Killswitch Engage's Jesse Leach Shares His Escape

Killswitch Engage

(TeamRock Radio) Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach says meeting and observing people while he and his bandmates are on tour helps inspire his songwriting. He previously admitted to being "weird and antisocial" in the early days of his career with the band - spending time alone rather than speaking to other people outside.

But Leach now says it's "fun" to get out of the tour bus and socialize with the general public. He tells German festival Rock Am Ring: "I'm all about just going away and escaping. If I'm in a nice city or there's a park nearby, I just go and get lost in the city. That's one of my favorite things to do on tour.

"I really enjoy going to a pub by myself and striking up a conversation with a stranger, making a new friend. That excites me. It's something that I use to help inspire me to write as well - just interacting or even just observing people in general. It's fun, people watching - going to a place and just sitting outside and watching people walk by. I love that kind of stuff." Read more here.
