Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach says his “voice feels great” following vocal cord surgery

Killswitch Engage's Jesse Leach says his Credit: Travis Shinn Killswitch Engage is back on the road following frontman Jesse Leach's surgery on his vocal cords earlier this year, and the singer has shared a high-spirited update on the current condition of his pipes. "My voice feels great, so I'm in a great state of mind and I'm super excited," Leach says in an interview with Sweden Rock Festival. "I feel I'm singing better than I ever have." In fact, Leach feels that the surgery was actually a "blessing in disguise." "Sitting with a [vocal] teacher, going through rehab and re-learning how to use my voice again, I know how to do it properly," he says. "Finally, after all these years of abuse, I know where the voice is supposed to be placed, and I feel like I'm singing better, I'm screaming better -- and that's affected my mental health [for the better]." Killswitch is currently on tour in Europe. The band is also working on a new album, the follow-up to 2016's Incarnate. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
