Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage, Times Of Grace & The Weapon)

A conversation with Jesse Leach the vocalist of Killswitch Engage, Times Of Grace & The Weapon.

A conversation about how he has been coping with 2020, being Gluten Intolerant, his 1st brews, staying present on stage, his vocal surgery, honoring a band's legacy, where his positivity stems from, Cigar City's KSE Brew, a potential Gluten Free KSE Brew, how he has been filling the void, keeping up his voice, new Times of Grace as well as The Weapon records, a KSE Livestream in 2021 & his hangover cure.

Throughout this interview, Jesse was drinking Ghostfish Brewing Company 's "Grapefruit IPA" which clocked in with a 5.5% ABV & Steadfast Beer Co. 's "Pale Ale" which also clocked in with a 5.5% ABV. Both of these brews were Gluten Free.


Matt enjoyed a very cool homebrew from Stéphane Dèls called "Djinn Genie" the Wit-Style Saison. It was delicious & clocked in with a 4.7% ABV.

This is a Heavy Montreal presents Vox&Hops episode! Heavy Montreal is Montreal's premier metal promoter. They host one of North America's best Metal Festivals & present countless amazing events during the rest of the year. I am truly honored & extremely excited to have them involved in the podcast.

I am very stoked to announce that I have enlisted the help of my friend & ultimate Vox&Hops' Head Jerry Monk to create monthly playlists where he features the most brutal new releases. I have aptly named Jerry the Metal Architect because he consistently sends me albums that he thinks I would enjoy. It was an easy choice to bring him on as the Curator of these monthly playlists. You can check out Vox&Hops' Brewtal Awakening Playlist on either Spotify or Apple Music.
