Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach Comments On The Band’s Latest GRAMMY Nomination


Killswitch Engage, etc. frontman Jesse Leach has commented on the band’s newly announced GRAMMY nomination. The band’s track “Unleashed” is among the nominees for Best Metal Performance at the upcoming 62nd annual GRAMMYS, which will be handed out in a ceremony on January 26th. Leach took to his Instagram to state:

“Not a terrible way to wake up this morning! Thanks @recordingacademy for your consideration 🙏🏼
If you would’ve told me as a young punk I’d be nominated for a Grammy never mind 2 of them, I would have laughed all up in your face! Guess you just never know who’s paying attention to your hard work and music. Regardless of who wins it’s all about Metal bands being recognized for the amazing music that comes from our scene! Recognize and celebrate our culture! Cheers and all Hails! 🤘🏼 #killswitchengage #grammys2019 #WhoKnew #JesseLeach #PunkRockMetalHead”

This latest nomination is the band’s third, having previously been nominated in the Best Metal Performance category with their tracks “In Due Time” and “The End Of Heartache“. Thus far they have yet to take home an award though. You can take a look at all the relevant metal and hard rock GRAMMY nominees here.

Killswitch Engage‘s next big North American tour will find them out with August Burns Red in early 2020. Unconfirmed rumors have Light The Torch, who feature ex-Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones, opening the bill.
