Killswitch Engage Frontman Jesse Leach Plans Solo Tour
. Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach is heading Down Under next week to launch his very first solo DJ and spoken word tour that will be hitting various cities in Australia.
The trek will feature three DJ shows that kick off on January 15th in Sydney at Hot Damn and concludes on January 24th in Melbourne at The Gasometer and Leach will host a spoken word show on January 21st in Melbourne at Eureka Rebellion Trading.
According to the announcement, the spoken word show will be called "Memories, Words and Songs," and will feature Leach "sharing childhood memories, opening up about his musical inspiration, discussing his lyrical themes, and reading personal poetry."
Jesse had this to say about the tour, "I am eager and excited to kick off my first DJ tour. I have been at this on and off for six years in the Northeastern U.S. and I love sharing music that moves me! There is an amazing rush I get when I play a song and watching the crowd react or when someone approaches me wanting to know what song I played. I do this because I love it. However, I also do this to bring to light and give attention to some of the underground bands that have inspired me and music in general."
Leach also had this to say about the spoken word show, "My spoken word night is something I've wanted to do for a while and it being my first one, I am nervous and quite excited to see how it turns out! I just want to give a little insight into my life and give something back to all of the fans that have supported me over the years through thick and thin..."
