Killswitch to start demo work

Killswitch Engage are gearing up to record demos for their seventh album, with a view to having material ready by the end of the year, says frontman Jesse Leach.

The completed project will follow last year’s Disarm The Descent, his first record with the band in a decade.

Leach tells Wikimetal: “We’re going to take some time off, start demoing and start writing. We’re really looking forward to getting some new material out. Hopefully by the end of this year we’ll have material ready to go. We’ll see what happens – but we’re definitely stoked on it.”
