Leach was lead singer of the self-titled Killswitch Engage debut from 2000. He left the band in 2002.

He reconciled with the band at the Roadrunner 25th Anniversary concert and performed with his replacement Howard Jones.

Earlier this week, Killswitch Engage posted a photo on their website with Leach hinting that he was back with the band.

“This change is very exciting,” the band says in a statement. “We know you’re going to love it. This is truly a new era in KsE history and it is ready to shred your face off. So, please help us in welcoming Jesse back into the KsE family; he is a rare and great talent, a fact that older KsE fans have known for years. Here is to a killer new record and a bright future. The five of us cannot wait to write this record and play shows together and bring that feeling to our fans. It’s been far too long.”

Leach said, “I look forward to writing the new record, since the demos sound absolutely amazing, as well as breathing new life and getting comfortable with the soulful songs Howard has written. It is a new chapter of my life filled with new and exciting challenges. I will give all that I can to honor the position I have been given and take nothing for granted. I will sing every note with all of my soul. I am very blessed and very thankful to be back in the KSE family! All things happen in their due time and now is the time for this reunion and new direction.”

The band is now working on a follow-up to their last album from 2009.
