Jesse Leach Offers Updates On The Weapon & Times Of Grace

With Killswitch Engage‘s new album “Atonement” set to be released on August 16, Jesse Leach is shifting focus to his other projects. The frontman recently confirmed that he is getting ready to record vocals for new albums from The Weapon and Times Of Grace.

Leach said the following about The Weapon:

“Last show of the @killswitchengage tour tonight then home to knock out an album with these maniacs @theweaponnyc! It’s been a long time coming but our punk rock anarchist hardcore jams will finally get some vocals on them! Great guys and killer players!!! 🏴☠️🏴
#TheWeaponNYC #PunkRock #Hardcore #RebelMusic #AnarcoPunk #PMA #HardcorePride”

He also added the following about Times Of Grace:

“Also on the to do list! Continuing to track vocals for the long anticipated follow up to this emotive beast of an album. @times_of_grace_music has been slowly making progress and will continue to track vocals in hope to finish our album before the end of 2019! Adam is quite anxious to wrap it up and I feel in my soul it must be done soon! It will be quite different than the last album and we are all very excited with the direction it has taken! .
Thank you for your patience it will be worth it! 🙏🏼 #TimesOfGrace”

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.”
