Killswitch Engage Recording Halted By Jesse Leach Throat Problems

(TeamRock Radio) Killswitch Engage were forced to take a day off from recording their next album as frontman Jesse Leach battled a throat infection. The singer has shared "gross" pictures of the inside of his throat, showing white lumps that his doctor diagnosed as strep throat. But Leach initially feared it could be something more serious.

In an Instagram post, he says: "I have had a bit of blood come out of my mouth on the last tour, that freaked me out. Also, as of yesterday, I felt physically off and my throat was feeling irritated. I looked in the mirror with a light and saw the white splotches and kind of freaked.

"I am aware white splotches usually mean an infection, but I cannot help thinking the worse when it comes to my voice - as it is super important to my life. So it contributed to an already mentally and physically off day yesterday. Turns out it is strep throat with some swollen folds."

Leach thanked his doctor for his quick action, and adds: "I'm on the appropriate medications and will only have a one-day set back for recording." Read more and see the post and photo here.
