IT’S FOOTAGE OF JESSE LEACH’S FIRST “REUNION” SHOW WITH KILLSWITCH ENGAGE
Jesse Leach made his official live return to Killswitch Engage this past weekend at the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, and I’ve been waiting all week for decent-quality bootleg footage of the show to turn up online. But word is that security was cracking down on audience cams like it was a GN’R show in the 90s, and so until I saw the below on The PRP this morning, nothing seemed that satisfactory to me. But this footage is pretty decent.
Alas, none of it is of Leach performing Howard Jones-era material, which I know a lot of fans — myself are included — are curious about. But it does demonstrate that Leach’s pipes are in great shape, and that band appears to be firing on all cylinders. So, if there was any doubt that getting Leach back was the right decision for the band in light of their split with Jones, this oughta put an end to that.
