Killswitch Engage - Reveal New Album Details

The metalcore group Killswitch Engage has a highly anticipated new album coming out this year and now their label, Roadrunner Records, has finally lifted the veil a little on this release. They have announced Disarm The Descent as the title of their sixth album. The 12-track output is due out on April 2nd via Roadrunner and is the follow-up to their 2009's self-titled release. You can see the tracklist below.

The first single, titled "In Due Time," will be made available digitally on February 5th and the album pre-orders will kick off in early February, with more details to be unveiled.

Disarm The Descent is the band's first album with original singer Leach at the vocal helm since 2002's band classic Alive Or Just Breathing. Leach returned to the band in January 2012 after a decade-long absence.

Jesse Leach said about the new album: "It is with a grateful spirit that we prepare for this record's release. From the music, to the lyrics, to the artwork, we are all proud of what we have accomplished. To me this is by far my best vocal performance, much thanks to Adam's guidance and faith in my abilities. I am very grateful to be where I am in life, back in an amazing band with a record we are all excited for the world to hear. Thanks to all the fans for their warm welcome back and their undying love for Killswitch Engage."

A staff guy...
I'm actually really enthused to hear this is going to turn out. I love those first Leach albums, never really cared for Howard's albums. And I enjoyed Times Of Grace so I am hoping for good things with this new album. Obviously it's not going to be like the first Leach era but hopefully it will be better than Jones' era stuff...

I'm feeling very optimistic towards this new release! Those first two Leach albums were the band's best and I am eager to hear how they will sound on this new record. I expect this album to be really good, so hopefully it is!

Well I'm not feeling that optimistic but I am very much looking forward to hearing this record on the off chance it goes some way as being as good as 'Alive...'
