Band haven’t released statement – instead they’ve confirmed fan suspicions by posting photo of former singer Jesse in band lineup

Killswitch Engage with Jesse Leach

Comeback: Leach, centre, with KSE

Killswitch Engage last night confirmed Jesse Leach had returned by filling the front page of their website with a photo of the singer surrounded by his bandmates.

The move confirmed what fans had suspected since Leach’s replacement, Howard Jones, left the band in January, citing health issues and a lack of commitment.

No official comment has been made, but KSE have confirmed a reunion show on April 22 in Worcester, Massachusetts, followed by a European festival tour starting on June 6.

Leach recently refused to comment on whether he was returning to the band he’d left ten years ago, saying: “You don’t have to know everything. These days everybody is on Facebook and tweeting everything that happens. What happened to the mystery of music and not knowing everything?”
