Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach is heading to Australia to DJ and try his hand at a spoken word performance – his first!
Said Leach on the upcoming 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.”
Furthermore, Leach said, “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…”
There’s no word on when US fans might get to hear Leach doing his spoken word performance, but you can catch him DJing as rOcKeRs RiOt in the Northeast. And hey, if you’ll remember, Scott Ian honed his spoken word act overseas before doing it here.
Jesse Leach DJ / spoken word dates:
1/15 – Sydney @ Hot Damn
1/16 – Brisbane @ Brightside
1/21 – Melbourne @ Spoken Word Night at Eureka Rebellion Trading
