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