stoke The Fire” into a TV travel show — in addition to the podcast — where they can have ever-expanding conversations with artists and creatives all over the world, in real life, around a real campfire. Until that time, they’re here to keep the fires stoked in the world of podcasting.”

Stocks also commented:

“Someone once described Jesse to me as the Bob Marley of heavy metal, and they couldn’t have been more on the money. Metal isn’t necessarily a genre known for having a lot of soul, but Jesse is ALL heart and soul. He’s obviously celebrated for his work as vocalist in KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, but Jesse is so much more than just a great frontman: he’s one of the most deep, philosophical people that I know. I really can’t wait to see where this podcast takes us, and I’m sure the topics of conversation will be both enlightening and inspiring.”

Leach added:

“Launching this podcast with Matt is really exciting for me. It opens up so many possibilities to interact with people! It has also given me a sense of purpose during these strange times. I look forward to making it much bigger than just a simple podcast… I can see some important discussions and potentially some life altering moments while we develop this idea. Matt and I have chemistry and we are in sync with how we want to move forward. I feel like this is a really nice natural progression for me not just as an artist but as a human — I have an undying desire to continue to affect positive change in the world. Let the conversations begin…”

Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach Releases New Album From His Ambient Project The Way Back Within

Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach has released a new album of ambient music under the name The Way Back Within. The effort is titled “At First Light, It Begins” and it can be found on Bandcamp.

Leach commented:

“My first Official Ambient album “At First Light, It Begins” is available on band camp now for $3.33 (link in bio above or search “The Way Back Within” on Bandcamp). This album is 42 minutes of deep meditative ambient music and field recordings of nature.

I draw my inspirations from nature and artists that have inspired and helped me along the way with my journey from @brianeno , @theorblive , @steveroachofficial and @chadlawsonpiano . I decided to release this today because my computer crashed last night with all of my new material on it I’ve been working on the past few months.

As well as 3 @dead_trees_official songs…I hope to be able to recover and eventually release that music…however in the meantime I give you 5 songs that brought me real therapy. I created these songs with sounds from various parts of the world. This is music made with the intention of helping to soothe and calm an anxious mind.

I love this kind of music or soundscape as some would call it. I frequently listen to ambient music to help clear my head and relax me. I hope this music helps people to be able to take a break from the chaos of the world and find some balance and peace, even just for a few minutes. Lastly I recommend wearing headphones for an optimum listening experience.

Thank you for your support friends 🙏🏼”

Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage) Shares New The Way Back Within Track “Afterglow”

Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach has shared a new track, titled “Afterglow,” from his ambient project The Way Back Within. The frontman commented:

“New meditative ambient project “The Way Back Within” is on my @bandcamp. High quality download available: thewaybackwithin.bandcamp.com or just simply search the name. The newest track is called “Afterglow”. It was inspired this morning after watching the stunning and film “Samsara.” Its a track I hope soothes, inspires and allows the listener to sit with in a certain feeling. I recorded it in about an hour or so as it was just flowing out of me. Peace friends thanks for listening and remember listen on your headphones for the best experience 🙏🏼 #Ambient #TheWayBackWithIn #MentalHealthMusic #Peace #Hope”

Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach Sharing “Meditative Ambient Music” On Bandcamp

Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach has launched a new Bandcamp page to release “meditative ambient music” under the name The Way Back Within. The first track, “The Path,” is available now.

Leach commented:

“While I have time on my hands and many thoughts. One way I thought I could express some of that was through music. So I started a page on @bandcamp for my meditative ambient music called “The Way Back Within” (Headphones highly recommended for all of this music).

I’ve been creating this type of music for the better part of 2 decades but very rarely share any of it. At the moment there is one track up but I have many more to come. I also need to thank my girl @porphyraphilia for the use of her soothing voice on this track as she gently speaks some words of wisdom and encouragement on the first track called “The Path.” We are what we create with in ourselves after all, so with this I choose to create a healing sound. I’m pleased to share with you this little known side of me.

Remember to breathe deep and face each new day with a calm determination (as hard as that may be in these times.) My hope is this music helps to soothe the anxious soul. Lord knows we all need it now more than ever. Thanks for listening 🙏🏼 #TheWayBackWithIn #Ambient #Music #Chillout #Meditative #Nature #Calm #Peace #BreatheDeep #BeStill”
